Sensor-packed Pivot is your wearable yoga teacher

Altogether now: namaste

Who needs a yoga teacher when you could just pull on a specially made shirt and leggings that’ll handle all the instruction for you? A total of 16 almost imperceptible sensors tell Pivot’s accompanying iPhone app exactly what angle every major bone in your body is at, how it’s rotated and how far away it is from the rest of the body, providing real-time feedback so you can make sure you get your poses right. And with positionings recorded 50 times every second, it’s always got your back. Because there’s nothing worse than doing Ardha Chandrasana when you should be in Natarajasana. The clothes cost US$99, while a subscription to the training videos costs US$19 per month, and unfortunately they’re only available in the US and Canada for now. Total corpse pose.

Stuff's second Tom has been writing for the magazine and website since 2006, when smartphones were only for massive nerds and you could say “Alexa” out loud without a robot answering. Over the years he’s written about everything from MP3s to NFTs, played FIFA with Trent Alexander-Arnold, and amassed a really quite impressive collection of USB sticks.
