Spending the majority of our day sitting in front of a computer has few antidotes: regular breaks, non-ironic sun salutations, and incessant complaining about being chained to our desk. Laptops, too,Â are great proponentsÂ of a slouchy stance, so in order to combat neck and back issues, we have to fight tech with tech. This Kickstarter campaign has the best solution weâ€™ve spotted so far.
UPRIGHT GO is an alert-based tracker that acts like a friendly nudge reminding you to sit up straight. Simply place it betweenÂ your upper shoulders and, using sensory technology, it will track how upright youâ€™re sitting, and alert you through vibration when you start to slouch. The company predictsÂ your posture will render itself top notch in two to three weeks. Not only is it small enough to sitÂ comfortably beneath your clothes, itâ€™s also water- and sweat-resistant, with a battery life of just under nine hours â€“ perfect for the working day.
Considering the device has already surpassedÂ its US$25,000 goal by more than $200,000, we say this will be on the market very shortly. WantÂ to snap one up before the campaign ends? Click here.
