LUMOback Device Monitors Your Posture

Innovator Andrew Chang has come up with a device that could help us improve our posture. The LUMOback sensor is worn around your waist and will vibrate if it finds you are slouching. But the best part about the LUMOback is it can be paired with an iOS device over Bluetooth to help you monitor your daily posture habits. The LUMOback can identify if you are standing, sitting, slouching, or laying down. Chang (a co-founder of the product) has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project.
