Introducing LUMOBack, a device that you strap to your back to help keep tabs on your posture. According to the official site, the device uses sensors to check your spine and provides gentle vibration whenever you slouch to remind you to sit or stand straight. What's even cooler is that it connects wirelessly to an iPhone 4S or new iPad app to keep tracks of all of your movement data. Here's a clip on how it works:


The product was designed in Palo Alto by three Stanford University graduates. Since their Kickstarter debut, they’ve raised $77K out of their $100K goal. The team is hopeful that their project will help 80% of people suffering from common back problems feel better by standing taller.
