LAS VEGAS — Lumo BodyTech announced during the 2014 International CES show a small gadget that nudges you to stand up straight.
The Lumo Lift, which comes in a variety of colors, detects your body’s positioning and when you start to slouch, the device vibrates and reminds you to adjust your stance. The Lift can be clasped to an undershirt, collar or bra strap.
“Lumo Lift tracks your body positions and movements, and when you close off your body, the sensor provides a gentle vibration to remind you to keep your shoulders back and head lifted,” a company spokesperson told. “It also provides feedback and rewards through a mobile app.”
Right now, the company is looking to crowdfund the project on its website, LumoBodyTech.com. The Lumo Lift is the latest product in the company’s lineup of posture correcting devices, but this is its smallest gadget yet.
Lumo BodyTech said it expects to officially launch the Lift in late spring and it expects it’ll cost $59-$79.
Although it only clasps to clothing, the spokesperson said it could expand to different forms of jewelry in the future.
“Wearable technology should be visually appealing and also provide the option to be worn discretely,” the spokesperson said. “Anything we wear has the potential to become wearable technology, including smart jewelry, smart clothes, and smart shoes.”
