Want to improve your posture? This wearable posture sensor from Coretech Robotics will remind you whenever you slouch and help you maintain a good posture:

Posture sensors/monitors have been a recurring theme on this blog. They are supposed to remind you of your posture and prevent you from slouching, which can be a cause for back pain and headaches.While my previous sensors were either fixed to a chair or desk, this time I wanted to create a wearable version, that would allow for free movement.
