Wearable gadget Alex+ will help to correct the posture

On May 10, the Korean project Alex+ started a Kickstarter campaign. This wearable device is worn around the back of the neck with legs fixated behind the user’s ears and helps to track the posture.

When a user starts slouching, Alex+ reminds of the necessity to fix the posture. The performance is tracked via a special mobile application. With its help, a user can view the posture improvement progress as well as browse through the special video database to choose useful exercises.

The device can work up to 10 days on a single charge. The retail price of Alex+ is around $100, but for now, it is available for preorder at $49. That is the second product version; Alex was released earlier in 2016.
