The whole point of wearable tech is not to notice you’re wearing it, right? That doesn’t appear to be the case with this lumber-based slouch tracker.

Instead of a small button-style sensor, the UpRight is comprised of a four-inch long device that sticks vertically to the lower back.It’s anything but discreet if worn with, say, a bikini – in fact, it looks like you could replicate the system to some degree by simply sticking a lollipop to your back – but in many respects a method like this could be arguably more reliable than the majority of other posture sensors.

The UpRight is fitted with two sensors that help correct posture by vibrating at the first sign of a slouch. It can be used with or without the accompanying Android and iOS app.
