Fi­nally a fix for ‘tech neck’, but it’s go­ing to re­quire yet more tech­nol­ogy

Bespoke - - WHOA! -

If you spend hours hunched over a com­puter, or star­ing down at a phone, you’ve likely been plagued with a pain known as ‘tech neck’. Un­for­tu­nately, bar­ring ac­tu­ally clos­ing your lap­top or hold­ing your phone above your head, there’s no easy cure. But that may be about to change, thanks to a Korean start-up called Namu that has de­vel­oped a pos­ture-track­ing 100 USD wear­able – Alex – which works by sens­ing the po­si­tion of your head and neck in real-time, and if you’re hunched and bend­ing your neck down for longer than a few min­utes, vi­brates to re­mind you sit up straight. Alex works in com­bi­na­tion with an app that’s con­tin­u­ally track­ing your pos­ture so that you’ll be able to mon­i­tor your progress and en­tirely rid your­self of tech neck, within just 21 days.
