This digital billboard from Microsoft corrects posture in real time. In today's information age, people have moved away from an economy that deals with agriculture and instead values information. As such, technological advances are having a harmful effect on the way people hold themselves, from neck craning to slouching shoulders.

Microsoft is addressing the problem with more screens and kinect technology with clever integration of their Surface 4 Pro Real Time Posture Scanner. Installed in Stockholm, Sweden, the billboard corrects posture by teaching people how to properly carry their bags and makes suggestions on how to pack less heavy loads. Given how many people regular carry devices such as laptops around with them on a regular basis, this advice is particularly relevant.
