More individuals are spending long amounts of time staring at a computer screen, and many of them do not maintain good posture while doing so -- in an effort to fix people's posture, 'Fix Posture,' a new machine learning program has taken drastic steps. The program blurs your screen, making text illegible when you are not sitting with the correct posture in order to prompt you to fix your posture.
To use Fix Posture, users give the application access to their camera which keeps a reference point of when the individuals have good posture -- for example, having relaxed shoulders that are level with feel flat on the ground and with your back fully supported. When the program senses that this position has changed, it will blur your screen until you correct your position.
