This posture corrector isn't an uncomfortable brace, but a tech-embedded wristband that acts as your walking coach. Developed by Zikto, the Arki can identify the posture of the person wearing it and offers tips on how to improve.

Currently seeking financing on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, Arki is a wearable tracking system that offers haptic feedback to improve your balance. Arki can detect a variety of metrics from number of steps taken to foot rotation angle. It offers more than physical advice; the walking coach also lets you know bad habits like staring at your phone.

Loaded with an accelerometer, pedometer, calorie counter and sleep tracker, the posture corrector also acts as an activity tracking device to offer you a well-rounded look at your health and real-time feedback.
