The iPosture is a nifty little device worn next to skin which can sense when the body slouches and vibrates to remind the wearer to straighten up.

Our mothers who nagged us when we slouched have been proved right for bad postures don't just hunch our shoulders but could lead to lower back pain. Poor postures also make us look shorter, appear to have smaller busts for women and promotes the belly pooch which not attractive to either sex.

The device looks like a round pendant so it can be worn as one and will suit either formal or informal styles. Or with the help of EZ stick pads, it can be worn discretely under clothing. The iPosture can also be attached to bra straps.

The technology that powers the iPosture is WINS, or Wearable Intelligent NanoSensors where the microchips continually monitor the wearer's posture. It uses a coin-sized battery. Operation is easy - just wear the device, stand up straight (or chose a sitting position) and push the only button it has to set the device for yourself. Hold the button for more than 3 seconds will pause it. Turn it off by taking it off.

The iPosture will soon be available for $100.
