Modern lives are focused on technology and, while convenient, have led to a rise in the sedentary lifestyle, so the 'Monk' is here to help. Acting like a mini robot that sits with you while you work, the 'Monk' is almost like a scaled-down fitness tracker.
The 'Monk' will start blinking if you've been sitting for too long, which prompts users to grab it, stand up and walk around/get active. 'Monk' is packed with a microprocessor and motion sensors that work together to figure out if you're really moving or just shaking it to mimic actually getting up.
With sedentary lifestyles being blamed for a rise in various health ailments, new products like the 'Monk' help to offset the downsides to the digital age.
