Slouch Alert is a DIY device that's helping users prop themselves up. Good posture is invaluable for one's overall health and appearance, but for some, it can be hard to attain.

Making this DIY wearable device involves equipping a basic white tee with flex sensors and iron-on conductive fabric to help kick bad habits. When the device detects a slouch beginning to occur, it vibrates, prompting the wearer to sit up straight. The goal of this device is to gradually aid in more thoughtful posture habits, eventually resulting in the user not having to rely on a device to sit up straight. The DIY Slouch Alert is ideal for office workers who spend a great deal of the day sitting, and need a consistent reminder to improve their posture.
