Straighten Up with Technology

Davison Creators - LUMOback3LUMOback2LUMOback1

Health and fitness gadgets were all the rage this year at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. One notable product was the LUMOback, which aims to improve your posture.

An electronic belt is worn around the waist and when you start to slouch it vibrates softly, signaling to straighten the lower back. Data collected throughout the day is sent to the accompanying mobile app, which reenacts your recorded posture via an animated character.

It’s a simple concept with huge paybacks and at $149 each you have nothing to lose, except maybe scoliosis.  :)

This desk and stool set was designed with a contemporary appeal, and is slim enough to be used in a tight space like hallways and dorms.
It is a British design, using solid American Oak.

This sphere takes on unique motions and formations, then returns to the original sphere-shape while at rest.  It’s amazing how small it appears, until you see the creator pick it up to program it in the end of the video!

The most difficult real estate in a room is the corner.  There are no excuses to leave a corner unused though, take it from these designs. 

Here are examples like a shelf that wraps around a corner, a repurposed door and even an IKEA-hacked organizer.  Now go make use of those corners!

Conceived as a means of fundraising at a college gallery show, these three-legged birdhouses have gone on to become popular collectibles.

These birdhouses are made in two varieties; one is an indoor version made of walnut and the other is an outdoor version made of teak. 

Standing on three legs, these smooth, soft structures are easy on the eyes, as well as functional for birds of all kinds.
