A Standing Desk, a Posture Corrector and Wrist Phone
Kickstarter can be depressing and intriguing at the same time. I love so many of the products that are being funded by Kickstarter but I HATE the fact I didn’t think of it first.
New Wearable Technology Keeps Your Posture in Check
I pre-ordered my first Kickstarter product at the beginning of the year and we are anxiously waiting for the final production of the product so they can start shipping. I purchased two; one for me and one for the hubs.
Lumo Lift is a small, beautiful device that you wear on your chest to track your daily activity and help to improve your posture. It pairs with an iOS and Android app to allow you to view your progress and gain valuable insights about your behavior. Lift measures how many steps you take each day, how many calories you burn, and how much time you spend in strong, confident posture. If you choose, Lift can also provide discreet vibratory feedback when you slouch to gently remind you to sit tall or stand strong.
If you are interested in purchasing one you should do it quickly they only have 16 more units available for pre-order at $79. The regular price will be $99.
Keep Track of Your Kids with a Phone/GPS Tracker for Kids
One of my other favorite Kickstarter products is the Tinitell Wristphone for kids. I so wish I saw this while the Kickstarter campaign was running I would have made a donation to this one as well. Especially after we found out the kids went into a neighbors house without telling us. We had to have a long, long, talk with them. This wristphone would be perfect not only can you call your child and check on them, but the watch also has a GPS tracker so you can keep an eye on the kids via your iPhone.
Transform Your Desk into a Standing Desk
Ever since they started installing stand up desks at work. I’ve been dying to get my hands on one. I’m at the very bottom of the list, so the chance of me getting one is next to impossible. I would even love one at home but it’s hard to fork out the cash when you have a sit down desk waiting patiently to be used.
But I finally fount an affordable and portable standing desk, the Upstanding Desk.
The Upstanding desk sits on top of your existing work surface and the height is fully customizable to fit your body and workspace. It’s made from five pieces of precision-cut Canadian Birch plywood and sanded to a satiny finish. It fits together seamlessly without any fasteners and can be assembled and disassembled in just a few minutes.
