For those of us who have to spend hours on our desks, doing whatever tasks, maintaining the right posture is a problem. We don’t do it and end up having backaches, cramped shoulders and other issues. Design firm Artefact has come up with a Pilates shirts that is equipped with a number of sensors and can monitor your muscle movement.

Pilates concept shirt

A number of companies are currently trying to break into the wearable computing markets. From smart shoes to smart watches and smart clothing, we have seen many interesting ideas surface recently.

However, the problem with most of these products is that they do look like wearable gadgets. The ideal, Artefact’s Jennifer Darmour believes, should be to create such wearable computing products which gel in with the overall look and do not stand out as a gadget or a mini-computer of sorts.

And that is precisely why Darmour has come up with the idea of a wearable computer that simply looks like a Pilates shirt. The shirt packs four sensors in it which monitor the muscle movement and body position of the wearer. And whenever the wearer is in a posture which is not good enough, the shirt tells the user what the optimal posture would be and advises him to adopt that.

The best part about this Pilates shirt is that it looks nothing more than a mere shirt. So the user doesn’t have to worry that he is wearing some kind of a computer. Moreover, Darmour states that wearable computers often generate too much data which, then, can’t be analyzed sufficiently. Not only that, the interface of such devices is often such that the user ends up being at ill ease.

Pilates shirt is unique is that it really has no interface – rather, the human body itself is the interface. Darmour puts it quite aptly, “Your body becomes the interface. We’re going from interacting with it, to it interacting with us.” Watch the video below to see how the shirt works.
