Studies have already confirmed that working out with a buddy helps keep you motivated. Personal trainers do wonders to get you out of bed at the crack of dawn to bust a sweat. And inputting everything you eat into a handy iPhone app is a surefire way to stay accountable for all your calories.
Basically, it’s easier to lose weight when you have assistance-whether that assistance is human or machine. This must have been the logic with the creation of the new “smart” shirt that contains sensors to read your body’s position and muscle movements during yoga and pilates.
Move by Electricfoxy, which is currently in development, is a “concept technology garment” that guides your body toward optimal performance and precision by linking the shirt to a mobile app. The app then lets you assess, manage and track your body’s performance. Together, they read your body’s position and muscle movement, assess whether it is correct and provide real-time feedback to correct it through components located in the hips and shoulders. Yes, ladies, it’s the future.
Why do we need a shirt to keep us in line? “The more precise you can move, the faster you improve your fitness and overall health,” says the company.
