Correct posture uses a machine tutorial to create a baseline of where a user's body parts are when assuming a good posture.

The user starts correcting his posture, such as keeping the screen at eye level, relaxing the shoulders and putting it flat on the floor.

The technology requires a camera and the screen will become blurry if the user is not seated correctly. The camera constantly monitors the position of the user through a webcam.

Taking these measures leads to the creation of reference points that the program can use to monitor your posture.

When a person lingers, the user's eyes or shoulders fall from their previous position and the screen becomes blurred.

If the thighs are not parallel to their body or the feet do not stay flat, the eyes and shoulders of the user change position and the screen becomes blurred.

The experiment only works on the Fix Posture site, but it gives employees advice on how to maintain their posture while on a computer screen.

The user can also set a reminder to return to the website every hour to ensure that they are correct, according to motherboard.

In a chatter, Olesya Chernyavskaya, the designer of the software, said: “Are you in the right position now? My new experiment detects your posture and blurs a screen when it's bad. Made with @ TensorFlow.js, #PoseNet Model. & # 39;
