These leggings can improve your yoga form #WearableWednesday

Nadi X from Wearable Experiments. From the press release:

…Using a custom developed language that allows skin to become the interface, Nadi encourages the user to correct form and posture by issuing haptic vibrations. With gentle pulses, feedback is given to help adjust posture and achieve fitness goals. Nadi is accompanied by an Android app, which demonstrates the areas on the body needed for adjustment. The frequency and intensity of each vibration changes based on the body position and angle, and is illustrated in poses within the app. This real time tactile technology aims to change the way we interact with ourselves.

“As someone who doesn’t always know the correct form or alignment in poses, I find having that proper guidance is crucial,” says Billie Whitehouse, co founder and CEO of Wearable Experiments. “As a lifestyle product, Nadi not only acts as that guide, but also integrates into your everyday life reminding you of something as simple as uncrossing your legs while sitting down. ”

The app, to be available on Android and Apple devices later in the year, works with the pants to register range of user movements, aligning the postures with haptic vibrations. The app also offers recommended poses, illustrating guidance on correct alignments and posture. Nadi pushes the boundaries of human to computer interaction, while allowing it to keep the user at the center.

“We believe technology should empower the human experience, not overtake it,” says Wearable Experiments co founder Ben Moir. “With Nadi, the sleek design allows technology to seamlessly integrate with the tights, allowing the beauty and design to take center stage.”
