Quasimoto

Christine Doempke



Quasimoto is a tool for maintaining an easy and balanced sitting posture while one is sitting or working at a desk.

Implementation
As we become absorbed in our work, it is easy to lose awareness of how we are sitting. As concentration draws us in to the object of our attention, usually our computer, we go into a media trance only to reawaken later to find ourselves twisted or hunched in our chairs, possibly in pain.

Quasimoto helps prevent unconscious postural distortions by utilizing the 3d Kinect camera to monitor body alignment and breathing. Providing gentle feedback, Quasimoto assists the user to maintain an easy balance as he/she sits.
