As we use computers and smart phones for hours a day, we often slouch, have our head down, or assume other positions, all of which can cause neck pain and back pain. Furthermore, poor posture can cause blurry vision due to its effect on the connection quality between your spinal cord and your brain. Since we don’t always have some to tell us to “sit up straight”, we often tend to look down at our phones or hunch over our keyboards without thinking about it.

What Is the CZUR Mirror?
The CZUR Mirror is a device designed to help you maintain proper posture and adopt a better sitting habit.

Then as you look down, like when using your phone, or slouch forward, the Mirror will sound a chime and flash red laser lights on the desktop to get your attention.
