Since February 2017, Baro has been developing smart futons and robots that recognize posture, and aim to launch and ship products in 2018.
The robot 'Baro' moves along the user's posture, recognizing the wrong posture in a more positive way and helping him to sit upright. It also provides a custom solution through the application and motivates it to form the right habit. Unlike conventional posture correction related products, it does not provide any physical feedback and allows users to visually confirm their posture.
An official said, "We will provide various contents and feedback that will help us to develop proper posture habits after launching future products. After that, we plan to provide various feedbacks to the seated people while keeping the right posture as a platform using speakers." He also presented the future plan, saying, "Based on the DB, we will make the service more helpful to the customer. Global sales will begin in the second half of 2019."
"If other companies have already released smart device products, we would like them to consider ways to link them with 'Baro'," said Woo Jung-bum, CEO of Baro.
