Seattle, WA — LivingPattern Technology Inc. is excited to announce the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for ALIVO, a unique device that monitors your sleep at night and reminds you to avoid sitting around for too long during the day. The company is hoping to raise $25,000 on the popular crowdfunding platform to finish this project and bring ALIVO to backers all around the world.
“We tend to feel like sitting is relaxing. We often get so immersed in what we are doing that we forget to take a break or sleep. We spend hours sitting at our desk, in bed, or on the sofa. Subconsciously a sedentary lifestyle becomes part of our life,” the creators explain, “While for some of us, the effects are not immediately noticeable, science has shown that there can be serious longer term medical issues. Sitting for too long is damaging our health.”
Day and night, ALIVO is there to remind users to stay active and get the best sleep possible. Working desk jobs and constantly using laptops and smartphones can keep us glued to one spot for long periods of time and prevent us from getting proper rest when we are at home. ALIVO uses small sensors called iBalls to track your movement. These small and elegant devices are connected to a smart USB Hub and controlled by the user via an Android or iPhone app.
ALIVO monitors you while you perform daily activities like sitting at your desk, watching TV, or playing video games. When you have been sitting for too long, you get a notification reminding you of the amount of time you have spent sitting along with recommended activities to get you up and moving for a little while.
ALIVO also monitors your sleep, giving you a detailed report about your sleep quality each day along with a happy message to wake up to. Users can set their preferences to be reminded to go to bed at a certain time, since staying up past your desired bed time can be detrimental to cultivating a healthy sleep cycle. By staying active throughout the day and sleeping well, users will find they have a lot more energy and focus in the most important aspects of their lives.
“ALIVO is in development by an amazing and experienced team of Taiwan’s leading software engineers and designers based in Seattle and Taipei. We know our stuff well. Built upon the combination of the IoT, sensors, cloud service, and apps, we design and develop ALIVO to motivate people to get up, get active and get healthy,” says the team, “We have come a long way working with our hardware manufacturer to make the prototype. Now, it is time for a more comprehensive test of our apps and hardware. We hope that with your support, we can go for mass production and launch our product and service to the market.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of limited rewards including one ALIVO Hub and iBall for as little as $79, one ALIVO Hub and two iBalls for $99, and more. Backers can also pledge the Super Early Bird price of $239 for one ALIVO Hub and three iBalls or $529 for two full sets with two Hubs and ten iBalls.
