RISR: Correcting your body language
Our levels of social interaction and eye contact may have changed due to mobile technology, but for those who are shy or have trouble maintaining the correct posture in the business world, a web of sensors may be able to help.
Called RISR, a web of sensors which is connected to a smartphone scans your target -- perhaps your boss or a potential customer -- and vibrates in order to tell the wearer how best to correct their body language in return.
The idea of 'mirroring' targets is well-known in body language studies. If you 'mirror' your target's posture, the idea is that they will be more open to what you have to say. For example, RISR will remind you to face your target if they are facing you, or shift your shoulders if they do the same.
