We all know how dangerous are mosquitoes who carry germs and infections and also serious diseases. With its mosquito away range of Air Conditioners, LG provides a solution to get rid of the pesky creatures while cooling the room.

5. LumoBack Posture Sensor
Bad posture is often responsible for most of the back-related problems. Our mothers always reminded us to sit straight, to stop slouching and to walk straight with the head held high. LumoBack Posture Sensor does exactly that. It is a wireless sensor that is worn with a Velcro strap, which is in turn buckled to your waist, under or over the clothes. The LumoBack senses your posture and gently vibrates when you slouch. The vibrations act as a reminder to stand up or sit straight, preventing back pains.
