Office workers nowadays suffer a phenomenon called “tech neck”, which is chronic pain on the back and shoulders caused by improper position from looking down at the computer screen for hours. Business News Daily has cited a study that shows an average user could spend 23 hours a week with his gadgets while texting, emailing, and checking social media. Tech neck sufferers can heave a sigh of relief with the i90 Tablet Glasses, which aims to keep them in correct posture on the computer desk.

This unique pair of glasses uses a set of periscopes that reflect what is on the computer screen while looking forward, thus keeping your neck and back aligned. The i90 glasses are made from lightweight aluminum frames and two 90-degree prisms that redirect your vision downwards without bending your neck. It also works with smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and even books.

Matt Franklin, the inventor of the i90, admits of constantly watching movies using his iPad and getting updated on social media through his iPhone. His growing frustration over his own strained head and neck is what prompted him to create the i90 glasses.

“In the development process I discovered that there are other similar products that are made in China, but they’re insanely unattractive and very uncomfortable,” Franklin admitted in his Kickstarter page. “(The) i90 Tablet Glasses are designed to look cool and stay comfortable for long periods of wear.”

Take note that optimum usage of i90 glasses can be achieved if the gadget is placed in a stationary position. It would be difficult to use the glasses while walking. They are designed in such a way that it can be fitted over regular glasses and come in six color choices: blue, green, rust, purple, gold, silver, and red.

The Kickstarter campaign, which runs until November 15, has so far earned over $6,000 out of the $45,000 funding goal. Interested backers can pledge for at least $75 for their very own pair, which will be shipped in December 2013.
