All joking aside, this might actually be a useful teaching tool.

I can see it now. A man wears it while dancing and it vibrates. I don't want
to imagine the woman's reaction.

I've heard of good vibrations, bad vibrations and now, expensive vibrations!
Be sure to look at the fine print before ordering the Posture Improving
Device because you'll also be automatically enrolled in their club.
Membership benefits include a "Free" Lifetime Supply of Adhesvive Patches
and Batteries for which you'll be billed $7.95 every 30 days. They'll also bill
you another $14.95 a month, plus $7.95 S+P for the "Free" supplements
included in your first order. That comes to $22.90 plus whatever they charge
for S+P every month thereafter.

Good grief! Here they have a saying "tada hodo takai mono wa nai"- there
is nothing as expensive as what you are given for free...
this posture device reminds me of the "ionised towel" that a friend of
mine bought for about 200 dollars and kept wearing it around her neck.
It looiked just like any other towel to me, but was supposed to be full
of good energy.
Hope that device works at least!
