Hiatus is a game-based posture-capture wellness product that serves its users by promoting healthy practices and taking breaks when working with computers. Specifically, the product addresses neck, shoulder, wrist and back problems created by spending long hours at keyboards and on screens. The project is ongoing and currently focuses on neck problems. Besides the physical benefits, Hiatus relaxes and refreshes users. After playing Hiatus, users will engage in their works more efficiently and cheerfully.
