SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - Is your zen out of whack? Zap it back into correct form. A new pair of smart workout pants will vibrate if your yoga pose is less than perfect. Needless to say, these pants are causing quite the buzz.

Australia-based Wearable Experiments, unveiled these high-tech tights just a few days ago. Makers of the Nadi Smart Fitness Pants are planning to make them available in May, but many are already imagining how these pulsating pants might come in handy during yoga practice. Cindy Trevino, Director of Operation for the Joy Yoga Center says, "If your hips over to the left, and your pants are vibrating, move them."

Built-in sensors and vibrating motors helps the wearer achieve a better posture. The pants will also work in tandem with an app, to help the user track their progress and reach certain fitness goals. It's like having your own personal yoga instructor, in your pants. The sensors work in real-time to pulse you back into a correct pose. Trevino says, "They should be vibrating to get your hip aligned with your leg, so that your hips not popped out. And as you move into what we call a Reverse Warrior, it would be vibrating to make sure your body's in alignment as you get into that pose."

Vibrating pants do sound thrilling, but try not to get too excited about these tingling tights, they break after about 25 washings.
Also, there's no word yet about the cost. Still, it sounds like you can't go wrong with these vibrating pants. Whether they help you reach enlightenment, or just give you a cheap thrill, it's a win-win situation. Namaste.
