Nekoze, a Japanese term which means having a curved back, so the free Nekoze program for OS X lets you install it on your Macintosh so it can monitor your posture through your Macintosh’s built-in webcam.

The moment the program detects your posture slouching, it displays the happy cat icon with the word Nekoze! This promo is meant to get you to sit up straight once more. Whether it works or not depends on whether you cooperate with it, but if you’re used to having a real cat boss you around your own house, then you probably won’t mind a virtual cat bossing you around your computer.
