A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Giiro - Personal Posture Coach on Your Smart Desk
People sit at their desks for more than 8 hours a day at work. And they know it destroys their posture and balance - that’s why many turn to standing desks and standing mats. But without a good habit and practice, they are right back to poor posture even while standing up.
That’s why we create Giiro - Personal Posture Coach on your Smart Desk.
Giiro Mat has 600 sensors with 1,024 levels of pressure, right beneath your feet.
Using a standing desk for eight hours puts extreme pressure on your Posture. Giiro Mat's soft surface has been designed especially for use with standing desks.
The Alexa-enabled Giiro Posturebot gives you real time feedback on your posture by mimicking your movements.
Giiro Mat is a mat for standing desks. The soft and cushy Giiro mat not only relieves stress on your feet, but also monitors how much weight you’re putting on your left or right foot in real time, and syncs the data with Giiro Posturebot and Giiio app.
Giiro Mat’s 600 sensors, each of which can sense 1,024 levels of pressure, measure the position and weight distribution of your feet with extreme accuracy. Giiro App displays the data in real time as well as over a period, so you can remind yourself to stand straight and track your improvement.
Giiro Mat also offers a stretching program that helps restore balance and good posture. Giiro Mat is synced with Giiro Posturebot and shows notifications and gestures, so you know how you are doing even without digital devices.
Giiro is a personal posture coach on your standing desk. While you are focused on your work, Giiro keeps an eye on you, analyzing your posture, and coaching you throughout the day. Giiro even mimics your posture and has different facial expressions to let you know how you are doing.
Personality goes a long way
Giiro has 9 different expressions that change depending on your posture. A quick eye contact with Giiro teaches you a ton about your balance! Giiro also mimics your posture - it leans in the same direction and degree as you do, and crosses its leg if you put too much weight on just one foot.
Plays well with others
Giiro has Amazon Alexa built in. You can control your smart appliances, including GAZEDESK Smart desk with your voice.
Giiro also plays music! Synced with smart devices via Bluetooth, Giiro turns into a speaker on your desk.
Pick your own Giiro
Giiro comes in many designs. Giiro Kid and Office Giiro are available right now, with more coming very soon. We plan on collaborating with our partners to bring even more Giiros to the world! Giiro is also customizable with stickers.
Step up your posture game
Giiro Mat’s soft rubber surface is designed to reduce stress on your feet and legs. 600 sensors inside Giiro Mat monitors your posture and balance and syncs the data with Giiro Posturebot and app in real time.
Giiro App is available on both iOS and Android and syncs via Bluetooth. The app displays your body balance in real time with intuitive visuals. You can also track your improvements over time, and make your posture even better with stretching programs.

GAZE LAB’s mission is to make beautiful gadgets that improve people’s lives.
We at GAZE LAB design and create IoT devices and mobile apps with new user experience for smart lifestyle.
We have a track record of success. We successfully launched G.WALK, a personal mobility device, in 2015. In 2016, our Kickstarter campaign for GAZEDESK, a smart standing desk, that goes perfectly with Giiro Mat, raised $156,312 from more than 200 backers.
Our crowdfunding campaign for SMAKIZ, a smart standing desk for kids, along with wireless charging mousepad, was also a success in Korea.
We collaborated sensor-based tech startup company, Morethings for Giiro project. Morethings research a technology that improves standard of healthy life. Their unique and patented sensing technology could be applied to various smart healthy IOT gadgets such as smart insole, smart golf mat, and so on. Providing remarkable experience to their services. They think innovation and exceptionality is not enough. So they are create things that never happened before.
Giiro is a smart posture coach designed for passionate people at their desks around the world. Giiro helps you keep fit and healthy even when you are focused on your work.
Risks and challenges
We create things that never happened before.
GAZELAB and Morethings have made great efforts to provide a completely new user experience. Therefore, in order to monitor the posture of the user, it was possible to implement Giiro Mat with a built-in sensor inside the legacy rubber mat.
Furthermore, we were able to develop prototypes and verify their operation to provide services in conjunction with Giiro. Based on the continued improvement, we were able to demonstrate our product and service at CES 2018 and TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco and Berlin.
We are now verifying and improving the design and assembly process to facilitate mass production. Manufacturing will only be carried out in Korea, and quality control can be guaranteed. We are also designing cases and packages for OOBE(Out Of Box Experience), and GAZELAB and Morethings will share with you as soon as they are finalized.
If we make changes to the appointment schedule, we will share it quickly and build a consensus. Nevertheless, we are endeavoring to ensure that our complete products and delivery commitments are kept.
GAZELAB and Morethings are convinced that trust with customers should be respected.
