As we encounter zoom and screens on a daily basis, our yes have certainly felt the strain!

What it does

Uses the 20-20-20 method, and banks every 20 minutes to indicate to you to look away from your screen for 20 seconds. Once you have looked away for 20 seconds, press the button to reset the timer.

How we built it

Arduino Uno, Breadboard, Wires, LED, resistor, push button.

Challenges we ran into

As a beginner coder and first-time user of Arduino, we had to work our way up with figuring out the hardware, and trying to get used to the language.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Figuring it out, and how to use a button!

What we learned

How circuits work, and how to code in Arduino.

What's next for Eyesight Saver

A more polished design, and an LCD screen to count down the 20 seconds you look away!
