We slouch too much and this is an incredibly annoying solution

What it does

When your back is positioned too far from the back of the chair, a buzzer sounds until you correct it.

How we built it

We used an Intel Edison and programmed in Arduino. We have an ultrasonic sensor that measures the distance.

Challenges we ran into

We tried adding a display on a laptop, but couldn't get a server set up to send over the data.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Actually getting something done

What we learned

We learned many hardware skills, as well as programming in Arduino.

What's next for Posture Chair

A more solid working prototype as well as a display and possibly a sensor to activate it.
