Intelligent Monitor Stand

Do you spend hours in front of your computer each day? With this clever monitor stand from Seeed Studio you can not only raise your monitor to protect your back, but also be provided with useful statistics about how many hours you have been spending in front of the computer. The project uses an ultrasonic distance sensor to determine if someone is sitting at the computer, and a OLED display to provide feedback to the user.

Monitor Stand

There are lots of possibilities for extra functionality that can be added into the monitor stand, but even in its current form it is a great project that will help you to develop your maker skills, whilst still providing you with a very useful end product! To get started on this fantastic project, check out the following link.

OLED Shield

If you are attempting this project why not check out the Freetronics OLED Shield LCD Adapter. The adaptor is designed to work with the Freetronics Eleven and will allow you to easily connect a 128X128 pixel OLED module to the Eleven so that you can easily interface between your Arduino and OLED module. Check out the product page to find out more.
