Slouching. It happens to the best of us. Did you know you can build a slouch detector with Circuit Playground?
Have you already made a remix of this project? Let us know! We want to see all the creative ways you’ve been using Circuit Playground this month. Share your projects on social media for the community to see with #AdafruitExtraCredit #CircuitPlayground and submit them at Adafruit.com/ExtraCredit!
In this guide we will go through the steps to turn your Circuit Playground into a slouch detector. Using one of several pinning options along with various battery supply options, you can then wear your Slouch Detector while sitting at a desk. It will provide a warning if you, well, get a little slouchy – hopefully with reminders, you can keep your good posture and maintain a healthy back!
This project uses the sensors already included on the Circuit Playground so no additional electronics or soldering are required. You will also need some batteries and a holder for the batteries.
Here at Adafruit we’re happy to see what the community is up to. Whether you’re posting on our G+ Community Makers, hackers, artists & engineers, pinging us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook or joining us on Show and Tell, we’re seeing what you’re creating and it’s exciting.
This August we’d like to see all of your Circuit Playground projects. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, regardless of how recently you completed a project with Circuit Playground, share it on Facebook, G+, Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter with #AdafruitExtraCredit #CircuitPlayground and submit it at Adafruit.com/ExtraCredit for a chance to have your project featured on the Adafruit Blog and maybe even a surprise Adafruit treat!
