In celebration of its sixth anniversary, Sid Lee Paris created an office monitor to give people on the outside the chance to look at some of the mundane things that go on in its workplace day-to-day.

If you've ever wondered how many times doors are opened, toilets are flushed, stairs are used, or how much coffee is made, this Arduino-powered app makes it all apparent. The public dashboard is available for anyone to view online, although as Sid Lee describes, it's only a "(un)interesting data" that's revealed. Technology may be highly prized in the modern workforce, but this is a clever way to reiterate that the creative, human side of business is really where magic truly happens.
