Who needs overpriced, ergonomically designed office furniture when you can have the Visiomate from Thanko. This USB powered sensor sits on your monitor and alerts you if you're sitting too close or if you are hunched over at your desk. The sensor will flash red and from the looks of the photo, it will yell bad words at you.

Implications - Those who work in the online industry or are students who spend most of their time in front of their computer's monitor know the toll it can take on one's posture. It would be beneficial for companies within the electronics industry to find solutions to this problem, as they are closely related to the cause.
