Remember those halcyon days when your mother would chide you to sit up straight should you ever start to slouch? Good news, desk jockeys, because Philips’ ErgoSensor desktop monitor is here to stop your stooping now that mom’s no longer around — and it doesn’t require you to wear some silly plastic pendant or occupy any of your USB real estate. The 24-inch, 250-nit, 1920 x 1080 display has a sensor in its bezel that watches you while you work, and warns you when your posture becomes poor or if you’ve been staring at the screen too long. It also informs users how to set up the monitor for optimal viewing distance and ergonomic position. Plus, it can tell when you’re not around and shut the screen off to conserve power. We don’t know how much money the monitor will cost or even when it’ll be available to fix your poor sitting form, but we do know you can learn everything else about it at the source below.
