Abstract

High myopia is often a result of bad posture. In this project, we design a persuasion system, Lampet, to help users maintain proper reading/writing distance. By using two webcams placed on a lamp with stereo triangulation algorithm, we are able to detect the distance between user's eyes and the pen s/he holds. Mobile phone is used as a platform for visual feedback and interaction interface. A virtual character is shown on the screen to reflect the current sitting posture of the user, and a vibration alarm is used as a reminder for bad posture.
