    Lock If Not Hot - Lock a computer automatically when you leave it (but with a twist)


    1. Lock If Not Hot application
    2. IR Temperature Sensor
    3. A Windows PC

    When Phidget came out with this new IR temperature sensor, a lightbulb went off. This sensor measures temperature without contact. Point it to the chair in front of your computer, and it will measure your body temperature. Or the temperature of your chair, if youíre not sitting in front of your computer.

    And thatís the idea: I wrote a program that locks your Windows workstation when you leave your chair (e.g. when the temperature drops).
