Make It Wearable

There are a few options for attaching your Circuit Playground Slouch Detector to your garment. Some other items, like the JST extension cable, can also make locating the battery more convenient.

Pocket It

If you have a shirt with a front pocket, you can just drop it in there.

Silver Pin

The silver pin with adhesive foam back can be used to attach the Circuit Playground to most any garment.

Remove the protective film from the adhesive back and apply the pin to the back of the Circuit Playground.

Press it down firmly and you're good to go.

Magnetic Pin

The magnetic pin is a nice option if you don't want to stick holes in your shirt. Or just don't like sharp pointy things.

Remove the protective film from the adhesive back and apply the metal strip to the back of the Circuit Playground.

Just to be safe, apply the pin at the angle shown. It is metal and if you put it on horizontally, there's a slim chance it could short the 3.3V pad on one side to the GND pad on the other.

Locating and Activating

Somewhere below your shoulder seems to work best.

The best location is in the general area below your shoulder.

Now sit up straight. Press either button to set the target angle. Two beeps should sound. The slouch detector is now activated!
