Working Walking / Pedometer

Working Walking
Researches suggest that sedentary office workers may develop health problems. During work, except for handling documents, people are used to spend a lot of time sitting, waiting for uploading or downloading of files in front of the computer.
To solve this problem, we designed a simple pedometer for office workers, which encourage them to get up and take a walk while they wait. This “Working Walking” pedometer, by connecting with the computer, can detect whether you have start walking and start sending your files. You’ll need to keep walking on the spot to make sure that your files are completely sent.
