Tracking the true cost of meetings with Arduino

Tracking the true cost of meetings with Arduino

Returning to the office after the holiday period may find some of our readers stuck in meetings of incredulous lengths, and more often than not you’d rather be getting on with the job instead of dealing with a talkfest. Robert Korn had the same issues and has come up with a creative and fun solution – the Arduino-based meeting cost display.

This unit displays the increasing cost of his time using an LCD – so the longer the meeting, the more it will cost his employer. This could also be used on your desk – when approached by people you’d rather not talk to, start the timer and show them that time is money!

To get started on your own version, check out Robert’s project page.
