This disclosure describes techniques that, with user permission, automatically detect the posture of a user of a personal computer. The user’s posture is detected using hardware typically found on a desktop or laptop PC, e.g., cameras, without requiring extra sensors or other additional hardware. If the detected posture is determined to be poor, the user is alerted. By detecting and alerting the user of poor posture, the techniques can help forestall health problems. The techniques are implemented with user permission. Users are provided with options to turn off posture detection.
