With the proliferation of personal electronic devices, the time individuals spend using their devices is an increasing concern. In particular, users may unconsciously spend too much time looking at a screen; their eyes may be too close to a screen, leading to eye strain; their posture may be suboptimal, leading to back or neck strain; etc. This disclosure describes techniques to leverage depth information detected with user permission via one or more sensors to determine when such situations occur and to provide suitable reminders to users, e.g., via augmented reality (AR) glasses.
