While working at the office, it turns out that computers that use Linux are a bit more complicated than Windows to quickly lock when you leave your station. Some music programs like Sonata are also a little complicated to manage with short commands.
This is the main reason why an external control panel can be very useful to all of those who work in an office where they constantly receive people for consultation.
The circuit is composed of the following components
● Grove Kit
● Grove based shield
● Chainable LED
● I2C touch sensor
Essentially, all that needs to be done is connect every component in the respective port. Once the connections are done, a container must be built. If something stylish is required, wood or plastic is the best option. If not, then cardboard will be just fine.
All the components are put inside the box. The LED is left outside to clearly see it when it is working. Finally, it is plugged via USB to the computer and it is controlled via a Python script to synchronize with the desired programs.
