Monitors that sense your presence

I have a hard pick on whether to file this under gadgets or under green tech because this kind of monitor could go under either one. The reason for that is that the Eizo FlexScan 20″ and 23″ monitors turn themselves off and on based on human presence.

Yup .. it’s almost HAL-like but these monitors have a built in sensor that will switch them to standby mode if a human presence isn’t detected for 40 seconds. In this day and age of energy concerns this might be considered a nice bonus when in the market for new monitors. Not too mention the cool factors when showing them off to your friends.

Both of the monitors will be available around May 21 and sell for $385 and $455 respectively.
