Whim: Daily Stack

, 19 May 2010

Long-gone the days where we used to pile up tons of books, files & paper loads on our desks… we now have laptops with tons of outlook reminders instead! However if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic about the physical “cummulative” factor, then Daily Stack can help you…

Sébastian Rønde Thielke & Anders Højmose have designed this “Daily Stack”. A playful tool that helps you become more “aware of your daily work-flow and time management”. By creating a physical representation of your tasks, Daily Stack speaks subtly to your conscience and helps you manage your time through unobtrusive ambient feedback.

The base is connected and powered through USB
Base and wooden bricks

Daily Stack consists of a base device and a collection of wooden bricks in different shapes and colours. The bricks represent different kinds of tasks and time-intervals. By adding a brick to the base you commit yourself to the task and time span that the selected brick represents. Daily Stack communicates with an desktop widget on your computer that enables you to keep track of your time and tasks in progress. It also enables you to browse through your past and and compare your days in a colourful informative pattern.

And how it works…

unfortunately (as in most of these beautiful cases) this is just a concept :S
