Reminding Timepiece

Context: Given the quantity of thoughts that run through one’s head every day, it’s easy to understand why so many things are quickly forgotten.

Problem: Planners, to-do lists, and calendars all allow people to efficiently keep track of upcoming deadlines for events and tasks. However, there aren’t many products that help the user to remember personal thoughts, such as goals, ideas, and guidelines.

Solution: The Reminding Timepiece offers gentle, non-time specific reminders to the user. Each glass node illuminates briefly to emphasize its inscribed message. The nodes illuminate in a randomly generated order. Every time the user glances at the Reminding Timepiece, they will be prompted with a different message. nodes that aren’t in use are stored in a holder to the side.
