Even though your schedule is constantly at your fingertips via smartphone, everyone gets a little off track every once in a while. So the creative studio Vitamins dreamt up a solution that bridges real-life and online schedules: A giant Lego calendar that syncs up with smartphones.
Their calendar looks just like your iCal, except it's physical and made of toys. And it actually works -- there's one row for each month, a column for every day of the week, a colour for every project, and a minifig to represent each person in the company. Each brick stands for a half day on a project. The calendar works both offline and online, and to sync it, you just have to snap a photo with your phone and email it to a special address. Vitamins uses Google Calendar, but it says the system could work with any cloud-based scheduling system.
The studio has used their Lego calendar successfully for a year, and some day you could use it in your own office -- Vitamins plans to put the code for the calendar software online soon. Then you won't have any excuse to ever be late again. [Vitamins Design via DesignBoom]
