TimeFlip, Ilya Tarassov

Provide a human-friendly time tracker.

DATE 2020

MATURITY LEVEL ready

Many professions require that people track their hours – this interactive gadget makes it fun.
 
People use physical actions to manage activities like ticking a box on a to-do-list with a pen, sticking a post-it on the fridge, or starting work with a mechanical time card. TimeFlip has brought that physical interaction to tracking time during the work day.

Activity tracking

Without the need of an app or an Excel sheet. The time spent is monitored and recorded on your phone.

use case

Physical extensions of the eco-system

The integration of TimeFlip with your own social network or collaborative tools (in progress) creates a magical extension of theses tools that you can control and interact with by just flipping the dice.

food for thought ...

Multi-functional army knives are physical smartphones / laptops with their unlimited possibilities and applications. What other friendly objects can be used to humanize your life and create real value?

TimeFlip is designed to stay on your desk, what about objects specific to other places?

Why not hack the TimeFlip experience for other epics and use-cases: Do Not Disturb illuminated notification to colleagues on the same room, time tracking of speakers in a meeting …
