Japanese Memo Clock Cute Idea

“QUICK SHOT” #1

Link – by Avi Abrams

Japanese Memo Clock: cute concept which actually involves WRITING

This is sold in Japan (at Taobao stores), but actually made in South Korea: the Memo CLock is ceramic, comes with the erasable marker and prompts you to plan your day and stick to the plan! It’s the last part that’s the trickiest, of course.

This ceramic Memo Clock was designed by Korea’s DESIGN ONE brand, and it already won the 2009 Red Dot Design (Reddot) and good design (GoodDesign) Awards.

See if you like the idea… to us it looks rather like a bar of soap; but slimmer designs could be made easily available. By the way, we have a bunch more cool and weird clock designs (from ultra-modern, to unabashedly vintage and quirky) that we will share with you shortly. Stay tuned.

BONUS:

The Retro Cloud Clock

If you STILL can not follow your own agendas and forget your appointments, perhaps the following humongous device will help? It prints time on clouds – and will follow you wherever you go, so you will never have an excuse. This epic idea was first introduced in Popular Science, April 1933, and earned the nickname “The Bat Clock” (you can guess why).
