MIN.IT is a concept clock that runs on processing and uses computer webcam to recognize post-its placed around the clock as input to trigger notifications. MIN.IT stands for Minimal, Intuitive Notification system with Integrated Time, and was designed to be a collaborative tool for multiple applications. This system creates a physical space where people can share their schedules at work, at home, in a club, or even for a family.
Design MIN.IT is minimally designed in order to fit into the workflow of any environment. The setup of MIN.IT comprises of a webcam connected to a computer, and a clock with an hour hand. MIN.IT detects colors and can be calibrated for different lighting.
Future Applications The technology behind MIN.IT can also have other applications, such as creating a communication platform for people who are not comfortable with technology. By creating a bridge between the virtual and the physical world, people can choose to send a text message by simply pasting a post it note on MIN.IT. By adding magnets, MIN.IT could also be used as a communication tool between family members in order to get notification about meals, groceries or transportation schedules.
