You can actually hang this Google-synced Magic Calendar on your wall... some day in the future


Calendars are a thing of the past, a thing of the present and a thing of the future. Those paper things we hand on our walls? Past. The cool, colored and event-packed calendars in our phones. Present. A mix of the two? The future.

At least this is what this conceptual product coming from a Japanese Android Experiments campaign is all about.

A simple idea, it brings what looks like a perfectly usual, traditional wall-hanging calendar, but rather than using boring paper, the imaginative minds behind this concept change the material to an e-ink display. An e-ink display is two things: low-res, but most importantly - extremely (and we mean extremely) battery frugal.

It's the perfect material for a wall calendar that hangs on the wall for months and in this case, it could well last forever.

Everything else is rather simple: this e-ink calendar that looks just like a paper calendar, syncs with your Google Calendar account and magically brings those dead calendar numbers to life with events and color. Events refresh automatically and months change automatically, so you don't need to manually move that plastic window every day. Unfortunately, it's all in the concept stage at the moment, so it may never materialize as a real product, but we know that if it did, we'd want one. What about you?

I have been asking eink companies for over 5 years to produce a colour eink calendar that I can put on my wall & control from Google calendar or other calendars. But still nothing.

Totally a 'take my money' thing.

That's something I'd buy without hesitation
