I love my gadgets. When it comes to keeping dates, however, I rely on a stylishly simple desktop tear-the-date calendar. It works great most of the time to get a quick confirmation of today's date at the end of a long week. But if I'm not on my game (which tends to happen at the end of a long week), days will go by without torn-off pages and my simple calendar is nothing more than a paperweight. Wouldn't it be nice to have a calendar that tore off it's own pages for you?
Well one company has done it. This nature-inspired autumn calendar was designed by advertising agency Euro RSCG from Duesseldorf, Germany, as a marketing tool for leaf blower manufacturers STIHL.
As the fall days go by, the leaf-adorned leaves of paper fall to the ground below, leaving you with a brand new date and a growing mess. It's the perfect way to sell leaf blowers, but we're getting jealous thinking about having a gadget like this on our desks.
An automated tear-away paper calendar would satisfy my primal urge to write things down on paper, but while still giving me all of the advantages of having tech stay on top of things for you—so you spend less time tearing sheets off calendars and more time picking them up from the ground.
