Businesses worldwide are drowning in unproductive meetings. It is estimated that no less than 70% of all 85 million meetings happening a day in the world are a waste of time and money.
Timeqube is a mindful light-based cube that uses colors: green, yellow and red to gently indicate passing time. It won’t tell you exactly how much time is left. Instead, you will know when half of your precious meeting time is gone, when you should start wrapping up and finally when the time is up.
Once Timeqube is placed on the meeting table, it does just one, very simple thing: it reminds people of passing time but without all the stress of regular timers.
What is unique about Timeqube is the philosophy behind it. Our brand emphasizes the role of stress and its health-related consequences at work. We believe there is an increasing need to make workplaces more enjoyable and less stressful. We have created a product that universally helps people in managing their meeting time while reminding them to stay mindful and live in the moment.
Timeqube takes advantage of human peripheral vision. Thanks to its size and light-generated halo, users do not have to take their eyes off other meeting participants to check up on time progression.
Andrzej Dobrucki, Timeqube founder started developing the idea after considering how ineffective typical meetings are:
“Most people hardly stay on topic throughout the meetings, while others engage in lengthy debates or simply tune out. By staying mindful of time yet not stressed by time, people change the way they relate to the meeting itself. They just easily become more productive in it”
In the times of notoriously interconnected devices, Timeqube boasts to be fully analog providing no smartphone connection. It seeks minimum attention while offering today’s rare commodity – sensuality and mindfulness.
It is made of a soft-touch covered polymer which is nice to touch and pleasurable aesthetic. It just looks great in any meeting room.
Timeqube’s sole interface is The Tap as the team calls it. The device is powered on and operated by simple tapping while featuring 6 most popular meeting presets – 2,5,10,15,30 and 60 minutes.
Part of the team’s mission is also to remind business people worldwide, that there are ones that have no or little time left. We donate 3% net profit to cancer research worldwide.
Timeqube. Because time matters.
