The nature of work today is often one of multi-tasking. An hour on this project, a teleconference with some clients, a few hours on a proposal and by the time it gets to the end of the day, it's tricky to get the billable time down. TimeFlip have a simple and effective answer to this in the shape of a large gaming dice. Todd and Ilya spend some time understanding the solution.
The TimeFlip is a dodecahedron (12 sided object) about the size of a coffee mug. The shape is hollow and has a Bluetooth-enabled circuit board inside which is designed to determine which side is facing up. On the sides of the dice are symbols or words representing work activities. To accurately record time spent on a project, it's simply a case of making sure that the particular activity is uppermost. At the end of the day, sync via Bluetooth to the TimeFlip app for a complete record of work activities and durations.
Aiming at both B2C and B2B, the TimeFlip can come in a couple of different polyhedrons, and there are versions available for download and 3D printing. The TimeFlip CRAFT is available from TimeFlip for $49 and the TimeFlip MAGNET is available from TimeFlip or Amazon for $59.
