Check out the Every Day Calendar on Kickstarter! This link will magically transfer you there:
🌟 🌟
One of my favorite things about the Every Day Calendar, is that whenever I tell people about it everybody has a different thing they would want to use it for. Leave a comment with your ideas! I’ll be over here growing back the ass I’ve been working off.

What's wrong with developing something that people appreciate and earn money from it? You can just sell it for profit and don't need to excuse yourself.

Did I hear "flossing" in that list? It won't work for me, because I don't floss. It won't work for Marla Maples without three lights per day, because she flosses three times per day.

Hi Simone, I am on regular Medication and I really see this calender be more stylish then making X on a regular Calender. So I would love to support it and get one. But, 4 questions: 1. Is it usable in Europe? (230V, 8-16 A, AC) 2. Has it an Type F Cord/Plug or is compatible to an Type F Adapter? 3. Will you ship to germany if it is done. 4. Do I need to push the Buttons in order day by day or can I skip out some days? (like "I dont need to do X on Weekends so they dont need to be pushed (glow/consume Power))

i love it but i'm a little bit concerned about the current draw from the wall and the life span of the lights since it's on 24/24 7/7 i would defenatly buy it if you were to ensure me these are not problems, becouse it's so simple i love it

Anyone know where to get the switches used on Simone's prototype for this calendar? I love the tactile feel over the touch but don't have a clue where to get them. Any advice?

February 29th. Two buttons. One button specifies that you are going to have a February 29th that year. When you push it, the position for February 29th changes from solid black to match whatever is shown for any unlit date. Then, when you press the position itself, it changes from unlit date to lit date. At the end of the year, you press the first button again, and it toggles February 29th back to black.

Topher The11th Před měsícem
Topher The11th: Actually, there should be four states for any button. One state would be reserved for the February 29th in years in which it doesn't occur. In the years WITHOUT a February 29th, this state is the state that that button would have, all year long. The next possible state is for a date that does occur in the current year but hasn't occurred YET in the current year. The third possible state is for a date that exists in the current year and HAS already occurred (or is the present date). The fourth possible state is for a date that exists, has already occurred or is the present date, and is a date on which you did the thing that is the "gold star", such as meditating or whatnot.

So in the video you mention that you were going to open-source this. But I don't see links in the description or on your website that point to said source. What I'm thinking is making it with RGB LEDs so one tap lights up color1 and a second tap lights up color2, etc. You could potentially then program in custom hues and reuse the calendar year after year without resetting it. I'm also thinking of one without the calendar grid, just 365(6) lights in like a spiral shape or something. This would let you keep track of multiple goals based on the color of the LEDs. So you start tracking meditation in yellow, then come back and tap on the first light to turn it red to track your reading time, then go back to the first one and tap it again to make it green or blue or whatever to track other multiple goals. With RGB LEDs and a non-fixed-date layout you can potentially track any arbitrary number of goals as long as they start on different days. Though, I think without the fixed-date layout you might get confused "did I mark it today already or not?" which could be problematic for some people - I understand why you went with a fixed date system anyway. This fixed-date version could still be used to track multiple goals this way, though, if it used RGB LEDs and were programmed to support it, it'd just be up to the user to remember that color2 is a day or however much behind the current date. Anywho, since I don't see having any of this flexibility in your production model, I was hoping to get the source to be able to play with making my own. Do you still plan to share it?

-> If you do yoga or exercise twice or thrice the same day, you could add three more colors, yellow, orange green on same button pressing twice or thrice... -> was it "they don't really care abt us" beat sounded cool in between...

Oh, Simone, you did a good thing! It may take me a while to save up for this but one day an everyday calendar will be mine. Oh, yes, it will be mine. =-). Hmmmm. If I save $1 everyday for a year....I wish there was a really cool tactile tool that I could hang on the wall where I could keep sigh of my goal and track each day I save a dollar. haha

"I'm worried people will say, 'You're only doing this to earn money'..." Stop right there! This is your business. Don't apologize for trying to make a buck. I mean, I get it, you have other motivations too and that's great, but never feel bad for trying to earn a living, even if you love it and it sometimes doesn't feel like work. I had a friend in high school who was quick to call any band that encountered success, a sellout. Choosing to earn a living vs. struggling to put food on your plate is not being a sellout. It's being an adult. Don't apologize for it. Keep making great stuff!

Jackie Learns & Teaches Před 4 měsíci
It would be cool to have a few different colors available. Like, switch it to blue, and add a blue day. Then switch it to yellow, and add the same day in yellow. blue could be my “practice guitar” color, and Yellow could be my “meditate” color. Each color would save the days that have been selected for it.

so... this 365 LED device will suck power all year long because you don't know how to use a paper calendar and a marker?

Love the vibe ... great idea ...also you are right ... anything that relies on you and you alone and does not make you money when you can not me there ... is just not scalable and will eventually run out of gaz ... good luck with it
