made entirely of LEGO bricks, the cloud-based calendar by UK design studio vitamins is a wall mounted time planner that syncs up with google calendar or iCal. coded using openFrameworks and openCV, all events and schedules are synchronized to an online digital agenda, as soon as users take a picture via smartphone. the system makes the most of the tangibility of physical objects, and the ubiquity of digital platforms, providing an interactive and tactile organizer for daily life. it works by sending photographs of the calendar to a special email address, where written software scans the image, searches for the position and color of every brick and then imports the updated data directly into iCal or google calendar.
