Notifly is an appointment reminder that is as unorthodox as it gets. In place of the more traditional beeps and buzzes that tend to be issued from such appointment reminders, it issues a playful bubble that serves as more of a visual cue. Completely eye-catching, it rethinks the way people interact not only with their everyday objects, but also with the environment they are placed in.

Created by design and consulting firm IDEO NY, the Notifly appointment reminder is part of the larger Monyay series -- with is a pun on hateful Mondays. Turning such negative perceptions on their heads, the design is meant to bring a little joy into the office in an unexpected way. The appointment reminder pairs with a calendar app that boasts a bright, colorful interface.
