There are many modern cuckoo clocks in the world, but Cue is one that puts a twist on the conventional purpose of this time-telling device.

Cue is first and foremost designed to be used for building better habits in life, so it works with an app to offer reminders when a healthy habit should be initiated. To help transform a new routine into a habit, Cue offers chimes that serve as alerts for when a task should be completed. Cue also uses a method it calls "timeboxing" that calls for a person to focus on a task for 25 minutes straight, before focusing their attention on another task.

Although app connectivity is a large part of Cue, the fact that the system takes the form of a tangible, modern cuckoo clock makes its reminders much harder to ignore.
