Some of the most enthusiastic smartphone owners still prefer to use sticky notes over pop-up notifications, mobile memo pads and calendar alerts. The 'It's Time to Read Me' concept optimizes the cork board scheme that allows you to keep your cluster of to-do lists right where you can see them.
Kim Sung Min's innovative idea was to give thumbtacks the capacity to light up as reminders. These pegs are a little larger than usual, so to accommodate the LED bulbs inside at a scale noticeable enough to grab your attention. Each pushpin integrates a tiny metal dial on its tip so that you can set the precise intended date and time of its illumination. 'It's Time to Read Me' would be sold with a special pinboard that delivers the thumb tacks their power.
