This office must-have sign lets co-workers know that you are in the zone and are too busy to be interrupted. The idea is essentially a sleek-looking sign that is equivalent to the 'do-not-disturb' signs seen in various hotels.

The sign has a modern design with an aluminum base and interchangeable signs that are placed on top. Each sign is made from acrylic material and features laser-etched text that glows with LED neon lights. It is 238 millimeters in length, 48 millimeters wide and 105 millimeters high to perfectly fit on any desk. There are multiple signs that include phrases like "wired in," "in the zone" and "on air." With a week-long battery lifespan, the sign ensures your entire workweek can be free of interruptions.

Josh Howland, Caleb Hicks and Andrew Madsen discovered that the universal sign for "busy" was to put on headphones, so they decided the create an office-friendly alternative.
