former lead designer at Lenovo has created the Saent button that transforms the time management theory called Pomodoro Technique into a tech-savvy work aid. The Saent is designed to help desk workers avoid distractions and conduct highly productive tasks in 25-minute segments.

The Bluetooth-connected button is essentially a muter that is placed on a desk and deactivates apps and social media sites to create a distraction-free work space. When the button is tapped it shuts out the web-based world and uses an LED light to count down the remaining time. The timer presents a reward-like challenge that has proven to be highly effective.

The device is also fully programmable so users can decide which apps and sites will be muted.
