Stick it, shape it, do whatever you want with it. Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue that once stuck, turns into rubber. Kind of like a better, useful version of Silly Putty. Boasting a 6-in-1 formula that can fix, bond, cushion, replace, create, and seal. It’s unique formulation means it does what you want it to in all kinds of environments (think freezer, dishwasher or a steamy shower). Great for indoors and outdoors too. The real magic, however, happens when you mix Sugru with a bit of imagination.
Remembering what you’ve been working on and for how long is always a gruelling task, which is why there’s a ton of apps that help track your time. Few do it well, others only exist in pixels. That’s where ZEI comes in, making it easy to instantly switch between your time-tracked tasks with a physical 8-sided device that sits unobtrusively on your desk. Using the polygon shaped device is simple. Mark each side with your tasks using pen or stickers and whatever task is on top will be the task that it’s currently tracking. Connect it all up to their app (which works on macOS, Linux, Windows, iOS, and Android), flip it, sit back do work, and watch your time track itself.
