On the Kickstarter page, Giertz said: “Take it from someone who’s never managed to keep a New Year’s resolution: making commitments is easy. Keeping them is what is hard.
The Swedish inventor, who created a video channel for comic robots that don’t always work as expected, has more than one million subscribers on YouTube.
“The Every Day Calendar has a non-volatile memory, so even if it loses power or if your turn it off, it’ll remember what days were lit up. I keep my habits, I get to tap that day to light it up. It’s like getting a gold star sticker, but way less sticky.
“The Every Day Calendar is 0% internet connected, so no apps, WiFi, bluetooth or computer programs are needed to set it up. Just plug it into the wall and you’re ready to go.”
