Our computers are amazing devices. We can watch videos, listen to music, play games, edit photo, type up documents, compile presentations, and etc. However all of these functions and features can be downright distracting especially if you’re planning on getting some work done, which has led to the creation of the Saent button.
The Saent is basically a big white button that connects to your devices via Bluetooth. The idea is simple: it helps you keep focused on your work by disabling apps that are deemed to be distracting. All users have to do is press down on it and it will help keep you undistracted for the next 30, 50, or 90 minutes.
This is loosely based on the Pomodoro Technique which suggests 25 minutes blocks of work followed by 5 minute breaks, which is what the Saent button is trying to achieve. The button will also sport an LED progress bar that counts down to the remaining minutes, although we have to wonder if by itself can be considered a distraction.
Now apart from being a mere (and expensive) button, Saent will also be able to act as a gesture-controlled device where users can use it to swap between apps. It’s a pretty interesting idea and if you wouldn’t mind getting your hands on one to help boost productivity, hit up its Indiegogo page for the details.
