…It’s Things Thursday: The Average Day?

The Average Day

The Average Day is a fantastic watch from Mr Jones Watches that “eschews the conventional division of a day into 24 hours, instead it divides into units of median daily routine”.

By breaking the dial down into segments that represent what an average person does on an average day, you can see what you should be, on average, doing at any time.

It’s even split into AM and PM, with the outer loop representing the former, and the inner representing the latter, so that you can roll right through a full 24 hours without missing a beat.

The production is a signed limited edition of 100 pieces, and each has the edition number engraved on the back of the case, which itself features commissioned artwork by Kate Street.

At just $150, if you want one, you better hurry.

…The paperless home is in our future?

Paperless Home

According to The New York Times, we’re closer to a paperless world than most people realize.

Documents can be scanned, photos are all digital, phonebooks are non-existent, and if it can’t be Googled, then it doesn’t exist.

Our computers are quickly becoming the storage solution for almost everything, and paper is falling out of fashion as a means of documentation.

What does this mean for the average person?

Not much now, though in a few years, a Jetsons home may not be such a pie in the sky dream after all.
