Intelligent time management devices that enhance work-life balance for remote workers at home

With remote work becoming increasingly prevalent, the lines between work and personal time have blurred, resulting in mental health concerns like anxiety and depression for 75% of remote workers. What if we could redefine the way we approach work-life balance?

Focus is a speculative project that offers an alternative future for telecommuters who are looking for a more balanced lifestyle. Focus consists of an intelligent time management system that combines an app and a desktop accessory. With this app, users can customize time units according to their interests and moods. The interactive scale allows for real-time visualization of the time spent on work and personal activities.

Focus is more than just a practical tool for improving attention and time management; it is a thought-provoking experience that encourages users to reconsider traditional measures of productivity and success and explore alternative approaches to achieving a fulfilling life.
