DateSlate is a concept for a wall-mounted smart calendar, intended for adults with learning disorders such as ADHD and those who struggle with organization and time management.
Adult ADHD is more common than people think. 85% of children with ADHD do not grow out of it, and only 10.9% of adults receive treatment. This means that 89.1% of adults with ADHD are trying to find ways to cope by themselves. Many people with learning disorders such as ADHD struggle with organization and time management in their day-to-day lives. DateSlate aims to address these struggles and provide solutions through its unique features.
• This calendar could also be accessed using an app.
• Much like a virtual assistant, DateSlate would be voice activated. When this feature is not in use, the user has the option to turn the microphone off.
• Reminders for calendar entries could be enabled in settings. Reminder options would include phone notifications and verbal reminders from their wall-mounted smart calendar.
When a date has passed, it will turn grey like dates from the previous and upcoming month. This visual simplification is meant to help the user stay focused on upcoming events without becoming overwhelmed.
Holding a finger down on a sticker will cause it to fluctuate in size. The user can remove their finger once the sticker reaches an appropriate size, based on its level of importance.
Tapping the “…” key will reveal keys that may be used less frequently.
A Weather symbol, temperature, and “feels like” temperature will be displayed for each day.
