Crowdsourcing Mornings: Tempo: The World’s First Adjustable Hourglass Timepiece

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Tempo is the traditional hourglass redesigned for modern life. It combines form with function to change your relationship with time and master your minutes.  It’s engineered to be durable yet elegant. Built with thick, hand-blown Borosilicate glass, Tempo is made to last – so you can use it for work or rest.  Tempo’s custom built adjustable mechanism enables it to have 3 time settings: 5 minutes, 15 minutes, and 25 minutes.  Tempo helps you visualize your time so you’re more intentional with it. Imagine how much more you could get done & enjoy life if we owned our time.  Whether you want to get more out of your time at work or in life, Tempo is the tool to help you see time differently and use it well.  Use Tempo to get focused and be productive.

The three time settings built into Tempo were chosen to optimize both your work and play. Pair different times together depending on your task and activity.  Set a timer for a 25 minute focused work sprint. Journal for 15 minutes or meditate for 5 minutes. Or break down an hour-long activity into four 15 minute blocks.  To set a time, simply turn the dial to the time you want.  Use Tempo to be more productive. Tempo helps you clear your head, stay focused & get more done.  In our modern world of constant notifications, demands, and distractions, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Use Tempo to be more present – whether you’re reading, meditating, relaxing, or working out.
