If you’re motivated by pretty lights and the prospect of turning them on, you might be into YouTuber and robot maker Simone Giertz’s new (and first) Kickstarter campaign: The Every Day Calendar. It’s a large printed circuit board that relies on capacitive touch and LEDs to light up individual days on the calendar — the idea being that you’ll tap on a day to make it glow when you’ve accomplished a specific goal. Let’s say you want to go to the gym every day, for example, the Every Day Calendar works as a visual reward system. Sure, tapping a light might not be all that thrilling, but it’s something.

It costs $300 and is estimated to ship in December 2019, which is a long time from now. That’s an entire New Year’s resolution! Because it’s Kickstarter, I have to warn you all that there’s no guarantee that you’ll receive this on time or maybe even ever if you back it. I hope it’s a success story, though, because I appreciate how pretty it is, and I like the idea of trying to stick to something positive.
