Grazer Startup Causes a Stir at the TechCrunch Disrupt

Many processes in a person’s working day supposedly last “only a few minutes“. In fact, it often turns out that people end up requiring many hours of their working time to take care of many small tasks. The path to greater efficiency begins with an analysis, namely time tracking. The paradox is that keeping track of time usually takes up a lot of valuable time The Graz-based startup Timeular now wants to solve this problem. Its eight-sided cube ZEIO enables people to simply record the time involved for up to eight tasks.

Tracking time should be fun

If the cube is turned to its side, it begins to count time, conveying the information to the time recording system on the smart phone and PC. The new system assumes responsibility for carrying out the strenuous part of the work. It supports all common operating systems. The sides of the cube can be manually labeled or glued, which means there is a creative component. Together with the haptic experience, this component is designed to provide something which is unchartered territory for time recording: it should be fun to do. 

Measurement instead of estimate

Moreover, the cube, which is turned for every new task, decisively changes another factor. Conventional systems usually estimate times at the end of the day or even for a longer period of time. In contrast, ZEIO provides precise measurements and eliminate the subjective feeling which often leads to drastic errors of judgment.

Launch on Kickstarter in the coming week

The startup in Graz was also able to convince an expert audience at the TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco last week. In the TechCrunch blog, ZEIO was described as being “hugely useful” and furthermore, it said: “It has made time tracking – and I hardly dare to say this – into a funny thing”. In the coming week the gadget will be launched on Kickstarter, and should sell for less than one hundred euros. According to Timeular, more than 5,000 people have put themselves on the waiting list for the Kickstarter campaign.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
