MEMO / Tangible appointments


MEMO is an interactive calendar system that supports people with cognitive impairment through their daily life. It expands the design of a normal wall-calendar through the integration of small detachable magnetic objects. Each object represents a particular appointment. They can be removed from the E-Ink calendar and carried anywhere with you. These portable objects trigger a multi-sensory memory process in advance of an appointment, even when the calendar is not close-by. The repetition of stimuli through various sensory organs, aids the internalization of events. Events do not remain abstract; they are experienced on different levels.
