The World Would Be A Better Place if...

...there was an invention to negate the every day work-related bugbears that drive us all a bit mental! And is there a worst time of the week for work's little annoyances to spring up than on a Wednesday slap bang in the centre of your mid-week slump?! If I were to pick two of my biggest annoyances that affect me on a day-to-day basis, they would without doubt be:

1. Filling in timesheets, attributing every minute of every day to a task or client; and 

2. Listening to bad music played out via the shared office Spotify account.

If only they were inventions of some kind that would soften the blow or offer some kind of solution to these daily niggles? Well i'm pleased to say my prayers have been answered with the
 following two beauties...

Free beer Friday when the office timesheets for the week are all completed! Genius and totally addresses my first loathe! I personally can't think of a better form of motivation than an alcohol-fuelled bribe! It's simple, there is a fridge in the centre of the office, full to the brim of icy cold beer which is electronically locked. This fridge of dreams is connected to the office timesheet programme which automatically unlocks once all office timesheets have been submitted for the week - watch below for the full story...



So that's the timesheet dilemma dealt with! Next up how to tackle co-workers bad taste in music?! Well i've found just the trick ... The Change The Tune interactive poster which is connected to Spotify and allows you to change a tune by simply throwing something at it! So let me set the scene, 'Gangnam Style' starts blaring out of the office speakers, you shiver with disgust and put your head in your hands BUT with the poster hung on your office wall, those days are loooooong gone. The poster is essentially a target, so as soon you hear the words Oppan Gangnam Style simply take a ball of paper and throw it at the poster - hey presto Spotify will skip to the next track. Not to get all techy on you but the back of the poster hosts a knock sensor that registers the paper hitting the front and passes a signal through to the Spotify computer moving the music track on by one! Amazepaperballs right?! Check it out below...



That's it for my Wednesday pearls of wisdom - I think we've all learnt something here! Next up tackling world peace...!
