This summer I got a free tablet. Because I mainly work from my laptop, it didn't get much use. Instead of letting it lie around, taking up space, I decided to make it fit into my life in a different way.
 
I started working on a personalized bedside hub, with "widgets" that I would want to use in the morning when I get up, in the evening when I'm heading to bed, or whenever I'm mulling around my room.
This is the first prototype of Bedside.
 
When I wake up, I can tap the screen to make the clock transition to this dashboard. From here I can put on my contacts in the mirror, check my calendar and todos, read my emails, and even access Netflix and Spotify. Plus, since I always check the weather in the morning anyway, it gives me that information straight up.
 
As I continue to play around with it, it will become more functional; for now only a few features work. But this WIP has already made my days at home a little nicer and a little simpler.
