The biggest thing that has spiked since the U.S. presidential elections? Anxiety levels. With news reports and Trump’s tweets pummeling us with every little update on events, the desire to have a digital detox understandable. 3D printing company Othr has created a calendar that allows people to keep track of their days without relying on digital products. Introducing the Perpetuum Calendar that lets users physically move blocks to mark the passage of each day.

The calendar is said to be inspired by the industrial boom, specifically the “sawtooth” roofs of factories from the 1920s-1930s. It is made up of a plastic similar to fabric and is 14k gold plated. Although it’s not a cheaper alternative to a calendar app, it’s much more visually enticing!
