Shred the Day

Susanna Hertrich created this prototype Chrono-Shredder as part of a student design project.

It represents the passing of time by shredding the days of the year-- printed on a paper roll-- at a slow constant rate.  To shred one day takes 24 hours.  There is no 'off'-button.  As the seconds pass by, the tattered remains of the past pile up under the device.

If you're interested in manufacturing the Chrono-Shredder, get in touch with Hertrich via her website. - via ryanyeah

Perfect trap for consumers - it ties you into buying the refill calendars for future years. Far better than just selling something that does the job, sell something that has 'em coming back for refills. Like hairdriers that spray some noxious substance at you - you have to go back and buy the refills.
