The typical page-a-day calendar sits on your desktop, and that's part
of the problem — it just sits. It marks the passage of time with as
much panache as a lump of... well, a lump of paper. Environmental
impact aside, the traditional calendar is a lifeless relic of a bygone
Less than a third the price of an ordinary desk calendar, Daymation
"Sticky Calendar" is anything but ordinary. While paper calendars go
kaput after a year, Daymation is just getting started — not only will
it serve up colorful daily animations and stories over the next 365
days, but it will go on doing so for the next 365 years — and beyond.
The minute you launch Daymation the fun begins. Our resident pint-
sized prof, Tiny Einstein, calculates the remaining days until the
next major holiday and jots the results on an old-school chalkboard.
Once the cover folds open, Daymation presents a pencil sketch that
comes to life in a brilliantly-colored 3D cartoon. From an iPod-
wearing sheep busting a move, to a Harley-riding amphibian ("frog on a
hog"), there's a professional animation to accompany each and every
day of the year.
Flip the current date over to reveal entertaining and educational
trivia, amusing anecdote or story. The range of topics covered is
vast. There's historical events, medical marvels, bigwig birthdays,
cultural curiosities, brain bogglers, obscure inventions, travel
trivia, amazing animals, murder mysteries, and a whole host of strange-
Daymation keeps the holidays coming year round with an impressive
assortment of celebrations from far and wide. Learn the nitty-gritty
behind the battle for the Bastille that marks France's national day,
or get the inside scoop on the scandal behind Columbus Day. An
international smorgasbord of holidays are all covered in detail,
including China's Lantern Festival, India's Diwali, and Scotland's
Major sporting events from around the globe are also featured in the
calendar. Basketball, soccer, golf, American football, baseball,
hockey, cricket, mixed martial arts, tennis, swimming, and surfing are
all represented. You'll discover how the Super Bowl got its name from
a child's toy, why cricket's greatest living player treasures thirteen
low-value coins, and where surfers take on 60-foot waves.
By the time you've soaked up a year's worth of material, don't be
surprised if you suddenly find the game show Jeopardy to be hopelessly
pedestrian. The varied stories presented in Daymation are perfect
fodder for mealtime conversation or water-cooler banter.
But wait, there's more. So "stick" around... literally.
With the addition of stickies, Daymation serves as a convenient and
fun datebook, to-do list, idea bank, and event calendar all in one.
Completely intuitive, stickies can easily be assigned to the current
day or any day in the future. Want to move an appointment to tomorrow?
Simply slide the sticky to the right. Want to save a note for later?
Just drop it into the desk drawer. Got lots to do? Pile the stickies
as high as you like and shuffle through them with a flick of the finger.
Select from four brightly-colored sticky pads to color code your
notes. Use red for hot dates, green for money matters, yellow for
bright ideas, and blue for birthdays, or come up with your own novel
approach — Daymation is designed to work the way you do. By employing
the best of the Getting Things Done methodology, Daymation keeps you
organized, productive, and on schedule.
On the subject of timeliness, the month-at-a-glance sticker on the
current day may be peeled back to reveal a vintage flip clock.
Complete with appealingly-animated leaves that tumble over to advance
the minutes, the retro clock serves as the perfect timepiece while
charging the iPhone in its cradle.
