Puncher was created as a result of the frustration in not having a quick and simple way to register how many hours we spent on the projects we were working on. We wanted something that was flexible and intuitive to use, and that would allow us to do all of the tedious calculations in one batch rather than all the time. Skrekkøglesbeautiful Work Recorder also influenced our decision to make something tangible rather than simply digital.
Puncher seemingly consists of two parts, a base and a rotary push-button. The base contains all the hardware, hookup for cable, and a teeny tiny battery, while the button is used to choose project and start/stop registering hours. The button also serves as a diffuser to ensure an even spread of light.
With Puncher your list of projects is represented by different colors that you can scroll through by turning the button. When you land on your desired project, simply push the button and puncher starts doing its thing. When Puncher is activated, the light pulsates slightly to indicate that it is counting hours. As soon as you push the button again the logged hours are uploaded to an external server.
