Kalanda

Kalanda was a concept for an electronic networked [hence LAN] calendar. One for unit for home and one for office, the units synchronise once docked onto their stand over a standard phone-line connection ensuring they are always fully up-to-date. For example, amendments made to organiser information at home, appear on the partner unit at work.

Note: The concept for Kalanda was conceived back in 2005 at a time where over-the-air connectivity was still relatively new and the term ‘cloud computing’ hadn’t been invented yet. Although the functionality looks limited by today’s standards, I like to think at the time it was forward thinking, indeed the O2 mobile operator released a similar device in 2009 called the ‘O2 Joggler’.
