Abstract

There are a few basic things that most people hang up in their houses. 1. Wall Clocks 2. Calendars To further elaborate on calendars, they come in different shapes and sizes. Most people like to mark them with events. They have to be replaced every year with new ones. My idea is a thin digital calendar. It would be a really thin tablet which can be mounted on the wall. It can vary in sizes from 13 inch 21 inch. Below is the functionality I imagine in it.
