Where Africa and Technology Collide!

PocketMod – Like a PDA, but Made of Paper

PocketMod LogoIs this a regression in technology or a progression in regressive technology? Actually, PocketMod is really a neat tool. You can create a personal day-timer, planner, shopping list, etc… All you need is a computer, one sheet of paper and a printer to make this work for you.
Some benefits:

  • It fits easily in your back pocket or purse.
  • It’s as cheap as one piece of paper (Because that’s all it is!)
  • It opens like a book. Leading to easier to find, more organized notes.
  • The first page has a pouch, big enough to carry a business card!
  • Customizable with “Mods” tailored to your needs.
  • It’s free and fun!

An added benefit is that with the new desktop-based application, you don’t even need to get on the web to make your planner.

  1. Oh, the offline version is also new to me – nice! I often use paper cd case for creating paper cd cases. Work great for me as they take up less space + eco-effective + those CD spindles (?) often come without extra covers.

    I think most of these Origami-back-to-the-roots-folding-bubudius are just kewl.

  2. JKE, I agree. Sometimes we (myself in particular) get mired down in new gadgets (as my recent slew of articles shows) that don’t necessarily make ourlives that much easier. The PocketMod people obviously had an end-goal of simplicity.

  3. tried it, nice, i used the shopping list mod today! Thanks.
