Voiceover Artist: Wall Gadget Records a Dozen Reminders

We all leave notes for others from time to time. Whether we live with parents, spouses, roommates or kids, it seems like our schedules are so busy that face-to-face communication is not always possible. The Record Me concept, designed by Luc van Hoeckel, is a neat alternative to sticky notes left all over the place, letting you easily record your notes in your own voice.

As demonstrated in the above video, the recorder works with a simple series of touches. One touch to record, another to stop recording. A touch to replay the message and a longer touch to erase it. Various colored lights let you know which of the 12 positions hold a message waiting to be listened to.

Despite looking suspiciously like a smoke detector, the Record Me is a cute, playful concept. It would allow you to be just as passive-aggressive as written notes (if you’re into that sort of thing), but with the added benefit of allowing housemates to actually hear the tone of your voice.
