The actual functionality of this tool itself confuses me. Why would I ever want to visualize my schedule in this manner and with this kind of a UI? When I go to make a new appointment of visualize my week/month/year/life I have never yearned for a UX that looked anything like this. Furthermore, dragging to whatever I want to see (ala google maps) potentially way far in the future would make me pull my hair out. I don't really understand how it solves anything around this problem space. I dunno maybe I just don't get it. Regardless my hats off to the people who made this and I wish them good luck.
I found that with my previous calendar, a lot of attention was lost to the past.
Any thoughts about the "Grid" mode, and "Shift" which might speed up navigation?
My name is Sahil, and I'm excited to share this v1 of Spase.io with you. It's a 3D planner where time moves forward, instead of in 7-day loop-de-loops, so that when you see stuff in the future, it really looks like the future.
So if you have a project deadline, a birthday party, or a reminder to do laundry, that event will actually register spatially in your mind as in the future.
Spase.io clearly not as powerful as Google Calendar or Todoist but it does hack your brain to focus on the future.
What do you like about this v1, and what do you want to see it become?
For example, if you could have multiple calendars on top of each other (with transparency to view layers below) that would be some actual value.
Right now its just eye candy. I for one dont need eye candy.
Will add to feature list asap.
But on desktop you could make an account, create events, and then read events on your phone!
If you like the time-distance mapping idea, this 1D calendar might be worth trying: http://www.oneviewcalendar.com/ (i'm not affiliated in any way, just used it for a while). Some old threads on HN: https://news.ycombinator.com/from?site=oneviewcalendar.com
To get going, head to spase.io on desktop, make an account (with your handle of choice) then you're good to go.
Desktop is where you can create, read, delete events. Mobile is read only (for now).
This kind of visual navigation would help user to define their own physical nested shapes like House, Rooms, Desks, Folders Files etc. This eliminates the weak points of dumb nested folders. This also helps in real physical world in putting personal items somewhere in the house, because in computer world you can "search"!
It would be interesting to see urban visual to store items in weird hierarchy such as year > month > date > items.
Oh, and MS Bob. Not really 3D, but maybe a bit closer to the house/room/desk analogy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Bob
(High processor usage with both browsers, BTW, not just Safari.)
I'd suggest making it a little more clear which day is selected and a lot more clear which item is selected (plus editable text/color/date).
Also, is there a way to make my calendar private? Public-by-default doesn't seem wise.
Would love a tech write up :)
I'll be sure to respond in < 15min!
Any feedback at this stage will go a long way into improving the product.
Super Medium? https://www.supermedium.com/
Btw the Supermedium guys are great. I think they worked on A-Frame, which was really key to making this.
No way I would ever use this. But I have to admit that it is a nice demo and certainly a good portfolio project.
