On the Creative Applications Network, a look at a LEGO Calendar that actually syncs with Google Calendar. The LEGO pieces are used to "visualise complex logistics systems in a simple and tangible way, Vitamins solution allows you take a photo of it with a smartphone all of the events and timings are synchronised to an online, digital calendar."
On the calendar, every row represents a month and every column represents a day of the week. Every person in the studio has their own row and every project has its own colour (they keep a little index hidden away to remember which colour represents which project). Finally each brick represents a half day spent on that particular project. Every time someone changes something on the calendar, all they need to do it take a photo of it with any smartphone. Then, they just email the photo to a special address they created. A couple of seconds later the sender will receive an email letting them know that all of the information on the lego calendar has been synchronised to their digital calendar. The system currently uses Google Calendar but this could work with any cloud based calendar.
