Description

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method based on 25-minute stretches of focused work broken by 5-minute breaks. Longer breaks, typically 15 - 30 minutes, are taken after 4 consecutive work intervals. Each work interval is called a pomodoro, the Italian word for tomato, so named because of a tomato-shaped kitchen timer that the technique creator used. For more detail on this popular technique and how best to use it, google the term.


 

This technique is now usually practiced with alarms set on a cell phone, or a dedicated Pomodoro app. This Pomodoro tracker is designed to complement the digital tools by providing a physical and visual element. The physical act of turning the tomatoes and the visual color changes from green to red enhance the mental switch signal to the brain for starting a pomodoro, ending a pomodoro and taking a break, and thereby enhance the experience.


 

The tracker is 4.8 inches (122 mm) wide, 1 inch (25 mm) deep, and 1.4 inches (35 mm) tall. Can be placed under the monitor, or anywhere on the desk.


 

Easily print with PLA without support. The tomatoes are two-color prints while the stand is single color. Use the provided print profile to save the time setting up color assignments. Colors are assigned by height range and have only 1 filament change.


 

Simple assembly: Push the 4 tomatoes onto the pegs on the stand.


 

Simple to use: As shown in the photo below, start from the initial state, turn the first tomato on the tracker to its green side when the 1st Pomodoro began. When the 25 minutes time is up, turn the tomato to the red side, then take a 5-minute break. Turn the 2nd tomato to its green side to begin the 2nd Pomodoro (this is not shown in the photo), and continue and repeat the cycle until all 4 tomatoes have turned red, then take a longer 15-30 minute break.
