Analog Memory Desk Keeps Your Notes at Hand

If you’re anything like me, your desk (and the table next to your recliner, and the counter next to the phone, and pretty much every other flat surface in your house) is covered with sticky notes, scraps of paper, old envelopes, and all manner of other papers covered with handwritten notes, phone numbers, and various bits of information you need to keep longer than it’ll stay in your brain. Sticky notes are the best choice since they’re harder to lose, but they still eventually end up on the bottom of my shoe and then lord only knows where they’ll end up.

The Analog Memory Desk sounds like it could solve at least a few of my endless scraps of paper problems. It’s a desk, which is handy, but instead of having drawers it’s got a giant roll of butcher paper that stretches across its surface, allowing you to make whatever notes you need to without fear of losing them or accidentally throwing them away. When you fill the surface area, just crank the roll until clean paper appears. Not only will this give you room to make new notes, it’ll save the old ones from being lost forever.

If only it could also make me write things down in such a manner that I remember later what it meant. I can’t tell you how many phone numbers I’ve written down with no indication of who they might be, or order numbers with no indication of what I ordered. But at least I wouldn’t have 847 pieces of paper (most of which look like trash, let’s be honest)!

The Analog Memory Desk is just a concept piece for now, created by Kirsten Camara. And I will admit it doesn’t really have much else going for it other than the novelty of having a giant spool of paper on which to make notes. But for someone like me who is constantly writing things down, it could well be worth whatever it may end up costing if it comes to market.
