great and simple idea...
i asked me if it is possible to bring this in the virtual world with the same simplicity as sticking it up on your notebook.
thanks for commenting! Maybe there is a way to bring it into virtual world. I found it more attractive to bring something we know from tools like Skype back into the real world. Simple cardboard flags seam to be a lot more flexible to me as a digital solution. Take "post it's" for example.
i agree with voto, its really good actually, that this is a real world flag,
cause people need to see that for direct personal communication.
Something else we work at the office with is a "IDGAF" Hat of any sort. Whenever you are wearing the hat, nobody is allowed to disturb.
i actually ment it wouldt be very helpfull, if this simple post-it thing automaticly change your facebook status.... or what ever ... if you stick it up. Because often the realworld and the digital world aren´t apart from each other.
A great way to communicate. But I'm afraid he bude little noticeable in the office.
I think, it's just a question of size and practice. If you introduce flags like this, i'm sure people will quickly learn to notice and respect it.
wonderful, just wonderful concept voto! you can put a flag, on your desk too, maybe...
Thanks very much Adrian! Yes, some bigger flags on the desk might work too.
I actually worked at a place that had giant flags that you move around from desk to desk, they were based on the floor, very tall, they said "Leave me Alone", "Eating Lunch", "Need Help" etc. Thought it was funny :)...
Sounds really cool, Anna!
Just a little to big for coworking spaces maybe. = )
Hi Anna, i think what is good about the small ones is, that evryone has it's own flags. They are very cheap and you can have it with you whereever you like. You could even use it in a coffee bar to come in contact (or not) with people around you.
I think your idea has a lot of potential!
Communication, privacy and openness are very interesting and relevant topics in coworking spaces and you offered a smart and simple solution for it. Thumbs up!
I was actually thinking myself of a clip on the top of screens, as one good example, of what a feasable concept or product for coworking spaces could be.
I like the idea of additional customizable flags, as it adds fun.
("Need Love" "Tired" "Talk to me" ; )
Try to make it as feasable as it can get (Is it cardboard & plastic clip?)
Do you have a second option/idea of implementation? (like real small flags, a lego man holding your flag on top of the screen, or a digital connection like leds connected to your googlechat status)?
Great that you are in good Luck!
first of all, welcome on the other side!
Thank you for your contructive and positiv feedback. I will think about the details and some further developments in the upcoming weeks!
Good input from you here!
Perfect! = ) Thrilled how you will develop it!
Great idea - already pretty planned out as well - Good job!
Danke Marie und Gruss in den Süden!
wooww, good idea voto. maybe you can plus more status flag, like : i'm hungry, Hang out, party, :D
Thank you very much! Yes, other statuses are possible. There are also some blank flags to write on whatever you like.
this idea really interesting and will really solve coworking space tipical problem! especially if the status flags have laaarger size!!!
I think the size depends also on the type of device people are using. Is it portable or not? The size for a big screen could be bigger as a flag for a laptop that you are carrying around. Let's see how this idea can develop further...
Simple and very straight forward. I think this idea have more to offer! Looking forward to new updates!
Let's see what comes in mind! I personaly like the simple card board version but i agree that there are further variations that could make sense.
Potsdam weiß noch wie's geht! ;)
Potsdam sagt Danke!
Really? Nice! ;)
really nice idea to solve one of the coworking problems - often the most simpelst things are the best!
Absolutly agree with you!
Thank you very much!
Eine relativ simpel zu realisierende Idee. Eine nützliche Idee - um Ruhe zu haben oder mit anderen ins Gespräch zu kommen. Ich bestelle hiermit einmal einen Satz Status-Flags. :)
Das Set Status-Flags kommt vielleicht in einer der nächsten Ausgaben der 3-6-0 ;) Wer weiß...
Danke für's kommentieren!
This idea looks very good because it is very simple!
only agree with the others :)
Wow, really great idea and very simple and realistic too. Looking forward to see more :)
minimalism and inteligence -great start
I like you idea, but I think it can also work on the internet. Like on jovoto. I think you should also focus on the" virtual working space". I had a similar idea with the start on the internet creative platform( jovoto or any other)., where the creatives can make their creative rooms and make a team with the others that can develop the aspects of their ideas that they can't. I would really like to see you develop your idea!
Great concept! It is all about communication. Love it.
simple and nice idea.
maybe digital (led?) status flags with flexible status? like "need a coffee-partner"
Great idea!! ;-)
So solls sein.
I'm curoius about your idea...show more please...:)
I like the orange flag much more! :D
I like your idea! Great stuff...
great idea :>
I like it, simple yet effective! :)
Good idea here!
gotta love the simplicity! flags could easily be bigger or even freestanding, I think
well, this is like the skype status, which doesn't work either.
Well, I have tried to keep the idea as simple as possible. However you don't get it. ;)
Hi! I like the idea of clipping something on the screen, and your chart style. but I think a status flag is superfluous.
You have the freedom to think what ever you want. At the same time i would suggest to rethink your voting habit. Believe me, if not, you won't have a good time here.
Hey.My voting habit is being sincere, I think that's perfect.The hardest part of designing is dealing with critics.They can help to make a product better. Don't worry, my opinion will not change the quality of your idea. ;-)
...And your comment won't neighter. The hardest part of criticism is to be constructive. What was your suggestion to improve this idea? I can't see it.
Very simple and smart idea. I love it..!!!
Yes simple, but effective! Sometimes less is more ;))
simple but great idea. like it!
Sounds really fun! :) Seams to be quite a cool concept and it's very feasible and no effort needed. Socially, it would create a good relationship between workers and will be a good environment for development of new ideas.
Very simple and functional idea!
this has to be the coolest idea here !! so much done with so little !! outstanding concept !! :D
I Agree with the guys above me! This simple thing can increase interaction. You just need a reason to start a conversation , and that conversation can lead to a better relationship between coworkers. Nice, simple idea, easy to understand in 5 seconds. Great!
so simple but so cool
Great idea! :]]
quite simple & clever idea, makes some stars, good luck!
GREAT WORK DEAR VOTO!!!
Congratulations! Really great idea!
BRILLIANT AS USUAL VOTO!!! YOUR SIMPLICITY MAKE YOU AN OUTSTANDING CREATIVE AND SMART MIND!!! I REALLY ADMIRE THE WAY YOU SEE SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO BIG TASK!!! HOPE THIS GETS IMPLEMENTED!!! CONGRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATS FOR YOUR CLIENTS CHOICE!!! YOUR REALLY DESERVE IT AND MUCH MORE!!! KLASSE AND PERFECT!!!
congratulations!! nice work :)

Die Idee das ganze über eine LED zu lösen steht auf Chart4 ;)
