Winner of the red dot award: design concept, designer Kim Sung Min came up with an electric pin-up board with pins that light up when something needs to be acted upon.

"The idea is to make sure the right memos catch your attention. The drawing pin draws power from the board when it is pressed in. A spring-operated time-setting dial activates the light according to the user's settings. It also controls the flow of power. When the user sets a time, the electricity to that pin is cut off. When the set time arrives and the dial moves back into its original position, the electricity can flow again and the pin lights up."
