Say goodbye to spreadsheets; touch the button instead

January 6, 2016 |

Like all great inventions, MYLE: Wearable Thought Catcher was born out of necessity.

“I tried to use a small tape recorder throughout the day to keep track of everything that was going on, from my schedule to notes to great ideas,” said Pavel Bondarev, founder and CEO of MYLE Electronics. “It took too much time to transcribe at the end of the day. I soon gave it up.”

MYLE is a tiny wearable button, roughly the size of a loonie. With one tap, it records any thought, idea, note or reminder. It’s capable of storing 2,000 notes and the battery lasts for a week. But the magic happens when it gets within Bluetooth range of your smartphone or computer. All notes are synced, converted to text and assigned to applications. Meetings are added to calendars. Work hours are logged. You can even post to social media.

The product took a giant leap forward thanks to a successful crowd-funding campaign this summer that netted 200 per cent of its original target.

Bondarev said while the device can help everyone from students to soccer moms, the company is focusing on mobile employees. MYLE can replace time sheets and track progress with a single tap. Each note includes audio, text, time and GPS details.

“Imagine if you’re inspecting pipelines and you have to stop every 50 metres to make notes. This keeps track of where, when and how you’ve spent that time,” he said.

Bondarev is thrilled to be a part the ICT West family.

“We’re already connecting with many companies,” he said. “We’re a small company, so being part of something larger certainly is a big benefits for us.”

MYLE is one of the ICT West team of delegate companies that attended CES held in Las Vegas in January 2016. Bondarev built momentum for the inaugural sales launch of MYLE, planned for the second quarter of 2016. The tapable device will retail for $149.
