Thanks to e-mail, phone calls, SMS, and the cat industrial complex on YouTube, there are are countless ways to ruin your focus when you’re trying to work.

According to research from the University of California at Irvine, it takes 23 minutes to get back on track following an interruption. Meanwhile, distractions may also dull your cognitive performance.

So what we all need are giant desktop buttons that turn the world off so we can concentrate for a change.

At least, that’s what the developers of MyFocus believe. It’s a button measuring 3.5 inches across that can block incoming messages on your computer and mobile devices.

The subject of an ambitious Kickstarter campaign for about $125,000, MyFocus also works in the real world: its LED glows red or green to show those around you when you’re busy or available.
