Vayu is a productivity supercharger for engineers. The end goal for the tool is to have a multipurpose tool with various tools such as task and note storage, task management, and a pomodoro study timer. As a computer engineering student at UIUC, having an organized optimized system is critical. I hope to bring that to others with vayu.
