With phones and most electronics keeping the time now, isn’t it time the clock got a facelift, literally?

With phones and most electronics keeping the time now, isn’t it time the clock got a facelift, literally? Most things in today’s world serve more than one feature, if everyone needs one, shouldn’t clocks be good for more than one thing too?

Recently, I’ve seen social media buzzing about the new Coolest Clock Campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo (See the link here if you haven’t seen it yet https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/coolest-clock-probably-the-coolest-clock-ever/). After seeing it, I thought wow that’s amazing! The campaign describes the clock as a projection clock that can be personalized to display a variety of clock faces and information. Simply plug it into an outlet, mount it on the wall, and personalize all of the display information to your lifestyle. With the spread of information, you deserve to see the weather, time, social media updates, breaking news, or reminders. This got me thinking, the Coolest Clock could be incredibly useful in my life because by showing a live map indicator of where I am, my wife could see when I am on my way home while doing other things. I would never have to reheat dinner again.

After looking into how it works, the Coolest Clock is controlled by your smartphone and powered by Rocket Science, Magic, and Love. With the smartphone capabilities, you can update things on the go and share information with loved ones at home. The projection technology lifts the limits off traditional devices. With almost every feature being fully customizable, the Coolest Clock can find its way into every home.

I desperately wanted to keep up with this campaign. Check out the Facebook page if you have time, they will post live updates directly to you! www.facebook.com/coolestclock

It is best to see this thing in action; here is the fun YouTube video “displaying” all the cool features http://youtu.be/lqBoydmdiuE. It’s incredible to see how fast this clock is gaining popularity. After doing more research I have seen them featured in articles on Yahoo Finance, online tech blogs, and even the local ABC Detroit affiliate has run a story about this clock.

If you like this idea, I guarantee you will like some other of the cool products found on www.bigheadedgeek.com. Even if you can’t donate or line yourself up to purchase one now, you can still help the founders out and even get yourself in the running to win one through the referral contest. Simply share the campaign on your Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ page to be entered into the running for the chance to win one while they’re offering free international shipping to the winner.

We live in a dynamic, digital world, yet clocks have yet to catch up– until now.

Out of Austria, via a super successful indiegogo campaign, comes My Coolest Clock (www.mycoolestclock.com) which takes the idea of a clock to a whole new level.

Imagine being able to customize your clock on the wall, changing its shape, color, and the specific info it shares– that’s what the Coolest Clock allows you to do. It projects the clock image onto the wall just like something you’d see in a movie about “life in the future.” The clock image can include news headlines, temperature readings, graphics, Facebook/Twitter feeds and more. It’s truly unique and I’d like one for my house, for sure.

I’m going to enter their referral contest on Facebook to win one and you should too! –Mark Weber, markwebermusicblog.com

Coolest Clock, ever!

Coolest Clock

– Simply a beautiful and unique projection clock that can be personalized to display a variety of clock faces and information.

Why do we all still have the same clocks with the same boring faces like nothing happened since the earliest sun clocks were created centuries ago?

Clocks with just the numbers & hands just like our grandmothers had?

 

No, of course everything DOES NOT have to be smart or cool but…….

Introducing the Coolest Clock:

A highly versatile projection clock that is designed to project a lot more than time:

A one-of-a kind, smart and multi-purpose device that lets you view a variety of information along with the time via colorful, bright and attractive ‘faces’.

The secret is: Rocket Science, Magic and Love.

Smart faces that can be personalized to display the weather, Facebook status, tweets from your friends, your family`s location on the map, photos, breaking news from your favorite channels, sports scores, and SIMPLY; more.

A compact and stylish device that can be mounted on the wall and plugged in to a power supply.The clock is controlled by a smartphone app so you can control the features and decide on what information to display from your smartphone or the web.

Yeah! We’re Featured!


Users or clock owners can log in to their smartphone app and personalize the clock’s projection in many ways. They can choose from several attractive clock faces, and decide on what information should be displayed on the clock face.

This is especially useful to send updates from your smartphone to anyone at home who can then view the information on the clock face, such as your location, the song you are listening to, your latest photos, and many other such personal information to stay connected even when you are on the move.

– this is the same guy with the belly.
you see, with the coolest clock there is no belly and much love.

Cool Features:

Unique and attractive clock ‘faces’:

There are a variety of cool clock ‘faces’ for you to choose from, depending on your mood, your style or even just to match the room’s décor:

Customizable clock faces: Several face elements are available which can be easily arranged by the users via an app, or mobile even they are traveling in a taxi, in another city, or out of the country, from just about anywhere in the world.

Wall projection: Coolest Clock projects the date, time and other information on to the wall, so that you can view it even from across the room. Whether you are viewing the clock face at night or from a distance, you can still see the time and the rest of the clock face without having to turn on the lights or reach for your glasses.

Adjustable projection: With the smartphone app, you can adjust the size and brightness of the projection, so you can display the time in the most comfortable viewing format.

Live location indicator: Coolest Clock’s unique feature allows the owner (with the smartphone app paired with the clock) to show his or her position on the map. For example, if he is driving back home, he could show his position on the map live, to inform his wife at home. Even when he is away in another country, he might show his position on the map, or send photos to be shown on the clock`s face (projection).

Media updates:The users would be able to show their Facebook status, latest tweets, or even the latest news from different sources (CNN, ESPN, etc.). These can be organized also as “update intervals” and show updated content at regular intervals.

Quotes: Use your clock to motivate or inspire you with your favorite quotes! Users can display their favorite quotes, or ‘quotes of the day’ on the clock face.

Weather updates: Check the day’s weather and also week’s weather outlook on your clock face.

Stay on schedule:The clock face can display your ‘to-do’ list or your daily planner/schedule. So, every time you look at the time, you can check whether you are on track with your schedule or planned activities.

Energy saver: The Coolest Clock would have a beacon (a low energy bluetooth chip), inside the clock device which can be paired with the user’s smartphone, so that the clock could turn on or off, or show the content only when he or she is near or in the same room. This can help save energy, and turn off the clock projection or face where no one is around to view it.

Adjustable Clock Skins: You can adjust the clock faces and/or clock face elements, like switching clock hands showing from digital to analog time if you prefe or playing with other elements on (and of) the “face”.

Automatic Daylight Savings Time adjustment:

Multiple Time Zones:

Nothing close to the conventional standards of a wall clock.

My Coolest Clock – The Wall Clock of the Future

How often do you come across an innovative product that has changed your entire lifestyle? The last time something changed my life so dramatically was when I bought a smart phone. Started taking notes on my phone, booked cabs through the phone, went shopping on mobile and what not. My phone became the center of my universe. I fear something like that would happen again in my life. But this time, it will be for the good.

I recently happened to come across a very innovative, a very creative wall clock while surfing the net. At the very first look, I couldn’t figure out what it was. It just looked like a designer wall hanging. Nothing close to the conventional standards of a wall clock. But then I saw a video demonstrating what it is and how does it work. I was amazed! I was absolutely speechless. It was a wall clock that hardly resembled what we usually have at our homes. Not by a million miles. The moment I understood it’s a wall clock, I realized that this thing was made for the future.

So, now what? I went ahead and ordered one for myself. And believe you me, that’s one of the best decisions I’ve taken in a long time. After it’s arrival, my life has completely changed, in a good way of course. Don’t get me wrong. When I say ‘clock’, I don’t just mean a clock. It does everything for you. You can operate it with your smart phone lying on your bed, read your tweets daily, check your Facebook updates, set reminders, change themes and colors to match your interiors and what not. I can just put my phone away and forget about it. This device does every basic thing that you need your phone to do. And imagine all this without any danger of getting exposed to too much radiation. Phew! This device has all the good in the world written over it.

This is one of the best things I’ve purchased in a long time. It has made my life so much easier. And now I’m seriously planning to gift one to my girlfriend as well. The happiness on her face after seeing this would be priceless.

I will definitely recommend this product to everyone I love. Absolute value for money.
