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.

It’s 2015, why isn’t there a new, cool clock on the market?

Speaker #1: It’s 2015, why isn’t there a new, cool clock on the market?

Speaker #2: You haven’t heard?

#1: Heard what?

#2: What everyone is talking about, The Coolest Clock.

#1: I bet it’s nothing special.

#2: No it is really cool! It’s different than any other clock because it is connected to your smartphone by an app. It doesn’t just tell time, you can also check your Twitter or Facebook.

#1: Well now you have my attention

#2: You can customize the clock face to match your personality or room décor.

#1: That’s okay but I need something more. Like keeping track of my daily agenda.

#2: It can do that too! This clock has virtually everything; it even has an energy saving option to shut down when no one is in the room.

#1: This sounds like The Coolest Clock!

#2: That’s because it is!

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:

hurry about GRIFFIN EMBLEM WATCH (the current #1 on Indiegogo)

Here we go with the current #1 of Indiegogo.. a true beauty..

It`s a 21 Jewels watch, and what does that mean is coming from Yahoo Answers:

Reducing friction is an extremely important goal in watchmaking. Jewels have two important properties that help reduce friction. First, they can be made to be very smooth, and therefore they let the metal parts slide easily. Secondly, they are very hard and therefore don’t wear down very quickly. The gears in a watch are carefully designed so that the teeth roll on each other, rather than sliding. If the axle of a gear wears away the hole that it sit in, the gear will shift. That means the teeth will no longer roll on each other and therefore friction will be increased. ” (Thanks to the contributor)

We are just amazed with the quality of work and design.. See what they say in their campaign page and don`t miss the special early bird offers:

GRIFFIN EMBLEM will provide you with top quality watches.
