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.

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.

#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 is a simple yet innovative idea to make our lives more productive and easy

Coolest clock is a simple yet innovative idea to make our lives more productive and easy. The Idea which was brought to the indigogo’s crowd funding platform on 9th feb, 2015 received an overwhelming response from all over the world, helping it to reach its $20,000 goal easily. At the time of writing, it has been funded to the extent of $124,415 which is 622% of its original goal. This tremendous response is evident of the fact of how useful this gadget people perceive to be for themselves.

The coolest clock has some pretty cool features you could not expect from a clock before. It uses an inbuilt projector to project light on the wall below. With the wall as its canvas, the projections are no less than an art work. This can be said given the beautiful way the clock displays information like facebook and twitter updates, Live location on the map, news from your favourite channels and much more. One can customise the look of the clock to his or her liking. To take the experience of the smart clock to the next level, an app has been developed which gives you complete control over the clock’s functions like the clock’s shape and the information to be displayed.

Another Amazing thing about the clock is that it does waste precious power resources as you would expect. With a Bluetooth chip present, the clock displays information only when someone’s around, otherwise remains off. It is because of inventions like this that the world is becoming a more connected and secure place to live and we hope the coolest clock makes its way to every home very soon. Not only does it add elegance to one’s home but also make it a smarter home.

You can visit their cool website – http://www.mycoolestclock.com/ to know more about the project. Here is a link to their indigogo campaign, if you are interested in contributing to this superb product’s funding. If just another $25000 are crowd sourced then the company claims to add another very useful and desirable feature – speakers. You can imagine how much more cooler the coolest clock will become if they are able to surpass the $150000 milestone. Lets wish them luck !!

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:

Project New World : Interactive Fiction First Wave

First truly global, multicultural and interactive post-apocalyptic comic and novel

Project New World is a post-apocalyptic fictional universe that will unfold in different stages using unique transmedia storytelling elements. These will include novels, comic books/graphic novels, short films and website events.

We have 9 native writers from 8 different countries who will write their own countries’ stories. Readers can thus get privileged glimpses into the various cultures and characters around the globe. All of these stories will be unique but connected to each other within the framework of a main master plot.

Interactive Fiction – Games meets Novels(Graphic Novels)In this fictional universe readers and community will play a really important role. Because your decisions will shape the world and you will decide the future of the world.

Q:How will it work?

This won’t be “Choose your adventure” type pre-scripted interactive stories. In Project New World community can actively contribute to the storyline. There will be events throughout the month in our webpage, where you can vote for the direction of the plot. Those will not be simple pools but result with important changes in the story. The outcomes will directly shape the Project New World, since writers & illustrators will base their stories on these events’ results.

For example, a group of survivors in Rostov, Russia, finds an A-bomb. While moving the bomb, they are attacked by bandits. At this point, community can vote who gets away with the bomb, or whether it would explode during the fight, erasing the city from the map. In the next event, it could be about what they are doing with the bomb. While such interaction will make this a global experience, it could move the story away from predictability.

Q: What makes this project so unique?

This is the first truly global epic fiction ever. It is multi- and transmedia: there will be novels, comic book/graphic novels, illustrations, website events and short films. With these various storytelling techniques, we will create a new world from the perspective of different countries, cultures, characters, wherein you will find crossover events—organic, global, and truly immersive storytelling.

The countries in which these stories will be told are as followed;

  1. Brazil
  2. France
  3. India
  4. Japan
  5. Russia
  6. Turkey
  7. The United Kingdom
  8. The United States of America

(more countries will be added later. 9th country will be Australia)
