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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
