Initially revealed at CES 2014 in January, the ClockOne is a one-of-a-kind wall clock which measures almost a meter wide but is only 5mm thin. It uses segmented E-ink displays to recreate on a large scale what an LED clock does on your nightstand:
Thanks to its use of E-ink screen tech, the ClockOne is visible from almost every angle, offering a wider viewing angle that anything short of the best LCD and LED screens (unless you're in the dark). And due to the low power requirements of E-ink screens, the ClockOne is powered by a single battery which is specced to run for up to a year. This saves owners from having to run an unsightly power cord, or replace the battery frequently.
This clock was supposed to go up for pre-order in September, but it popped up on Kickstarter today. Twelve24 is seeking to raise $200,000 in order to mass-produce their clock. Backers who contribute $500 or more can pre-order a ClockOne in any of 5 colors (white blue, orange, pink, or moss), and early bird backers also have the option of ordering a white ClockOne for only $400.
I haven't ordered one myself (that $400 is more than I can afford to spend on a clock) but a lot of people are. The campaign started today and it's already raised $20, 000 in a matter of hours.
