If you are looking for a larger than life clock for your home or office workspace you might be interested in a new design by Twelve24 called the ClockONE which is constructed using the world’s largest die-cut E-Ink display.
The ClockONE measures 1m in size and has been designed to provide users with an ultra-thin clock that has been inspired by E-Ink display technology. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action and learn more.
“At one meter long and 5mm thin, the solid aluminum rear housing is a challenging part to die-cast. We have designed the part to meet industry standard specifications and tolerances, and have reviewed it in detail with multiple vendors, which gives us the confidence this can be manufactured, however this will continue to be a risk until we’ve successfully produced high quality parts off-tool.
We will need to be diligent to insure that every component of ClockONE is of the highest quality and execution. We will be sourcing parts from a number of vendors therefore our team is prepared to go through multiple review cycles with each vendor to ensure all parts and final product meet our high expectations.
There is a lot of color science that goes into marrying colored acrylic with E Ink technology. We’re currently in discussions with potential vendors who can produce custom sheets of colored acrylic however we have not qualified a vendor yet.”
The ClockONE project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise a massive $200,000 in pledges to make the jump into manufacture. So if you think ClockONE is something your workspace or home could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help ClockONE become a reality, with pledges starting from $100 via the link below.
