A unique community location device has been launched by Kickstarter this week in the form of the Eta Clock, which allows families and groups to quickly see where members are currently spending their time without prying.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the unique Eta Clock which has been created by DC Creatives and is now available via Kickstarter with pledges from $350 for early bird backers.
The developers of Eta explain more about their new location based clock :
The Eta Clock isn’t your ordinary clock – it doesn’t tell time. Instead, it keeps you connected to those who matter most, exchanging time for location. The Eta Clock tells you where the people in your life spend their time, with each hand representing a person in your connection circle and each segment of the clock face corresponding to a destination. As the people in your life proceed throughout their day, the clock hands mimic their movements, traveling to and from destinations like “Work” and “Home.”
The Eta Clock wall-hanging device works in conjunction with our Eta Clock mobile app. Mobile devices broadcast their geolocation coordinates to our secure server, which acts simply as a proxy, relaying those coordinate to your at-home Eta Clock device. No need to stare at a tiny map on your phone or request an update, the Eta Clock is always waiting for new coordinates and displays the whereabouts of your friends and family as a piece of wall-hanging art.
In order to connect people to your Eta Clock device, friends and family can download our Eta Clock app, create an account and add locations in their mobile app. Your clock uses those locations to determine where your family and friends are located throughout their day.
