PLAN-NET is a table clock, but it's quite unlike many others out there. The clock is designed to sync with a user's Google Calendar, but rather than simply displaying an upcoming schedule, the artful clock reinterprets this data into a moving space-inspired visual that resembles the liquid bubbles inside a lava lamp. As a result, this table clock is designed to change a person's response from looking at a full upcoming schedule from stress-related to soothing.

Taking inspiration from PLAN-NET, data that's comparable to what can be extracted from a Google Calendar could be used in a number of similar IoT applications.

Alongside the PLAN-NET prototype, HACKist's SXSW booth will also feature a total of six creative IoT ideas, including the INUPATHY dog collar, the HELLO WORLD! table, TREK TRACK, POSTIE and the Dig-Log app. Stats for Dynamic Data-Driven Clocks Trending: This Quarter & Warm
