Currently approaching the end of a successful Indiegogo campaign, the Coolest Clock is an innovative, entirely customizable smartphone-controlled projection wall clock. With a sleek design that makes it appear similar to a simple bedside reading lamp, the Coolest Clock is like a personalized digital projection of a smartphone dashboard, helping individuals stay organized, informed and on time. Customization options allow users to display breaking news from favorite sources, tweets or Facebook statuses from friends, sports tickers, a family member's location and more.

Able to integrate updates from social media networks as well as pertinent information like weather updates and notes from your daily planner, the Coolest Clock is energy efficient and can streamline communication within a household through its unique live location indicator function, which presents the location of the smartphone user on a live map within the projection at home, alerting those at home of their position.

The Clock also boasts a clock face that can be curated and customized remotely from the user's smartphone, with dozens of shapes and arrangements that can be selected to reflect a user's mood or a room's decor. Beyond these curation options, there is also the choice to display more personal information so that it can be easily communicated to parties at home, such as your latest photos, what song you are listening to and shared calendar reminders to keep the whole team on track.

The Coolest Clock is a clever convergence of several movements within the tech industry, like the digitizing of the more mindless everyday tasks and the incorporation of smart design to make daily life run more smoothly.
