Computers and handsets provide you with so much information at your fingertips, but the Nimbus by Quirky doesn't even require you to search for it. The handy household device helps you to keep track of a handful of facts that are relevant to your daily life, enabling you to glance and get on with things.
Invented by Ryan Pendleton, the gadget looks like four little joined clocks that are actually digitally labeled barometers. Each one can be programmed to display information about things like the traffic, the weather, the number of emails in your inbox and, of course, the time. Synced with a smartphone app, the Nimbus can act as an alarm clock and send all of your environmental and social media reports in realtime.
