You Can Tell The Time Of 24 Cities Just By Rolling This World Clock

To know the time of different countries is as easy as firing up the browser and Google it, but if you are more of style-conscious person or simply want a quick answer, then we believe that this 11+ World Clock designed by cloudandco might just tickle your fancy. Sticking the design ethos of creating valuable experience and timeless design, the World Clock takes on a minimalist approach, featuring a single tone look with embossed time scale on the clock face and on the peripheral, debossed with the name of the 24 cities.

To tell the time of other cities, all you have to do is roll the clock to the desire city marked on the side of the clock. Upon releasing the clock, it will immediately transition back to the local time and that’s all there is to it. Rolling. It is so simple that the 11+ World Clock could very well be the most simple and quickest world time clock ever conceived.

This roll-to-tell-time feature is made possible by a clever rolling mechanism and independently working hands that are kept from rotating with the rest of the clock by counterweights incorporated at the bottom of the clock. In this way, when the clock is rolled, only the clock face moves (as in rotates) thereby revealing the time of the chosen location. we love the idea of having less is more, except that the 11+ World Clock by cloudandco isn’t really less, it just has a brilliant design that conceals the fact that it is more than a mere cylindrical clock.

The 11+ World Clock by cloudandco comes in three colorways: midnight blue, modern grey and orange passion (our favorite. no prize for guessing why) and it can be yours for 49 bucks. Keep going for a video to see the World Clock in action.

Cpulse Case Wants To Add Light Show To Your Android Phone With 128 Multicolored Leds

There are smartphone protective cases and there are cases that offer to do more than just protection. i believe we have seen quite a bit of the latter, including multi-tool cases, case rigged with camera controllers and even one that adds a second e-ink display to your device. Now, you can add lights to the list. The cPulse case by Codlight is not just any lights; it is a protective case pimped out with a bunch of multi-color RGB LEDs – 128 of them, to be exact.

The odd thing is, this ‘protective case’, though sleek, will take over your device’s display and with a help of a companion app, allows you to dish out some cool light show. Apart from that, you can also customized cPulse to display notifications such as those from Facebook, Twitter, or perhaps, use it as an alarm clock function. You can even use the LEDs for photography in lowlight conditions too.

The accessory consists of two parts: the a slide-in case and the LED-ridden panel which is hinged to the slide-in case that allows the panel to be tilted and rotated for say, when leaving it on a table as an ambience light or such (imagine a camcorder with a flip out display, yea, it looks and works something of sort). One thing to note is, this light case has no battery to call its own. Its edge-to-edge LED lights will need to piggy back on your device’s battery, which is a big no-no for today’s juice-deprived handsets, but according to its creator, those LEDs are ultra-low power consumption items and would accounts for 7% of your handset’s total battery capacity. Well, a usage is a usage, no matter what, which might be a turn-off factor unless you one hardcore light show lover.

Of course, there are a whole lot of other use for this accessory, but as noted, it will be at the expense of your smartphone’s battery which is kind of a taboo to many smartphone users. however, if you are undaunted by this fact and embraces the whole light movement thing, you can head on down to the product’s Kickstarter campaign to show your love by pledging $89 or more and be rewarded with one such case if the project hits or goes beyond its rather lofty funding goal of $350,000. Check out a product video to see the cPulse case in action. oh, there is one more thing (or maybe two). cPulse case by Codlight is only compatible with devices on Android 4.4 and as of now, is available to suit LG G3, HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5.
