LaMetric Time Smart Clock is a Kickstarter project by Smart Atoms that raised $370,000 back in August 2014. It’s described as a Smart Clock but it’s really a connected LED display that can be used to show a wide range of information from the internet or other connected devices.
One of the problems with the Internet of Things and smart home devices is that the only way to see information about what’s going on is via your phone or television. However, you don’t want to leave your TV on all the time, and you don’t want to have to keep taking your phone out of your pocket every few minutes. If only there was a connected, always on display that could show you essential information at a glance.
This is the problem that Smart Atoms is aiming to solve with their LaMetric Time Smart Clock. Calling it a Smart Clock seems to be rather underselling it though. LaMetric Time is a black rectangular box about the length of a DVD case. Lurking inside are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios for external connectivity. On the top is has 3 buttons, 2 directional and one selection. On the left side it has a power button and 3.5mm auxiliary sound input jack as well as a speaker. On the right side it has volume up and down buttons as well as another speaker. On the back it has a power jack as well as a micro USB socket. On the front of the device there appears to be nothing to see; that is until you power on the device.
