Clock that projects time [New Straits Time (Malaysia)]
(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WE are well aware of the fact that smart watches may be the next big thing where wearable technology is concerned but here is another way of telling the time without having to splurge on a new timepiece.
The patent pending Clockety smartphone projection clock is not only a conversation piece but it also works in two different ways. All you have to do is physically tap it or have the Clockety run on a timer, and you're good to go. The first smartphone projection clock in the world, the Clockety is portable, smart and easy to use. It also comes with a complimentary iPhone app that lets you control it in any way you desire. Just make sure that it has a working battery, and you can then pair it up to your smartphone via WiFi or Bluetooth.
After snapping Clockety onto your smartphone, get the Clockety app up and running, and you can then fall asleep, confident that you will be awakened at the right time. The single replaceable battery can last for more than a year. It is said that the Clockety will be able to project time clearly on all standard ceiling heights. Hopefully this is one Kickstarter project that will get off the ground.
SHOWER AND SING
THIS rain showerhead from Shower Speaker will put a skip in your step every morning, as it sports integrated colour-changing LED lights as well as a removable Bluetooth speaker. In other words, you will be able to enjoy a visual presentation that will help you start the day in the right direction, while you sing your way through your morning ritual with your favourite band or singer backing you up.
The LED lights are not static, they change colour depending on the current water temperature. The rechargeable battery within the wireless Bluetooth speaker can last up to 15 hours of nonstop use.
LOOK MA, NO KEYS!
HAVING a good set of locks will make you feel safer in your home. But it may be difficult to remember which key goes with which padlock. Yale's new keyless smart locks cannot be picked and there are no keys to misplace.
The new keyless smart locks are easy to install and integrate into a smart home wireless network. You only have to remember a four- digit security code, and you're good to go. You also do not have to worry that your child would lose his/her key, and would not be able to enter the house after school.
In case of emergencies, you only have to provide a neighbour with a unique code and delete that code once their duty is done. There is a push button version that comes with a black push button keypad which will illuminate when touched, while a touchscreen model boasts a durable black acrylic capacitive touchscreen that illuminates when touched.
