It’s always a bummer when a pretty cool Kickstarter project fails to reach its goal–especially when it gets super close to its goal! Here’s a project that we missed but we’re very much into: AboutFaceClock. The project is a designy clock intended to be more versatile than your normal clock as it plays with the form of the time device, allowing you to do whatever you want with it.
The clock comes from Santa Monica based architect and product designer Mark Ejnes. It’s a fairly simple design that has circular and rectangular faced clocks placed atop of lightning bolt bodies that allow for you to hang them however you like. The hanging system works on many surfaces because of the “puck+hangar” mounting unit he made that allows you to place the clock’s many slits onto it as you like, allowing for many different hanging styles. The clock comes in sleek powder-coated steel in addition to cardboard so you could basically print whatever you wanted on the clock (Ejnes has a few patterns made from anime characters to abstract shapes).
It sucks the clock didn’t make the money it needed to get made during its Kickstarter campaign–but we’re sure Ejnes is going to get it made one way or another since its a simple, novel concept. Get lots more information on it from the Kickstarter page and keep up with the project on their website.
