Simple Time Tracking

I wuv this minimal timepiece! The slender Evanescent clock was designed to compliment society’s linear understanding of the briefness as well as the permanence of time. As preset alarms approach the backlit clock grows increases in intensity. To appeal to the user’s senses, Evanescent offers both visual and audible cues inputed via it’s inconspicuous USB port, allowing the user to manipulate the alarm schedule while maintaining an uncluttered look.

  • Beautiful simple design that appeals to more senses.

    However, the necessity to have a separate device or computer install that manipulates the alarms is very limiting. I would suggest a simple set of controls recessed on the back with an LCD screen rather than externalizing this. This achieves the external simplicity, but encapsulates the control.

    Cheers,

    Hmm, I don't get it. Should we be able to tell time from having only one clock hand? Not to be mean or anything, I just don't understand what's going on.

    The clock is designed not to tell time minute to minute, but rather a moment in time. For example a deadline, the arm will start out ticking slowly and increase speed toward the conclusion. It can be set to start quickly and end in slow ticking toward the conclusion as well depending on the mood of the moment. It is really meant to be a constant reminder that you are in a moment rather than just simply telling time.

    Congrats Zach!
