Czech studio Kibardindesign have created a 3D version of a digital clock face.
The White & White Clock comprises four seven-segment display digits, like those on an LCD screen, mounted across a central control panel.
A sensor adjusts the brightness of the LED digits depending on the intensity of the light around them, so the time glows brightly to stand out in a sunny spot but less intensely when the lights are dimmed at bed time.
The clock can be used freestanding or mounted on a wall.
We recently featured a digital clock based on a basketball scoreboard.
Here's a description from the designers:
The White & White Clock designed by Vadim Kibardin is a modern 3D interpretation of the traditional digital clock.
Digital wall/desk white LED clock with white frame digits. Nothing else, simply time. White & White Clock is a clock with an alarm and time display mode 24 hour. In dark hours the light sensitive sensor changes the brightness of the digits to a less intense white. The power supply is conducted through a general mains-operated adaptor that suits any kinds of sockets.
A publication of the Black & White clock design preceded the appearance of the White & White clock. The Black & White clock aroused a huge interest in the public. We decided to postpone the batch production of the Black & White modification after detailed research of the production prototypes and to concentrate on the new model White & White.
During the working process the ideal technical and constructive solutions were found. They comply with all the functional and esthetic requirements and make this model available for mainstream customers.
