The Story Clock by Flyte is a levitating timepiece that hit Kickstarter earlier this week to wild success. In fact, after just a few days it has raised nearly $239,000, which is just shy of three times its initial goal. A metal ball seemingly floats above a handcrafted piece wood, denoting the title through the day. Additionally, there is an embedded digital clock in the center that communicates information. You’ll have to watch the video for yourself to truly see how mesmerizing the Story Clock is.
There are three modes that are controlled by your smartphone, each of which conveys different information on the display. Journey mode is a countdown towards a specific date, with the ball arriving at the 12 o’clock hour at that time. Clock mode provides a traditional hour/minute experience while timer mode can be set for short-term events. Pledges currently start at $399 with Ash or Walnut models available. If all goes to plan, the Story Clock will ship in November.
STORY is more than just a clock; it’s a unique way to visualize time. Customize its orbit via a mobile app or manually. Set it to one minute or one year, its up to you. An intricate dance of magnetic magic guides the chrome sphere while it moves around its orbit. Set a future date and STORY will travel one full orbit until you reach your destination. Starting at the 12 O’Clock position, STORY will complete one full orbit at the interval of your choice.A special moment in life deserves its own way of telling its story as it unfolds. A new home, a new member in the family, a marathon, the most anticipated vacation to travel the world.
