Crowdsourcing Mornings: Prompt: The Anti-Watch


This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

Prompt: The Anti-Watch is a timepiece with no numbers, hour, or second hands. There is no screen or connection to WiFi or Bluetooth. The orientation doesn’t matter and the time zone is irrelevant. Its minimal design can be worn on your wrist, kept in your pocket, or held comfortably in your hand. It won’t push you notifications, but will silently give the time to you when you tap on the face.

The timepiece itself is strikingly simple, beautiful, and modern, made of high quality PVD coated stainless steel and polished glass. Engineered to be no larger than a small comfort stone or serenity coin, it is smooth to the touch and substantial in weight and quality.

We spent years refining the product. Early iterations of the tactile timepiece went to lengths to tell you the precise time, right down to the hour and minute. But since most meetings start at the top of the hour or halfway past the hour, we ultimately realized that staying prompt only required a timepiece to convey “four moments in time” – right before or after the top of hour, and right before or after the half-hour.

Touching the smooth concave glass lens triggers between 1 and 4 vibrations to represent those “four moments in time”: where 1 vibration means you’re within the first 15 minutes in the hour, 2 vibrations for the second 15 minutes in the hour, 3 vibrations for the third, and 4 vibrations for the last 15 minutes in the hour.

As of March 19th, this project has raised $35,000 of their $30,000 goal. This project has 6 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $205, you will get one timepeace.  For a pledge of $389, you will get two timepeaces.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/beprompt/prompt-the-anti-watch?
