Press for Time: Beautifully Minimalist Wireless OLED Clock

Wall clocks range from the mundane to the outright weird, but this one is in a whole new category. It’s part 80s digital watch, part modern wireless convenience, and all stylish and customizable. The product concept from Kibardin Design is smart, strong, energy-efficient, and might soon be available for purchase.

The digits can be hung on the wall in any way you please. You set the time just by pressing the individual panels on the numbers. The pieces are made from a polycarbonate that’s durable, light and inexpensive, so you don’t have to worry about the time clattering down at your feet or breaking the bank. Each OLED component has its own power source and is completely wireless, keeping your minimalist space free of clutter.

Maybe best of all, the digits are able to sense ambient light. When it’s light in the room, the digits glow dark. When it’s dark in the room, they emit a bright white. This simple color-changing ability makes it easy to see the time no matter when you look. Besides being a convenient way to keep track of time, these minimalist digits are the perfect way to spruce up your space without adding any bulk or taking up any floor space.
