Digital black-and-white clock is a milestone in minimalism
It is sometimes so frustrating to see a thing of beauty locked up inaccessibly with the tag "prototype". Well, life's not always fair now, is it? So it is with this beauty called the "black-and-white" digital clock from Kibardindesign. And designer Vadim Kibardin has created a totally new concept of a digital clock with this one.
The "clock" is actually a collection of four translucent white figures each of which can display a numeral from 0-9, can be independently controlled, and is powered by a self-contained power supply. The figures are made up of a polycarbonate material with the luminous part being an Organic Light- Emitting Diode (OLED). The figures are white in darkness and black at daytime. They can be fixed to any surface, to an alignment of your choice, and voila - you can proudly show off the most elegant clock in the neighborhood. Well, not quite. Remember us mentioning earlier that it is still a prototype? Boo-hoo.
