The idea of using a good old fashioned Edison style filament radio valve for a modern clock might initially sound like madness, but just take a look at the Blub Uno and you will change your mind. The designers have managed to combine this old style technology with ultra modern design using machined aluminium, glass and bamboo materials, plus it’s powered via a USB connection making it ideal for the office just plug into the computer to bring it alive. Of course, there are plugs with USB ports available, so this clock can be used just about anywhere you like.
The Blub Uno comes in three styles Aluminium with Bamboo, plain Aluminium and there is a limited edition Black model. Finally there is the question of the how do you tell the time with just one digit? Well the display works in a series of four, making 0 – 8 – 3 – 0 equal to 08.30, so it’s quite simple to read despite just showing one number at a time. This is a classic combo of new and tech brought together into one cool device. The Blub Uno should be launching later on this year, but they can be pre ordered now with prices starting from around $300.
