We have smart cars, smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S5, and in certain places, smart homes with the right kind of hardware wired all over the place. Why not ensure that there are also smart displays to complete the entire shebang, to make sure that us humans will be able to usher in a new era of progressive evolution? Well, here is the LaMetric smart ticker that might just be the first step in the right direction, being a hackable smart display which is capable of showing off the current time, news headlines, deadlines, temperature and any other metric required for your home or business, and all that it takes to kick off an action would be using a simple click of a button.
The LaMetric smart ticker is also known as a smart clock, depending on how you look at it, where it launches on Kickstarter to be the first standalone, customizable, hackable ticker which is capable of tracking key metrics while showing them off in real-time. This is a uniquely retro clock which can be set up to inform you of events on your calendar for the day, in addition to the likes of the current temperature or perhaps even to count down the days until your wife will give birth. The LaMetric does away with the need to check on multiple apps or news sites for the information that you require, but instead, you will be on the receiving end of everything at a glance, all in one place, in real-time. In a nutshell, the possibilities happen to be endless!
It is ideal for both home and business settings, since the LaMetric is highly customizable where you can merge icons, scrolling text, metrics and changes, goals, days, trends and sounds. Not only that, the LaMetric will play nice with the IFTTT, where it can depict just about any kind of information that you require from the recipes you create on that platform. Alternatively, you can opt to integrate LaMetric with several home automation systems, including SmartThings, WigWag or Ninja Blocks.
A plug-in LaMetric can be yours for just $89 at Super Early Bird Level, while it will cost $119 at Early Bird Level, with a $129 price tag for the Kickstarter Edition Level. Boasting of a Lithium-Ion, rechargeable battery, this particular campaign will last until August 1st.
