Blub Uno Clock
Duncan Hellmers Wednesday 18 Mar 2015

Blub Uno is a desk clock designed by duncan Hellmers which can hold its own as an object of function when you need it and beauty when you don't.

Funded by a Kickstarter campaign, the Blub features individual glowing numbers, housed in a glass cylinder, and is a striking alternative to the common digital and analogue displays we’re all so used to seeing. To complement the retro feel of the display, the electronics are mounted in a sleek housing machined from solid aluminium, giving it a modern aesthetic which fits nicely in to any home or office setting. Its petite size makes it ideal for small spaces, yet the large display makes it readable from anywhere in larger rooms.

Although only having a single digit display, Blub Uno easily shows the time by displaying numbers one after the other. For example, 12:30pm would display as ‘1… 2… 3… 0’. This provides a very simple and natural way to read the time.

Blub Uno is powered via USB, so you can power it by plugging it into your computer or any USB wall charger or outlet. There is a remote control to choose all the settings, including time (12/24hr), date, temperature (C/F), alarm, backlighting colour and display mode (direct, fade or crossfade), or you can use the two buttons located on the back.
