through kickstarter, studio smart atoms introduces ‘LaMetric’, a programmable smart display for the internet of things. the connected device is capable of telling the time, weather and warnings, office meeting information, email and social notifications with subject lines, crossfit timing and fitness goals, to-do lists, stock quotes and much more. pulling information from rss feeds online, ‘lametric’ is also capable of tracking website visitors, conversions and other metrics. for instance, the pixel-based screen can help small businesses grow by engaging with passersby, displaying real-time information such as number of facebook fans, or twitter followers. ‘nike+ fuelband was a huge inspiration at the LaMetric concept stage,’ tells smart atoms to designboom. ‘we wanted to build a screen that looked like was part of the black case when the device was switched off, and when switched on clearly projected the screen across a large physical space with sharp bright square pixels.’

  • This is cool! I like it.

  • Didn’t see much use for it, until they explained it’ll tell me when my husband leaves work so that I can have dinner on the table when he gets home…

  • they’re 2/3 of the way to goal w/ 44 days left – this should shove them over the top

  • This is surely a novelty with very limited usefulness. Do the creators expect the user to mobilise all the advanced technology or the web, your phone and your dog collar just to read a one-word summery off a 10×50 display?

    Some advert though; I thought we would have landed on the moon by the end.
