For those artistic types who don’t mind the confines that come with being reminded of the time, here is a unique piece of functional art that not only tracks the time, but also the date. One Time Calendar Clock incorporates the colors of the beloved rainbow into the seasons of the year as they connect to the months. Besides the hardcopy version that hangs on the wall, there is also a computer screensaver version. There are plans in the works to develop a computer version that actually keeps track of appointments, and a one time app. It would seem that with some additional effort, this could be made into something that is renewable. Even so, it seems that this product will have some appeal to those who appreciate art, especially art deco. This campaign seeks to raise £5,000 (~$8,000 USD) by November 2014. Early bird backers get a fully assembled wall clock for £49 (~$83 USD) with an expected delivery of January 2015.

Belts are one of those accessories that tempt many to want just one more — especially if there’s a good sale happening. The Belt Organizer offers a storage unit that allows for men’s and women’s belts to be stored rolled up, and the unit itself can either sit on a dresser or be hung on the wall like a piece of functional art. The units are also stackable. This item seems like a rather smart storage solution, and is available to early bird backers for $19. Its expected delivery is November 2014.
Don’t like how it looks right now? Just wait a minute. It’ll change. That’s the premise of The 720 Watch. The face of the watch changes every minute…literally! Why 720? Because there are 720 minutes in a 12 hour day, and 720 photographed watch faces that rotate through the 1” x 1” illuminated color screen. The watch is battery operated and can be recharged via the included USB cord. Though it’s not a smart watch, it should keep you amused for a couple of days at least. For $45, backers get one product and an expected delivery of September 2014.
