Pratt x areaware LED cube timer
The LED Cube Timer is a new way to keep time. Each sandblasted acrylic cube is loaded with two bright RGB LEDs and uses a spring-loaded magnet connection system to hold it snugly to its neighbor. Simply choose the number of cubes corresponding to the time you’d like to keep, attach them together and watch as the light moves through the stack over time, visually indicating how long has passed.
This project was originally part of a design competition for the company Areaware based out of Brooklyn, NY. The design prompt was "time", create a product or family of products that allows a new, different experience of time. The final timer was shown at Design Wanted show in Industry City in May 2015.
