Hey, it’s like a smartwatch for your desk, or wall! But seriously, this hackable, real-time smart display lets you receive and act on notifications, tasks, workout timers, business metrics, emails, news and more! If they raise enough cash there will be color options, streaming radio, and even bigger displays.

The LaMetric comes in a plug-in and battery version which started at $89, but you can still get in on the action for about $119. LaMetric is the first standalone, customizable, hackable ticker that tracks key metrics and displays them in real-time. This unique clock can be set up to tell you the events on your calendar for the day, the temperature or even to count down the days until your new baby is born. LaMetric eliminates the need to check multiple apps or news sites for the information you need. Instead, you receive everything at a glance, all in one place, in real-time. The possibilities are endless.

Perfect for home or business, LaMetric is customizable through its app that allows you to combine icons, scrolling text, metrics and changes, goals, days, trends and sounds. Have a look. Back it. Grab one!
