So we all know Nooka, yes? They make those plastic watches with the LCD displays that are really hard to read but look cool. We’re written about them before here
, and here
, and even here
. Having created a nice little niche for themselves, the New York-based company is now looking to upscale its production process and release a series of wall clocks. Thing is – they need money. (Your money.)
Like a number of other indie start-ups, Nooka has taken their fundraising directly to the public. The basic deal is they need $40 thousand to create their wall clocks and they’d like fans to throw some money in their direction. Donations start at $5 and go all the way up to $10K – which will buy you a seat on the company board for six months. Depending on how much you throw their way they’ll reward you with products; $500 gets you a clock.
The actual wall clocks they have in mind are classic Nooka designs: all LCD displays, long columns and bold colours. Just the thing for your graphic design company’s minimalist office in a relevant location. Right?
Oh yeah, company founder Matthew Waldman has made a little video to help sell the concept – um, he probably shouldn’t have. Seriously, we like Nooka, but we like the company a little less each time we watch this video.
