Flyte knows a thing of two about floating objects. This time they’re adding a mesmerizing twist to the clock. The Flyte Story Levitating Timepiece tells time by suspending a chrome sphere above a clean, unmarred wooden base seemingly magically, and does this in either horizontal or vertical (wall-mounted) orientations. Set it as a clock and the sphere represents the hour hand, making its way around every 12 hours. It’ll also function in a self-explanatory timer mode or in Journey mode, which counts down to a highly anticipated specified date such as the day of your next marathon or the start date of a much needed vacation. A concealed LED matrix display (which can be set to on, off, or motion-activated) shines through the surface of the wood if exact time is needed, and an RGB backlight that illuminates the wall behind Story can be set up using Flyte’s smartphone app to represent outdoor temperature via colors, moon phases, display the sunrise and sunset, and more.
