The Onion’s Oboo Smart Clock has been released for the Indie GoGo InDemand Program. The clock has Onion’s powerful Omega2S IoT Module as its core computing element. The Omega2S enables the smart clock to be always connected, automatically adjust time, update local temperature and weather reports, music to wake up to and more. The smart clock even connects to other devices, like Amazon Alexa.
The features of the Oboo clock include large time display, unlimited number of alarm settings, a timer, the advanced user interface including capacitive touch buttons and hand-waving gesture control for functions like “snooze.”
The clock also has an integrated LCD screen for reporting of local or global information, and selectable “cards” such as local weather, traffic, daily calendar agenda, and music selection.
There are integrated high-quality speakers, auto-dimming of screen brightness and a night light. Two smartphone charging ports are included for easy charging ability. The integrated rechargeable battery allows for portability and maintaining operation during a power outage.
The Oboo Smart Clock uses the internet of things (IoT). IoT is quickly growing, and more companies are being driven to use it. The Onion team started with the basic concept of a bedside alarm clock and added IoT technology to make it relevant to smart home technology trends.
The Omega2S is the core processing module. With integrated memory, storage and WiFi, the Omega2S would handle the base functions, while offloading peripheral functions to a coprocessor and a Bluetooth module.
Onion worked with industry experts to achieve a sleek look and feel as well as impressive sound amplification and reverberation.
