The Eta Clock tells you where your family members are, just like in Harry Potter
The Eta Clock is a new Kickstarter project from a startup called DC Creatives that works with a smartphone app to show you the locations of your friends and family members, using a fun, clock-style interface.
So basically, it’s a real, functional version of the Weasley family’s magical clock from the Harry Potter series. And — putting aside the fraught social issues of needing to know your family member’s locations — it’s kind of amazing that it exists. While it’s worth pointing out that the Eta Clock is by no means the first to emulate the Weasley family’s tracking timepiece, it is (to the best of my knowledge) the first product that is ostensibly being sold to consumers. (Unless the Kickstarter crashes and burns, that is.)
