Here comes a real-life Harry Potter clock!
    2018-January-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

The “Harry Potter” films are full of fascinating gizmos* with the Weasley family clock, seen in the Chamber of Secrets, a firm fans’ favorite.

And now the magic in the movies has become reality because tech wizards have invented a real-life version, called “Eta Clock.”

The Weasley clock has nine golden hands containing pictures of the Weasley family and it shows whether they are at home, school, lost, or even in “mortal peril*.” The Eta Clock does the same thing but using GPS rather than magic. The whimsical* timepiece has several colored hands that each represent a different person.

But rather than pointing to numbers, the hands point to locations, such as home, work, gym, abroad, hospital, school or airport, depending on where the person is.

To connect people to the Eta Clock device, friends and family must download an Eta Clock app, create an account and add locations in their mobile app.

The clock uses those locations to determine where family and friends are located throughout their day. The hands then mimic their movements.

The clock is designed by husband and wife team Kristie and Eric D’Ambrosio Cornell, who are both engineers.(SD-Agencies)
