Projection clocks have become one of the latest time-keeping must-haves. As the name suggests, a projector clock is capable of 'projecting' the image of a clock face (or electronic display) onto any wall in the house. Projector clocks tend to be smaller, which is ideal in the sense of being able to move it around the house: essentially, they allow a great deal of versatility for anyone who makes regular use of all the rooms in their home.
Models vary substantially, both in terms of the display and the clock design itself. Many projection clocks come in a modern 'digital' casing not unlike car GPS hardware. Of course, there are plenty of other variations, from clocks that look similar to lava lamps to those that mimic R2D2 from the Star Wars series of films!
Projection clocks usually offer a number of flexible options, the rotating projector screen allowing the image to be put onto everywhere from the floor to the ceiling. Images can be displayed in either monochrome or colour and the image generated is usually substantial enough that even those who suffer from near-sightedness are able to make it out without glasses or contact lenses. This can be useful for those that struggle to read the digital readings on their normal clocks.
There are also a number of models available that can connect to and synchronise with an atomic clock, ensuring that the time is unfailingly accurate. These models will usually self-correct if the time showing on the screen slips.
