Analog aesthetic meets digital information with the Ambient Executive Dashboard. The Dashboard operates wirelessly and displays real-time, at-a-glance information customized to your world. Simply select the details that you wish to track – stocks, weather, traffic, and more – and watch as the world streams in. It can simultaneously track three different pieces of data and display them in an analog format.

No WiFi, computer, or Internet required – just plug it in and start receiving information (due to that fact works only in United States). Swappable faceplates make accessing new information instantaneous – just insert a new faceplate and the information changes automatically.

– Faceplates on the Dashboard may be swapped to track many sources of information such as weather, pollen count, traffic congestion, a stock portfolio or your buddy’s AIM status
– Includes 30 content faceplates that can be inserted into each of the three Dashboard faces
– Easy to use, works right out of the box
– Great to display on a desk, dresser, bookshelf or even wall mount
– Uses the Ambient Information Network – does not require WiFi, Ethernet, or computer
– Uses AC adapter (included) or two AAA batteries (not included)
– Measures 11″ x 3.5″ x 2″
– 1-year manufacturer warranty

The price of the Executive Dashboard is $99.99

Just attach to the end of your faucet (universal adapters included), and when the water flows through the magic chamber, it simply turns on the blue LED array and illuminates the stream with a soothingly powerful crystal blue hue.
