WoodStation magically shows time, date and weather in a solid block of wood

For those of us hooked on weather stations and fine craftsmanship, WoodStation takes us to Nirvana. At first glance, WoodStation looks like an ordinary block of walnut or maple, but its internal motion sensor makes the wood magically light up from within, displaying the time, date, and outside temperature/humidity, while helpful color icons deliver the weather forecast.

Thin wood in front of LEDs allows the digits and data to shine through, and it's said to be bright enough to see even in a sunny room. First rolled out as a design concept, the walnut and maple clocks will soon be available on the French Amazon site. Here's hoping this attractive instrument finds its way to these shores.
