A business idea (a special kind of clock)
    #4320040 - 06/21/05 11:34 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I'm sure everybody here can invision what a skateboard deck looks like (without the trucks and the wheels). Imagine of you put a clock in the middle of it (drill a hole in the middle of the board and put a two-hand clock in it). And the board would have 1-12 digits on it to signify time. Do you think that would be a cool idea?

There could be different graphics and designs for it. Let me add that the thing would not be expensive. Maybe like $20-$25 or something

The market would probably be limited to skateboarders, but it's still a cool idea.

Taking an already existing product and sticking a clock in it? THAT'S BRILLIANT!

:lol:

No...it's not brilliant.  But, it is just an idea that I stumbled upon.  Do you have any "change the world" ideas to share?

Skateboards cost more than 20 bucks. Plus the money you'd have to put into it for the clock gears and shit.

Well you could get blanks for about ~30, but if you want graphic decks you're looking at spending at LEAST 40 bucks a deck.

could you still ride the board and see what time it is? that'd be sweet,
"dude, i gotta be home by seven, what time is it?"
"i dont know dude, i wish i had clock right now"
"damn, my moms' cookin stovetop, and i dont wanna be late"
"aww man, can i come?"


but seriously, you could get clock parts for like $7 at a craft store, then get a used board, and drill a hole in it.. it'd be simple as drilling a hole.

It doesn't have to be a real deck that's designed to take the stress of skateboarding. It could be made of cheaper materials and made to look real. Why spend money on structural reinforcing for a clock?

I can't see too many of these things selling at a skate shop; skateboarders are a broke bunch. But maybe in a gift catalog where grandma will buy one for her skater grandson's b-day.

I have a hookup. I know a guy who runs a wholesale skateboard manufacturing shop. I could probably get blanks for 10-15$ depending on how many I bought. And those would be real skateboard blanks (made to handle the stresses of skating). I could probably have him cheese the boards (they wouldn't handle skating, but they would look good) for even less than that.
