Eole concept watch with turbine bezel lets you blow for the time

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2011

Is your own watch feeling a bit too practical? Not silly enough? Well, if that’s the case, check out the Eole watch concept from designer Julien Moise. This watch is powered by blown air, displaying the time only when you want to see it, thereby saving battery power.

It’s easy to say that this watch blows, but the truth is it’s a neat concept to conserve battery life. Even so, you will look pretty damn silly blowing for the time. The only thing that could make it worse would be if it made a kazoo type noise with each blow. There’s also a weather indicator and alarm function.

Phosphor Reveal watch uses Swarovski crystals to tell time

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2011

Swarovski crystals. They have been used to bling up many a gadget. The Phosphor brand has announced the Reveal line, which uses Swarovski crystals to actually tell the time. Phosphor is using “proprietary Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital technology” to rotate Swarovski crystals into place to form the readouts on the face.

The models are available in six styles, four of which are for women, and two for men, for $199 and up. These crystals sure look better on a watch face, than they do on an iPad.

KWID watch uses an hourglass to tell time

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 1st, 2010

The concept of “time” is a hard one for kids to grasp since their minds have yet to develop fully, so we better start training them with the KWID. The KWID is a watch that comes with a digital hourglass for a more visual and easily understandable representation on just how long a time period is.

So when you tell them that they have five minutes to clean up their toys, they can see just how quickly the minutes will vanish. Then once your child grows and understands time, the KWID watch comes with a traditional clock face which shows off the time displayed.

Apple and HarperCollins negotiating e-book deal for tablet

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

According to The Wall Street Journal, publishing company HarperCollins is in talks with Apple about bringing e-books to Apple’s rumored tablet. You know, the one that’s expected to be the focus of its January 27th event. That tablet.

Apparently other publishing companies have been in talks with Apple as well. Sure, e-book readers are what it’s all about at the moment, but soon after it will be all about being integrated into slates. It’s still unconfirmed and just a rumor, but this one makes logical sense and gels with what we’ve been hearing.

Alessi Laser Shot watch

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 3rd, 2009

Alessi Laser Shot watchWho needs old fashioned hands that go around a dial, when you can have lasers? That’s the thinking behind the latest concept watch from Alessi. Supposedly, the Laser Shot watch won’t burn your hand as it pew pew pews the time on your wrist using a laser beam.

So it’s totally safe. Unless you wake up one day to find the time permanently tattooed on your skin and glowing. In which case, it’s time to get a new watch. But hey, that’s the price you pay for having cool things.

Ants Watch will make your skin crawl

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2009

Ants Watch will make your skin crawlAt first glance, you might think that the ant watch is from Tokyoflash, but it’s actually from Seahope. It looks pretty confusing. Even more confusing than Tokyoflash watches.

I’ve looked at the image for a solid two hours and I still can’t figure out which ant does what. There is way too much math involved in this watch. It’s driving me nuts already and I don’t own the damn thing. Plus, all this attention to ants is making my skin crawl a little.

Diesel DZ9044 watch shows time on the side

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

Diesel DZ9044 watch shows time on the sideIt might be hard to use this watch at first. You are used to taking a quick glance at the watch face to see the time, but that won’t help here. The watch face is on the side, showing you the current time in up to four different time zones.

Is it practical? Not really. It’s more of a watch for those who want to be different. Also maybe for those who want to keep the time selfishly to themselves. It’s available in durable solid stainless steel with a black ion-plated finish and a matching black leather band.

Stopper postcard measures Postal delivery speed

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2009

Stopper postcard measures Postal delivery speedThe Postal service better step up their game with gadget concepts like this one on the loose. The Stopper Postcard measures how long it takes that postcard to get from point A to point B. So, now postal workers have something else to stress out about. It’s a constant reminder of how far behind they are on any given day. Let’s hope it doesn’t push some of them over the edge.

My one question is this: How long does it count? I, like many of you have mailed things and have waited for things that have apparently been swallowed by a black hole. So, if you never receive a package, is it still counting the days up to infinity?

Timeless Garden lets you grow grass, tell time

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2009

Timeless Garden lets you grow grass, tell timeWhy you would want to grow grass indoors just to have a clock, is anybody’s guess. Especially since almost every device these days has a clock. Who knows, maybe you just really love weeds indoors. If so, the Timeless Garden may be for you.

It’s powered by the chemistry between mud and metal, so that toxic batteries aren’t required. They describe it as “an indoor plant with a self-sustaining digital clock”.

Googly-eyed clock tells time with googly-eyes

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2009

Googly-eyed clock tells time with googly-eyesThis clock tells time with it’s googly-eyes, so no matter what the hour, it’s always goofy. It’s from designer Mike Mak, who states that the “Eyeclock is a pleasuring clock which gives pleasure while telling you time.”

I don’t know about you, but being pleasured by googly eyes doesn’t seem all that pleasurable. If the photos are any indication, the right eye circles around as the minutes tick by, while the right eye swirls slower for the hours. Sure, it’s cute, but would you want to look at it all day?

Yes or No Watch decides for you

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

Yes or No Watch decides for youWe’ve seen plenty of overly complicated watches with tons of features and all kinds of bells and whistles. This watch on the other hand, like the GPS coin, keeps it real simple. Yes or no.

The idea is that it will help you make all of those hard decisions in life. As the precious seconds of your life tick by, the words “yes” and “no” are alternately displayed. When you need to make a decision, just look at your watch for the answer. Maybe you could flip your GPS coin and turn to this watch for two out of three.

Time Tuner Alarm Clock looks like analog

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on January 1st, 2009

Time Tuner Alarm Clock looks like analogHere’s a great design that can’t make up it’s mind as to whether it’s from the future or the past. We like it. The Time Tuner was created by Istanbul-based Antrepo Design Industry, who decided against the traditional digital clock face. It instead boasts an analog style that resembles a radio tuner.

It’s a lot like our favorite watches from Tokyoflash. The numbers along the length of the dial light-up to show you the hour. At the same time, an illuminated vertical red line moves across the dial for minutes. If you’re looking for a clock with style, look no further.

Super Electrofluorescent Profanity Machine swears, tells the time

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008

Super Electrofluorescent Profanity Machine swears, tells the timeSwearing has lost it’s luster, let’s face it. Words that used to have an impact just don’t do it anymore. We’ve become de-sensitized. We need a new way to sling profanity. Like with a clock. The Super Electrofluorescent Profanity Machine will generate random four-letter words for you at the rate of one per second. The machine was constructed from fluorescent vacuum tubes, and also tells time. We just love clocks that use vacuum tubes, but we never thought we would see them swearing.

It will cost you $125, but if you have the money, it’s an interesting take on the whole tube/clock/swearing thing. According to the designer, every four-letter English word could possibly show up on the display. To prevent gibberish, the device is programmed to display pronounceable words, not just random letters.

Torus concept watch adds some color to time

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 19th, 2008

Torus concept watch adds some color to timeThe Torus concept watch from Nicolas Meiresonne won’t give you the exact time. But it will look pretty in a Sci-Fi kind of way. This timepiece offers the wearer only a perception of time, by cycling through a variety of pretty colors.

For instance, you’ll get blue and green in the morning, while yellow and orange mean noon with red and purple depicting both evening and night. The bracelet’s surface has touchscreen capability, allowing you to set the timer simply by tapping on the corresponding segments. Pretty cool, but pretty useless if you need to know appropriate times.

Tokyoflash launches the Ni

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2008

Tokyoflash launches the NiTokyoflash, those wild and crazy watch makers just never take a breather. Which is great for us, because if it wasn’t for Tokyoflash, watches would be boring. They’re back, having never left, with their latest wristwatch known as the Ni.

This design is at once stylish and minimal. The Ni is made entirely from stainless steel and features a polished finish, with horizontal grooves on the face and strap that give it a great look. The time progresses in one direction. Touch the upper button for an animation before the time is displayed. Each LED on the bottom line indicates two hours, the line above indicates a single hour, a combination presenting the current hour. Groups of 10 minutes are presented on the center row and single minutes on the upper two lines.
