Tokyoflash Space Digit watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2010

Tokyoflash has introduced their latest watch concept called the Space Digit. This unique and hard to read watch features a silver ring around the face that contrasts against the black case and strap to enhance the fact that the lens is raised above the case.

There is also another deep acrylic lens that covers the interface, and beneath is what appears to be a maze of digits. Blue LEDs light up the display when the button is touched and three flashing digits show the current time.

Tokyoflash Wavelength watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2010

Tokyoflash has unveiled their latest timepiece called the Wavelength. This one looks a bit out of character for the company, but still pretty neat. It features an always on LCD display and user selectable LED backlighting.

As usual, telling time with this watch is a bit confusing. The hour is displayed in digits in negative space in the center of the display, while minutes are shown as the ring of blocks surrounding the digits. The first rotation of minutes in positive blocks to 30 minutes, then the second rotation in negative blocks to 60.

EOS Mixtape Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2010

Remember the days of cassette tapes? Trying to get all of the music you can on 60 and 90 minute tapes? Relive those glory days with this neat retro watch. It features a gold plated stainless steel case with “EOS NEW YORK” laser etched onto the base.

There’s also a cute laser etched robot and “60 MIN.” The dial features two movable discs which mimics the movement of a real cassette tape. The hands are on the right dial for the time, with orange markers.

Steampunk Arduino Watch plays Breakout, may actually get worn

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2010

Another day, another Arduino-based gadget. But this one is actually something you will want to wear. The Arduino Watch: Steampunk Edition has temperature, range finding, and trackball input while displaying time, games, and more with its 128 by 128 pixel OLED 16 bit display.

It plays Breakout and has the ability to display time in digital, analog or binary. Other sensors and programs can be added if you like. It can be made for around $250.

Tokyo Flash’s Changing Lanes watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2010

The latest watch from Tokyo Flash was inspired by taxis and other vehicles weaving through rush hour traffic. As usual, it a puzzle to figure out how to read the time on this one. The lights that are going down the left side of the watchface are the hours, with 1:00 being at the very top, and 6:00 at the bottom. The next ‘lane’ shows the hours of 7:00 to 12:00, starting from the bottom and going up.

Then on the right side you have the minutes, in three minute segments. 3 is at the top, and down the bottom is 27 minutes, while the lane to the left of the far-right increasing to 57 minutes at the north of the watch. Quarter-minutes, 15 and 45, are in the middle, and 2 minute intervals will light up separately. Frankly, I’m still confused.

Tokyoflash Gridlock watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 23rd, 2010

Tokyoflash, makers of high-end nerdware, have yet another futuristic watch. The Gridlock watch features an asymmetrical design with a curved, brushed metal case, a black screen and an orange interface. I know, you have the usual question. How the hell do you read this one?

Well, the hours are displayed on the left in highlighted squares, while the minutes on the right in digits. It’s not nearly as tough to read as some of their other watches, but just as good looking.

The ever increasing watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Here’s another watch that looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi movie. It looks awesome and as is usually the case with these watches it is hard to read. This one comes from the folks at Yanko Design from Eleeno. It’s called the Ever Increasing Watch.

The face has a grid and dotted lines that looks like a graph. The top blue line is the hours, the middle green line is the minutes in tens, and the bottom red line shows single minutes. The lines have the numbers underneath as well to make it easier.

Penthouse Cell Phone Watch is huge

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Look at the size of this watch phone. It’s so big I can see Cindy Crawford’s mole. They describe it as a “compact 47 x 55 frame” that is the world’s smallest super cell phone. I suppose if you want an actual phone on your wrist, you want it this size though just to be functional.

The Penthouse watch phone features a 1.5 inch touchscreen, full native quad band functionality for worldwide use, Dual SIM card slots for business and personal communications, and is fully unlocked for use on whatever network you choose.

Avatar 1259B Watch looks as odd as its name

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on May 12th, 2010

Sometimes gadgets make it to market that should have stayed at the concept stage. Such is the case with the really weird looking Avatar 1259B Watch that is available to purchase at Yanko Design.

This is one of the rare concept watches that Yanko shows off that you can actually buy. It uses 12 LED lights on the circular face to show hours, five LEDs show tens of minutes, and nine other LEDs show the minutes.

Swatch concept has no crystal to scratch

Posted in Concepts by Shane McGlaun on May 7th, 2010

Back when Swatches were popular, I had a bunch of them in bright 80′s colors. The things looked good for a few weeks, and then they were too scratched up to even tell the time on. A new concept carrying the Swatch brand has a design that resists scratches.

The watch has a face made from plastic and coated in rubber with the time markings on it. Around the edge of that face is a glass bezel positioned where scratches won’t be an issue that covers the bright green hands.

Maximilian Busser’s Frog watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2010

Imagine if you will, a frog that became assimilated by the Borg. This awesome design from watchmaker Maximilian Busser is kinda like that. It’s been designed by Horological Machine Number 3 and Busser and is called simply the Frog.

The shape and style is designed to “bring a child’s sense of awe and sense of playfulness” to all those who look at it. The two large, bulging domes indicate hours and minutes. Those domes are made of sapphire crystal so no scratches.

Scope Watch tells time using latitude and longitude

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2010

Here’s a cool retro looking watch. Looks a bit large though. The Scope watch looks like something from a movie. Specifically it looks like that familiar computer screen where our hero locks onto an object, say a car, and enhances it several times until he can read the license plate numbers.

The design is simple and that’s why it’s cool. It won’t enhance images, but the watch uses the tried and true latitude and longitude to give you the time.

Tokyoflash Kisai Broke watch looks like broken stained glass

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2010

Love it or hate it, Tokyoflash makes unique watches. The face of the watch looks like broken stained glass, which is probably why it’s called the Kisai Broke. This one is also USB rechargeable, so no replaceable batteries, which is always a hassle.

It’s a Tokyoflash design, so it won’t be easy to read. But you don’t buy it to tell the time. You buy it to make a statement on your wrist. The Kisai Broke is available for $168 over at Tokyoflash now.

USB Memory Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 27th, 2010

There’s nothing new abut a watch with flash memory in it, but the USB Memory Watch concept looks cooler than most and stands out from the crowd. The USB port on the end of the watch is retractable, so it won’t get in the way when you need to use it.

Plus, we like the face on this one, which features a visual indicator of just how much storage space is left on the watch, uh drive. It just plain looks awesome.

A watch with volcanic ash from the Icelandic volcano

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2010

This watch comes from the same guy who brought us this watch, with moon dust and parts from Apollo 11. He managed to get his hands on some of the ashes from the Icelandic Eyjafjallajökull volcano very quickly.

The damn thing only erupted a week ago. The design looks appropriately burnt and molten. The catch is that there’s only one available. The price isn’t listed because it would send you into cardiac arrest.
