Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion LCD Watch: Now You See It Now You Don’t

by Range

One of the biggest complaints that I’ve had with some of these Japanese watches is that you always have to push a button to check the time. Since Tokyoflash started working with more LCD displays, instead of only using LEDs, this problem has been somewhat solved – assuming you can make out the time. Their latest watch, the Kisai Optical Illusion, plays with diagonal lines to make you see the time.

The limited-edition Kisai Optical Illusion is a touchscreen alarm watch, with time, date, alarm, and EL backlighting. You’ll need keen eyes to make out the time, as it’s hidden in diagonally reversed lines among a maze of confusing squiggles.

If that’s too hard on your peepers, you can just press the reveal button and the watch will show the time. It comes with an animation mode as well, which alternates between the puzzling illusion and revealing the time ever 20 seconds.

While it might not look that technologically advanced, the display has one of the most complex LCD screens ever on a watch, with over 1500 tiny LCD segments which need to be addressable by its time circuits. The watch is made out of stainless steel, and it’s available in either black or silver with a natural or green display. For the next two days, you can order the Kisai Optical Illusion watch for $179 (USD). After this, you’ll end up paying $199.
