Tokyoflash Kyokusen Watch: Didn’t I See This on Star Trek?
The latest watch hitting our shores courtesy of Japan’s TokyoFlash looks more like something on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise than something that could actually tell time. Heck, for all I know, it’s actually displaying the current temperature level of the warp core.
