DIY Wristwatch Phone: Watchie-Talkie

DIY Wristwatch Phone: Watchie-Talkie
A few months ago, we featured Instructables employee DJ aka Aleator777’s Apple II Watch. He recently shared another impressive retro watch, one that’s arguably more useful than the current Apple Watch. He calls it the Communicator Watch, because it’s also a GSM cell phone.

Nixie Radian Analog Tube Clock: Time is a Spiked Circle

Nixie Radian Analog Tube Clock: Time is a Spiked Circle
Most nixie tube clocks are based on tubes that show numerals. Tungsten Customs is no stranger to such clocks, but its latest product uses nixie tubes to create an analog-style digital clock. The Nixie Radian’s IN-9 bargraph tubes serve as the clock’s hour and minute hand.

The $28,500 Star Wars Watch

The $28,500 Star Wars Watch
I think we just found the most expensive new piece of Star Wars merchandise yet. If the $28,500 sticker price shocks you, at least they’re throwing in a pair of cufflinks for free. So that makes it totally worth it.

DRIVE Watch: Time for a Different Kind of Watch Design

DRIVE Watch: Time for a Different Kind of Watch Design
The DRIVE watch is as manly as wristwatches get. One look at this timepiece, and there is no question about it. This watch was made for a man. It’s all about speed and power. There is no mistaking Gus Petrikas’ design concept for anything other than what it is.

Killing Time Takes on a New Meaning with the Arachnophobia Timepiece

Killing Time Takes on a New Meaning with the Arachnophobia Timepiece
If you can’t stand spiders, you might want to pass on this creepy yet amazing spider-inspired timepiece called the Arachnophobia. It was created by luxury watchmaker MB&F, because why not? It basically looks like a giant mechanical spider that runs on the power of your soul.

Review: Microsoft Band Smartwatch and Fitness Tracker

Review: Microsoft Band Smartwatch and Fitness Tracker
For the longest time, I thought of Microsoft primarily as a software company. But over the last couple of years, they’ve released some really good hardware that can keep up with the best players in the market.

Knights of the Round Table Watch: One Land, One King, One Watch

Knights of the Round Table Watch: One Land, One King, One Watch
The Knights of the Round Table Watch is so awesome you’ll swear that Merlin created it using dragon’s breath. It was made by watchmaker Roger Dubuis. I guess it beats a Lady of the Lake watch, because this one isn’t wet all of the time, while it tries to get you to take a sword every hour on the hour.

Original PlayStation Turned into a Clock: Game Time

Original PlayStation Turned into a Clock: Game Time
The original PlayStation debuted in 1994. You probably still have one in your closet somewhere. Well, if yours is not working and you want a project, you can turn it into a clock, just like Twitter user @Rurue0111.

Of Course an Apple Watch Will Blend

Of Course an Apple Watch Will Blend
You can probably guess that I am a serious gadget hound. I like gadgets even if many of them are of questionable use. It’s sort of like a Dungeon Master collecting every die he can lay hands on just in case they ever need to roll a 1-in-50 chance of a Paladin getting demonic syphilis.

Scientists Create Clock that Won’t Lose or Gain a Second for 15 Billion Years

Scientists Create Clock that Won’t Lose or Gain a Second for 15 Billion Years
When it comes to accuracy in telling time, the atomic clock is at the top of the heap. In fact, an atomic clock is used right now to set the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which is the official world time.

The Apple II Watch

The Apple II Watch
The Apple Watch is causing quite a buzz these days. And while reviews have been mixed, I’m still planning on ordering one, since I feel that I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t at least try one for a few weeks.

The Ultimate Nerd Clock

The Ultimate Nerd Clock
Finally, there is a clock that tells time in the same way that a nerd’s mind works. This 8.75″ diameter clock tells time in geek-speak.

Coolest Clock is a Smartwatch for Your Wall

Coolest Clock is a Smartwatch for Your Wall
After years of not wearing a watch because my mobile phone had a clock on it, I adopted a smartwatch. You won’t find me without my Pebble any more. It makes it very easy to tell if I need to send my wife to voicemail while I am working rather than digging my phone out of my pocket first.

Ant Watch Lets You Watch Ants

Ant Watch Lets You Watch Ants
Watchmaker Analog Watch Co. takes advantage of the smartwatch craze to drum up some publicity with what is most probably an April Fools’ joke. It’s called the Ant Watch, a small ant farm in the shape of a wristwatch.

HYT H3 Watch Uses Liquid to Tell Time and Breaks the Bank

HYT H3 Watch Uses Liquid to Tell Time and Breaks the Bank
When it comes to things like watches and other wearable items, I am rather cheap. For instance, I plan to stick with my Pebble for as long as it works rather than spend hundreds on a new Apple Watch.

LEGO Apple Watch: Time Pieces

LEGO Apple Watch: Time Pieces
We’ve seen a felt model of Apple’s polarizing smartwatch. Professional LEGO builder Chris McVeigh aka Power Pig made an equally cute LEGO version of the watch and showed it off on his blog and Facebook page.
