Big Bang Wristwatch Blows My Mind

Big Bang Wristwatch Blows My Mind
While it might not be the easiest watch to read, there’s no denying the sheer awesomeness of this luxuriant wristwatch from Hublot. The appropriately named Big Bang 44mm All Black Carat watch may have traditional analog dials, but its design is anything but conservative.

Fossil Analog Digital Watch has a Split Personality

Fossil Analog Digital Watch has a Split Personality
You can always count of Fossil to crank out some über-cool wristwatches. One of their latest creations mashes up the analog and digital worlds in a brilliant way. The minute I saw Fossil’s Ana-Digi watch, I was reminded of that classic Star Trek episode with the half-white, half-black races who hated each other because of the color of each other’s skin.

Philippe Starck Veiled Watch Camouflages the Time
Designer Philippe Starck is a master of modern minimalism, and his latest timepiece is no exception. His Veiled Watch cleverly conceals an analog watch face behind a specially electroplated crystal that looks like a continuation of the stainless steel watch band.

Daniel Rozin’s Circles Mirror Reflects, Distorts Reality
Artist Daniel Rozin has been creating mind-blowing interactive artworks, combining computers, video cameras and mixed media since 1999. One of his more recent works was this hybrid digital/analog mirror which reflects images from passers-by using a huge grid of rotating circles.

This watch uses a tiny globe to tell the time instead of conventional hour and minute hands. As each hour passes, the globe gradually rotates around the North Pole, making a full revolution every 24 hours.

Real Fake Watches Can’t Tell Time
German designer Linda Kostowski designed these wacky wearable artworks that look like watches, but they’re really totally phony. Cut from leather, laser-embellished, then hand-assembled to look like wristwatches, realfakewatches will set you up with a timepiece that says, “who cares what time it is?”

See Through Clock Projects the Time

See Through Clock Projects the Time
Here’s another cool clock design from Japan’s I.D.E.A. International. This one lets you project a functional analog clock face onto any wall. The projection clock is housed in a see-through acrylic shell which shows off the unique optics and mechanical components that generate the clock image.

Flame: the Talking Midi Synthesizer

Flame: the Talking Midi Synthesizer
Dig that retro “Speak & Spell” sound? This sound module out of Germany produces an array of interesting eighties-esque bleeps, blips and fuzz that can incorporate little bits of speech and other sound effects. The Flame Talking Synth can also be driven by a MIDI controller so you can really compose some serious electronica using one of these and composition software.

Pimp Your Sixaxis Controller

Pimp Your Sixaxis Controller
Don’t care for the clean design of the PS3’s SIXAXIS controller? Why not make it super fugly with these analog joystick covers from Japan. These oddly textured silicon caps attach to the top of the PlayStation 3’s analog sticks, supposedly protecting the thumbsticks and providing grip, all while making your controller the ugliest one on the block.

LED / Pocket Watch Clock

LED / Pocket Watch Clock
Designer Nicolas Cheng’s pocket watch /LED alarm clock merges old school and modern design into a single design that’s simply stunning. The clock automatically illuminates when picked up, then turns off when placed back on a surface.

Thingamagoop: Super Cool Portable Analog Synth
While researching the topic of innovative musical devices, I came across the guys at Bleep Labs and their totally wacky Thingamagoop custom synthesizer series. These portable sythesizers generate electronica using a unique control interface: as you move a colorful LED over a photosensor, the sound’s waveform changes.
