DOTKLOK: Digital Clocks Go Open Source

DOTKLOK: Digital Clocks Go Open Source
This cool clock is the DOTKLOK and it’s an open source digital clock that can display the time with many different animations. The best part is that it’s totally hackable, not that I’d have the time to do this, but it’s nice to have that option.

Kwid Watch Uses Digital Hourglass to Tell Time: Kind of Like Old School Windows
Remember that annoying hourglass from Windows ’95? It was a very frustrating reminder to all us geeks at how much we hated Micro$oft. Still, it looks like this concept has been revived in the form of a watch that even toddlers can read.

Pop Hours LEGO Watch Can’T be Assembled Into Anything Else but a Watch

Pop Hours LEGO Watch Can’T be Assembled Into Anything Else but a Watch
One thing that I’ve started to expect from all of this LEGO merchandise is that it usually looks cheap and easy to throw away. This doesn’t hold true for Pop Hours, Jean Charles de Castelbajac’s (aka “JC/DC”) latest watch.

I’ve always got my eyes peeled for unique watches for you guys, and this is definitely one of the cooler high-tech timepieces I’ve seen in a while. Seiko Japan’s new SDGA001, SDGA002 and SDGA003 watches feature the world’s first active matrix electrophoretic display (EPD).

4:20 Clock Perfect for Stoners

4:20 Clock Perfect for Stoners
This digital clock is designed for, um, those who enjoy the occasional dube. Why, you ask? Well, this very special clock is permanently stuck at 4:20. And for those of you who know about these sort of things, you know that 4:20 is a very special time of day.

Tokyoflash Traffic Watch: It’S 5 Minutes to Gridlock

Tokyoflash Traffic Watch: It’S 5 Minutes to Gridlock
Although I love Japanese watches, the one thing that I dislike about a lot of them is to take a few moments to figure out what the heck is exactly going on. The Kisai Traffic watch shows what looks like some random traffic, which is supposed to help you tell the time.

Pilothandwriting Creates a Custom Font From Your Handwriting, Whether or Not It’S Legible

Pilothandwriting Creates a Custom Font From Your Handwriting, Whether or Not It’S Legible
Some say that doctors have the most atrocious writing. I think that anyone who has to write day-in and day-out will try and optimize their hand strokes to the bare minimum, which is what a lot of doctors do, with their squiggly writing.

Great Cg Robots: Perfect for Desktop Wallpaper

Altek’S Phone Takes 14mp Photos: Time to Throw Out Your Dslr?

Altek’S Phone Takes 14mp Photos: Time to Throw Out Your Dslr?
It seems that the megapixel count in digital cameras won’t stop climbing. That’s also true for camera phones. Or phone cameras. Whichever way you put it, the new phone from Altek has a 14MP, now that’s quite a lot for something so small.

Mechanical 7-Segment Watch Concept Mashes Up Analog and Digital Worlds

Mechanical 7-Segment Watch Concept Mashes Up Analog and Digital Worlds
I just love the design of Carl Allen’s wristwatch concept, which provides a display that looks like a digital 7-segment display, but is actually mechanical. From a distance, the displays look like LED or LCDs, but a mechanical system actually would move tiny segmented panels under the surface of the watch, creating that illusion.

Tokyoflash Supersonic: New Concept Watch Perfect for Robots

Tokyoflash Supersonic: New Concept Watch Perfect for Robots
Tokyoflash’s latest concept watch looks cool enough to be used by our robot overlords! Assuming robots wore watches, that is. The Supersonic has bold modern looks and a sleek smoked black hexagonal face. As with most Tokyoflash watches, half the fun is trying to figure out what the time is when you look at it.

Vincent Audio C-60 CD Player is C-Razy Expensive

Vincent Audio C-60 CD Player is C-Razy Expensive
There are lots of things that I would squander $5,000 on and not think twice about. Most people would probably think these things were a waste of money. None of the ways to part $5K from my wallet has anything to do with music though.

Wicks Looper: One Little Box, Plenty of Noise

Wicks Looper: One Little Box, Plenty of Noise
If you’re into cranking out some really big electronic sounds, you might want to check out this nifty little device called the Wicks Looper – Acid Mix. The $119 (USD) gadget from Australia’s Rarebeasts can push out some really thick electronic noise loops, perfect for live electronic performances.

Earlyadopters’ the Audio System Controlled by Metal Rods, Not Knobs or Buttons
We’ve featured a number of unusual finds from Korea’s EarlyAdopter over the years, but this is the first time I’ve seen them come out with their own electronic hardware. While it might look like some sort of strange antennae or musical instrument, this otherworldly-looking device is actually a complete audio system.

Josh Chadwick’s Cadence Watch Melds Digital, Analog Worlds
From the looks of this cool new timepiece from designer Josh Chadwick, you might want to hold off until September to buy a new watch. Chadwick recently created the design for this awesome timepiece during a design competition held by watchmaker Cadence Watch.
