TokyoFlash Japan can always be relied upon for the latest in funky digital timepieces, and the new JLr7 LED Abstract Watch is no exception.
The JLr7 (which gets its name from the top row of LEDs on the watch) displays a series “L”-shaped LED (either in green or blue) segments which reveal the current time in a sufficiently difficult to read way that you’ll need to refer to the diagram below to have any hope of figuring out what time it is.
My favorite feature: “Between 6pm & Midnight the watch animates automatically every 15 mins to give the effect that it is malfunctioning.”

Looks like modern technology has finally caught up with the concept of the old Dick Tracy communicator watches. These geek-chic watches claim to have a range of up to 3 kilometers. Looks like a great idea for hikers and other outdoorsy types.
