The Tokyoflash Kisai On Air watch design was probably a fluke in the sense that it didn’t make reading the time off the face of the watch extremely hard. Now continuing the trend of complicated watch designs for Tokyoflash is FOUR.
I’m still rocking a several year-old plasma TV and thinking it might be time to step into a the normal LCD/LED backlit era. Now, Sony has already gone beyond that. The company has unveiled the next generation in LED TVs at CES and it is called the Crystal LED Display.
If you’re looking for a watch that looks cool, and is almost impossible for anyone but you to figure out, you might want to check out the CODEX watch concept, which tells time using a unique display that seems almost incomprehensible – until you understand the trick.
While this isn’t the first design to add lights to an umbrella, the Path Illuminating Umbrella looks like something that a sane person would actually use. Instead of peppering the canopy with LEDs, this practical umbrella has its flashlight attached to the handle, so you can easily focus the light on what’s ahead of you.
Got a spare USB port on your PC, laptop or car? Plug in one of these rechargeable flashlights and always be prepared for darkness or impromptu pretend lightsaber battles. Alan Wake would kill to have one of these.
It’s one thing to stick an LED in a prosthetic eye, but to place it in a contact lens and then place the lens in your still working eye? Gross. Also not as impressive. But YouTuber/tinkerer/proto-Adam Jensen Ben Krasnow did it nonetheless.
Ladies, how’d you like it if there was a beauty treatment which promised to reduce wrinkles, redness, scars and acne, all without any fancy dermatologists involved. How would you feel if I told you you had to wear a mask that made you look like Jason from Friday the 13th in order to reap such rewards?
Here’s a cool concept for a modern watch, which would tell time using just a few simple lines. The Geometrix watch was designed by Vladislav Novikov-Barkovsky of Red Richman Creative Studio. At its most basic, the Geometrix uses a single line to connect the dots between the current hour and its minutes.
Can you hear that? That’s the sound of e-reader lamp accessory makers cursing Flex Lighting, which has developed an internal light source for e-readers. The light source comes in the form of a flexible film and an LED working in tandem to create a diffused, power-efficient glow.
The first thing I look for when it comes to watches is ease of reading the time off of it. I mean, what’s the point of having some really fancy wristwatch when you won’t be able to tell the time, also because of it’s fancy schmancy design?
Looking for a truly unusual watch? These geeky new watches from Hong Kong look sort of like those Casio calculator watches, but without the LCD screen. The Click Keypad watch actually uses the numbered keys on the front of the watch to tell time instead of for doing math.
An interior light for your purse or backpack might seem like a strange idea, but it actually might really come in handy, especially if you find yourself looking for your keys in the dark, or struggling to find something in your purse while sitting in a darkened movie theater.
I always thought those Philips Ambilight televisions looked cool – not that the glowing border around the TVs ever made me run out and buy one. Still, the effect is sort of cool, and theoretically makes everything on your TV more vibrant and immersive.
