As you might have guessed, this new Tokyoflash watch isn’t easy to read (what else is new?) but it does looks pretty spiffy. The white version definitely makes me think of TRON: Legacy. There’s also some good news!
Darkness is good for sleeping and watching movies. But you know what it’s bad for? Seeing stuff.
Obviously, the fix for seeing things in the dark is light. If you want to see lots of stuff inside, you turn on the main lights in a room.
A while back I discovered these cool RGBy LED lamps from Japan, which could automatically detect the color on which they were placed and change to match. While they were quite cool, they were also quite expensive .
As we all know the saying “there’s an app for that“, here’s yet another new use for your iOS devices – remote-controlled LED lights.
The iGloLEDset is a special color-changing LED light set which can be remotely operated using your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
While it seems dubious that anyone in the Victorian era had an LED wristwatch, that didn’t stop Eric Schleapfer from putting one together himself.
This steampunk LED wristwatch uses a LED wristwatch board. The watch is constructed from a small piece of oak and some pieces of brass sheet and tubing.
Usually when we’re talking about cool and cryptic modern digital watches, we turn to the guys over at Tokyoflash. But this time, we’ve got a sleek modern design, with a perfectly geeky display from London’s STORM.
The new STORM Cosmo is a special edition, with a multi-color LED time display that works as follows: the left column tells hours and months, and the right shows the minutes and day of the month.
Whether or not California legalizes pot tomorrow, Tokyoflash has a watch that”ll simulate the drug-induced haze with or without lighting up.
The Kisai Wasted watch features a trippy display that’ll have your eyeballs spinning as you try to figure out the time.
Halloween is almost upon us, and the tech geeks aren’t above trying to make Jack-o-lanterns scarier – or at least geekier. How about this? Installing a 70-LED matrix into a Jack-o-lantern to scare people away with blinking lights.
Going green is all fine and good for the environment and it will help you a bit when it comes time to pay those utility bills too. I have tried some of the green florescent bulbs in my normal light fixtures before, but the weird colored light bothered me so I tossed them out.
It’s design concept day here on Technabob, and here’s another cool idea which might actually get made. Designed by Scott Galloway, this 7R0N watch concept gets its inspiration from TRON.
For starters, Scott’s 7R0N (Seven-R-Zero-N) watch just looks awesome.
My daughter was born on Halloween so it’s a pretty big deal around out house, with all sorts of decorations and parties to be had. It’s time to start decorating for Halloween already and if you want something a bit geekier for your porch than a carved pumpkin, this is the DIY project for you.
Those crazy scientists over at Tokyoflash came up with another watch, that (surprise) is strangely hard to read – the Kisai Round Trip. But that’s what we expect from Tokyoflash, right?
Like a lot of their watches, this one is also charged via a USB port, which is handy, but it still takes 3.5
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.
The Pop Hours is inspired by classic LEGOs, with each of the links of the chunky strap looking like a LEGO brick.
Using LEDs to simulate an analog clock is kind of cool (although not as cool as say, a mechanical LED clock.) This clock mimics the hands of a traditional clock using rows upon rows of LEDs that are all wired together.
This clock also includes a ‘digital mode’, in which the LEDs are used to display the time in a more traditional digital format.
These minifig flashlights add to the LEGO lamps released a few months ago. Each of them have a white LED light at the bottom of each foot, and their legs are poseable so that you can point the lights in different directions, e.g.
