The cool modern watches from Black Dice let you check the time in style. The timepieces feature a modern, curved display consisting of 82 individual LED blocks, which animate in mesmerizing patterns before displaying the time.
Originally created in 1979, and recently revamped for a new generation, this mysterious chrome device is actually a timepiece.
Rather than using hands or digits, the Audocron uses a series of beeps and flashing lights to indicate the current time.
This nifty gadget from Italy’s Rotaliana combines a bunch of useful capabilities in one convenient box. The Multibook offers a lamp, clock and a handy organizer for your electronic chargers, all under the same hood.
Until you turn on the Multibook, it looks a lot like an ordinary book.
The slick black case and bright, easy-to-read displays on these Slan LED watches really caught my eye.
There’s just something so refreshing about a digital watch that’s just clean and simple, unencumbered by extraneous information or newfangled display paradigms.
Looking to impress the ladies in the bedroom? This gadget slips under your bed and gives it a cool blue glow that just screams “it’s time for make sexytime”.
Just like those lights you see under pimpmobiles, this saucer-shaped light source slides beneath your bed frame and casts a dreamy blue light in all directions.
Interactive artist Andrew Fentem created this cool electronic cube puzzle game loaded with colorful LEDs. The Fentix Cube is controlled by touch as well as through movement.
While it’s designed as a platform, capable of playing a number of different games and puzzles, the interactive plaything happens to do a great job digitally emulating the old Rubik’s Cube.
While you might think that top hats went out of fashion a hundred years ago, this funky hat hack uses modern technology to bring the classic cap into a new era.
The LedHat is a handcrafted wonder that involved soldering a grid of hundreds of individual green LEDs around the crown of a top hat.
The latest robotic critter from RoboSapien creator WowWee is the reptilian Roboboa. The snake-like robot can roam along the floor and raises its front end up like a real Boa Constrictor.
The Roboboa not only can slither around thanks to its snake-like articulated body, it can serve a variety of fun an practical purposes too.
On paper, the idea of a little desktop doggie lamp might be cute, but somewhere along the line it just all went so horribly awry. There’s just absolutely nothing that’s right about this rechargeable LED dog lamp.
Japan’s high-tech watch importer TokyoFlash has been carrying watches from the Pimp line since about 2003. The original series of watches was made popular by its unconventional displays and retro modern design sensibility. Now Pimp is updating some of their original designs with a fresh new look.
It’s always fun to see what sort of quirky tech will come out of the creative minds of Japan’s electronic toy makers. The latest wacky gadget to find its way from Konami’s Party Goods division is the electronic Push-Up Counter.
I’m thinking that this Halloween, I’d like to scare all the neighborhood kids out of their wits with a bunch of these disembodied robo-heads sitting in my front windows.
The brilliantly named “Glowing Scary Deaths-Head Toy” looks like your average, everyday metal-headed, Skeletor-robot-zombie until you flip the switch.
Designer Kei Yamamoto created these lighting fixtures that look like giant LEDs. Made from acrylic, aluminum and a dozen LED light sources each, they’re each about 20-times the size of a normal light-emitting diode.
The fixtures’ clear acrylic shell and arrangement of LEDs create a beautiful visual effect on the wall above the lamps.
Boy, does that sound painful, or what? Actually, it’s fun. These colorful rubber BOING Balls (not to be confused with the classic Amiga orb of the same name) have a set of tri-colored LEDs inside of them, and change hues when you apply pressure to them.
The latest watch hitting our shores courtesy of Japan’s TokyoFlash looks more like something on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise than something that could actually tell time. Heck, for all I know, it’s actually displaying the current temperature level of the warp core.
For some reason, the latest digital watch from London’s STORM features a readout that brings back memories of classic TV shows from my childhood. I’m not sure if it’s more reminiscent of a Cylon Centurion helmet from Battlestar Galactica, or the dashboard from KITT from Knight Rider.
