There are a bunch of new watch designs that have been posted on the Tokyoflash blog. Most interesting is the one from Tynan Mayhew from Canada. What’s amazing is that this comes from a 14-year old kid!
There’s nothing I like better than a good FPS, and Raven’s upcoming shooter Singularity looks like it could be a whole lotta fun, thanks to its use of time-manipulation as a game dynamic.
The games singularity weapons allow players to quickly bend time, making buildings crumble on top of opponents as they deteriorate from age.
Normally when I talk about weird watches that turn up over at Yanko Design, they’re concepts you can’t buy if they are appealing. Today we have a new and sort of cool watch called the Scope Watch that looks like it would be hard to use.
When I first saw the Reflectius Clock by Art Lebedev, I thought that it was simply using reflections, but that’s not the whole story. This wild concept clock uses 60 mirrors and a single laser to display the time.
The mirrors rotate so that the single laser beam is reflected at precise angles so that it draws the digits on the face of the clock.
When I was a kid, my grandmother had this matchstick plaque hanging in her kitchen. I looked at the thing for a while once trying to figure out what exactly it said. As it turns out the thing said “Jesus” you just had to look really hard to see the word in with the pattern the matchsticks made.
Made by Ji Lee, the Redundant Clock is the exact opposite of math clocks:
When the big hand is pointing there and the little hand is pointing there, it’s big hand pointing there and little hand pointing there o’clock.
A couple of years back, the guys over at Yanko Design surfaced this cool watch concept that featured an unusual way of telling time. I’m happy to tell you that the Ora Unica watch has actually made it to market, and it looks awesome.
Designed by Denis Guidone, and produced by Italy’s NAVA Design, the Ora Unica does away with conventional hands, and replaces them with a big squiggly line.
As much as I like digital clocks, there’s just something great about cool analog ones. This watch is called Geocentric, and for now it’s just a concept design.
Geoffrey Cooper’s Geocentric watch is kind of awesome.
Looking for a new watch? I know I am and this Diesel watch looks pretty good. It’s unique in that it can display four different times on its face.
This Diesel watch is naturally called the Time Zone and it has both analog and digital displays to feed your fancy, no matter what the time.
It has a sleek leather strap and definitely looks good, although I have to say that I’ll probably get myself a GPS watch instead.
So what is it really? It is exactly what it says it is. Made by Nirav Patel, the Sleep Remaining Indicator is a homemade gadget that indicates how long you have to sleep by shining a laser beam on the ceiling (or I guess wherever you want it to shine).
Granted, this isn’t a perpetual motion machine, but it is expensive and pretty close, so there ya go! This Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock will stand the test of time without ever losing a beat!
Just a quick thought, doesn’t this contradict the second law of thermodynamics?
Nah, just kidding. Maarten Baas isn’t crazy, just an artist. Baas made this weird, funny, and hypnotizing grandfather clock as part of his REAL TIME exhibit shown last year in Milan, Italy. The clock has no clockwork, no clock guts whatsoever.
