The Tokyoflash Kisai Night Vision was submitted as a concept about a year ago and thanks to the user votes on the Tokyoflash website, it has become reality. It’s surprisingly easy to read once you figure out how to do so.
Remember those plasma ball things you used to play with when killing time at The Sharper Image back in the 1990s? You know, the ones that shot bolts of electricity towards your fingertips when you touched the glass on the outside?
Unlike most of Tokyoflash’s watches, the new Kisai 3D Unlimited is actually pretty easy to read. The numbers are displayed anti-clockwise in a sort of isometric 3D perspective, with the hours at the top. It takes a brief second to get the hang of it, then it all makes perfect sense.
This unique watch from Tokyoflash tells time with words instead of numbers or hands. The always-on LCD watch was originally submitted by a 15-year old Canadian and Tokyoflash made it into reality. Tynan Mayhew submitted this design last year and it’s now available for all, through Tokyoflash’s online store.
Tokyoflash just released the Kisai Rogue SR2 watch, an updated version of the Rogue that they had available before. Unlike most of the Tokyoflash range of digital watches, the Kisai Rogue SR2 features an always-on LCD display.
Before you leave the club and head on over to your car to drive your tipsy self back home, I recommend that you run by your level of drunkenness via this Tokyoflash watch that has an Alcohol Test Function built within it.
Tokyoflash just announced a limited acetate version of the Kisai RPM, which was a reader-submitted design turned into reality back in November. Although the large blank face still looks a bit odd in my taste, at least this watch is easier to read than Tokyoflash’s usual crop.
I can see how this concept watch submitted by a Japanese designer might be considered crass by some, especially in light of the situation in Fukushima. Honestly, when I saw it the first thing that came to my mind was Fallout and the game’s Pip-Boy wrist computer.
The latest cool concept watch to show up on the TokyoFlash design blog is this unique timepiece which would tell time like a traditional sundial. However, this particular sundial doesn’t rely on the sun’s powerful rays at all.
The TokyoFlash design blog has become the place for cool new watch concepts, and this recent pick is one of my new favorites. The Uzumaki watch has a cool high-tech style, but actually uses an analog face to achieve its dramatic modern look.
Well, they’ve done it again. Tokyoflash has made another one of those cool concept watches into reality. The idea behind the Kisai Console was posted on their blog back in February 2010. And now it’s going to be on hipster’s wrists everywhere!
Tokyoflash is all about strange watches that normal folk can’t read. The latest of the watches from the company is the Kisai Transit and the thing is cheaper than many of the watches offered at Tokyoflash.
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!
