Geeky is as geek does I always say. If you really want to show off your new iPod nano and prove to the world that you are geek, what you need to do is turn your new nano into a massive square wrist watch.
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!
I’ve always got my eyes peeled for unique watches for you guys, and this is definitely one of the cooler high-tech timepieces I’ve seen in a while.
Seiko Japan’s new SDGA001, SDGA002 and SDGA003 watches feature the world’s first active matrix electrophoretic display (EPD).
The most I have ever spent on a watch was about $100, and that was pushing it. I haven’t worn a watch in five years now; I just use my smartphone for the time. The rich folks out there like their fancy watches though and need a place to keep all those watches safe from thieves along with their other fancy stuff.
Here’s another new concept watch from those guys over at TokyoFlash. They call it Night Vision and it actually looks pretty good, thanks to the bright green lights on the face of the watch.
This is coupled with a matte body and strap.
While many of the unusual electronic watches coming out of Asia feature complex displays that border on insane (you hear us Tokyoflash?), this LED watch is about as simple as we can imagine.
The ABYSS watch has no hands.
The guys at Japan’s Seahope, known for many a cool digital watch – have partnered up with Takara Tomy to produce a new timepiece inspired by the Transformers.
While it’s not exactly clear from this early concept sketch, we’re hoping the chronolabel LED Transformer will transform from a watch to a stand-up clock.
I just love the design of Carl Allen’s wristwatch concept, which provides a display that looks like a digital 7-segment display, but is actually mechanical.
From a distance, the displays look like LED or LCDs, but a mechanical system actually would move tiny segmented panels under the surface of the watch, creating that illusion.
Now that you’ve got an iMac, an iPhone and an iPad, you need yet another Apple wonder-gadget, don’t you? While this concept design for a timepiece isn’t actually from Apple, it’s cool enough that it could be.
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.
I don’t know whether I love it or hate it, but this is a really distinctive watch, made by those nutty watchmakers over at Tokyoflash.
Unlike other recent Tokyoflash designs, this isn’t a concept, and you can actually buy it.
Romain Jerome is known for turning tragedy into luxury, and its latest masterpiece is no different. The Eyjafjallajökull-DNA watch has rocks and ash from the volcano that’s currently throwing fits in Iceland.
Say what you will about the absurdity of the concept, but I think we can all agree that this is one fine-looking timepiece.
We’ve certainly featured our fair share of unusual watches here on Technabob, so I figured why not continue that tradition with this watch that replaces normal hands with screw heads.
Conceptualized by China’s Tao Ma, the MEN2014 watch would replace the hour, minute and second hands with screw heads which have a small red mark at the end to indicate the current position on the dial.
Hamilton claims that the Time Player watch was inspired by the fact that man used to believe that the earth was flat. So Hamilton made… a flat watch. A flat watch that displays the time in four different zones, and doubles as a pseudo-puzzle.
