Tokyoflash Instant Trend Watch Sends Tweets to Your Wrist

Tokyoflash Instant Trend Watch Sends Tweets to Your Wrist
The guys over at watchmaker Tokyoflash never cease to amaze me with their creative digital watch designs. Their latest concept is the Instant Trend, a timepiece that not only looks cool, but can display text notifications from your mobile phone. Assuming the watch ever gets made, the Instant Trend would receive instant Twitter and Facebook notifications when paired with your smartphone via Bluetooth. Messages and time would be displayed on a bright (presumably OLED) blue-on-black dot-matrix display, set into a modern black stainless steel body. Reading time on the Instant Trend doesn’t have to be as challenging as most Tokyoflash watch displays either.

Sidearm With a Sidekick: Armatix Pistol Unlocks via Wristwatch

Sidearm With a Sidekick: Armatix Pistol Unlocks via Wristwatch
One of the more interesting items at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show is a .22-caliber pistol with a high-tech safety feature. Made by German company Armatix, the pistol will only fire if it is within a few inches of a special wristwatch, which sends a “wireless arming signal” to the pistol. An LED at the back of the pistol flashes green to signify that it is unlocked; the LED turns red when the arming signal is not detected. The Armatix website describes a highly similar concept for a gun, but adds that not only will the gun be tied to a specific wristwatch, the wristwatch will be paired to a specific fingerprint as well.

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.
