Bubble clox is not your traditional flat clock

17

Have you thought of the time clock based upon the revolving of the earth around the sun? The sundials had been introduced to many people years ago, thus, the traditional clocks, which was flat, 2 dimensional became boring to lots of people already. Bubble Clox is a new timepiece that will change the way you look at clocks. The Bubble Clox has 4″ dm round and spherical metal with hour, second and minute clock hands that are wrapped elegantly at the clock’s body, thus, bend the space and time.

X-Watch Concept

16

Polish designer Damian Kozlik has come up with the X-Watch timepiece concept that aims to make it user friendly with both the sighted and blind in this world. The rubber strap housing comes with an array of LEDs located behind graduated glass, featuring extruded Braille numbers that crossover, highlighting the correct time at the center. It certainly is harder to tell the time at a glance in this way compared to using an ordinary analog or digital watch, but that’s a small sacrifice considering the cool factor of the X-Watch and the ability for it to be used by the blind. Perhaps an ordinary watch with a voice telling the time would be more convenient.

Email Beeper Watch restarts a Trend

Beeper is back and has become… trendy. The best proof for this future trend is Andy Kurovets’ latest concept watch, that’s also an “email beeper”, letting you know when there’s an email waiting for you.

There is a tiny notification on the bottom display of this device and this bracelet-like gizmo is basically a watch. No phone features, no web browsing.  Watch meets beeper, could this become a hit?

Oracle gets big on Sun

14

The Oracle concept watches by Designer Andy Kurovets mixes time with Chinese philosophy. The philosophy in particular is I Ching and it is a symbol system used to identify order in chance events. You can read about it more over here. Andy adds a hexagram generator into the watch so that you can generate your own future. It is rather confusion and would require an understanding of I Ching.

James Bond 007 & the Seiko Digital Watch

When you think of 007’s marvelous spy gadgetry, what comes to mind? It’d have to be the multi-purpose wristwatch–a facade cloaking a laser, poison dart or explosive underneath. The Rolex Submariner is probably the recognizable Bond accessory, but some very sexy Seikos graced the screen during the Roger Moore years.
