Men’s “Star Performer”

Tokyo Flash Men's Star Performer

If you’re looking for a watch that helps you through the day and increases your good fortune while looking amazingly hip and futuristic, then we suggest you wrap the Star Performer around your wrist. Tokyo Flash has done it again, delivering a unique timepiece that is a bit cryptic to use, but so utterly stylish you’ll be willing to learn. The watch displays the functions by lighting up the number in the column that is needed. Watch lights up one number in each column to tell the time. For example, 1-2-5-3 would be 12:53. The four icons on top light up when the mode is selected. From left to right, the icons are Clock, Sun, $, and a Martini Glass. The Clock icon represents the time and if it is the evening, the Martini Glass will also light up to remind you that it’s happy hour. The Sun icon represents the day and date. The digits 1-7 on the left side are for each day (1 equals Sunday, and 7 equals Saturday), and the left two columns represent the days. The $ icon represents the year and symbolizes good fortune in the future. And if you really want to show off, use the Pimp mode light-up function to set an “optical alarm” that will turn up all the lights in a firework-like manner at whatever moment you select. The Star Performer measures 2.9 centimeters across, 5.5 centimeters long, and 1.1 centimeters thick, and features a band made of solid stainless steel (maximum wrist size 21.0 cm) with a push-button, fold-over clasp.

Alert Driver Fatigue Wrist Device

Alert Driver

Designed by Daniel Ruffle, this future concept flexible rubber device uses motion combined with reaction time to determine whether or not you are suffering from driver fatigue. The device comunicates with an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tag positioned in your car and only starts to detect whether you are tired when you are in your car. The device can be bent to fit your wrist, and has memory to stay in position, to ensure it will not fall off.

When To Wake Up?

Written by willbe in Gadgets

How often have you woken up tired, devoid of any true energy until you have had your first cup of brew? It seems that this happens simply because you woke up at the wrong time, according to your body. The Sleeptracker Watch aims to help you wake up at the time when your body is most alert and ready to start the new day. The Sleeptracker simply monitors your bodily state while you sleep. You give it a window of time that you would like to wake up, say, between 5:30-6:00 am. The watch will then wake you up at the most convenient time during that window, where your body is not in a deep slumber, but rather a “light” sleep. It even records your sleep data, for your own viewing pleasure at a later time.

Clock. Reduced version.

Written by willbe in Gadgets

Some people wants to see as many functions in their clocks as they can imagine. The others wants to see the genious and simple thing. Here You can see The One-Handed Clock. Original description follows:

“Exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, this clock is based on the design first promulgated by Benjamin Franklin. Popular in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, one-handed clocks measure time on a faceplate containing 15-minute increments between the hours, eschewing the minute-hand of traditional clocks, and are reminders of a time when technology was taking its first steps toward the lightning fast leaps of today.”

Produced by Hammacher Schlemmer.

The designer’s imagination is infinite, as time flow. But even the time is the subject to design: look what they create!
