Chromochrome Clock and Light

Here’s a bedside light and clock that looks like something the infamous TokyoFlash would come up with. It’s a clock represented by different colored lights. You read the clock left to right and each different color is a specific number. I’m sure with a little training, you could get it down pat but imagine waking up at 3:27 AM trying ...

3-D Maze Ball Looks Trippy

After reading the description of this maze, I’m still not sure I entirely understand it: Have puzzles gone pass? With the advent and subsequent mainstreaming of videogames caused physical toys to go by the wayside? What do you get when you multiply six by nine? The answer to the first two questions is “No,” and the last, “42.” What? I’m ...

Tokyo Flash’s 10 Pack Abdominal Watch

Yet another watch from Tokyo Flash that requires a mathematical formula just to tell time. This is no joke. Telling time on a watch modeled after my bitchin’ 10 pack of abs shouldn’t be a problem so long as you remember what each color of the transitioning LEDs represents. Named the Kisai Tenmetsu, this Tokyo Flash watch joins the club ...

Optimus Prime Alarm Clock With Projector

In my younger and more vulnerable years, I owned many action figures from the hit TV show Transformers. Of course, in those years we didn’t have access to bitchin’ projector clocks with Optimus Prime’s head mounted for show such as this one. This decapitated Optimus Prime voices your favorite phrases from the show, like “Autobots transform and roll out.” You’ll ...

Alarm Clock That Reminds Me Of My Ex

This is exactly what I need: an alarm clock that throws a tantrum, immediately awakening me from any dream I’m having, no matter how provocative. It’s the kind of clock that’d give any elderly person sleeping beside it a heart attack. This isn’t that bullshit Da Vinci Alarm clock, either. It actually tells time. Five minutes before the alarm goes ...

Rim Clock

Maybe I have issues but I get really excited over beautifully-designed clocks. Maybe it’s the fact that time is so precious, it must be treated with great artistic respect. Maybe I just took too much X in my teens. Who knows. One thing is for sure: The Rim Clock from Jansen Lye will look beautiful in any room. The pointed ...

Negative: The Latest From TokyoFlash

We can never get enough of these TokyoFlash watches. The company is notorious for making watches that are nearly impossible to read, such as the Infection or the Eleeno E3. Thankfully, it’s newest creation, the Negative, is actually readable. That’s because it presents the time normally, except what makes this watch special is its display of time in negative space. ...

Time Tracking of Yesteryear Finds New Light

Apparently, NXT STEP blog reader DTAAX’s watch must have broke, which would explain why he designed this LEGO sundial. This DIY finds a new way to tell time the old way. It was built using the LEGO NTX platform (plus a PDA for trigonometric functions) using a slew of light and touch sensors, allowing the sundial to perform like any ...
