The Tiniest Tron

The Tiniest Tron

So you like strips of bright light aside blackness, greenness, or grayness, yes? You must love the heck out of this Tron: Legacy wave of items coming out as of late! I know I love it. Not because all of them are good (excluding the one I’m about to show you, of course,) but because they’ve got that one singled-out limit that ties them all together. Let’s have a group show! Someday maybe. Now check this little thing out – it’s a Tron Ring!

3D Glasses That Don't Look It

3D Glasses That Don’t Look It

It’s clear from this year’s CES how important 3D will be and that means 3D glasses. For the most part, they’re still quite “techie” looking and definitely not for the discerning fashionista. The Del Rey & Co. 3D classes draw upon the classic lexington shape, properly disguised as high-fashion specs.

ZIIIRO is a Go

ZIIIRO is a Go

There once was a watch name ZERO and after receiving a lot attention from our original feature, designer Robert Dabi decided to make it a reality as the ZIIIRO. Those of you who love his unique approach to telling time need to order one now. He’s even designed a metal mesh version if the original cuff isn’t your style. I want one, I want one bad. We’re incredibly proud of Robert’s success. Get it!

A False Arm that Doesn't Appear So

A False Arm that Doesn’t Appear So

It’s the strangest thing, and it owes a lot to the advancement of medical research and history, that while eyeglasses have been fashionable almost from their inception, prosthesis have barely evolved at all in the hundreds of years they’ve existed. This situation has been addressed by Stephan Merkle in this project, AWEAR SERIES Prosthesis. It is through artificial skin and fashion elements that cover up advanced mechanical elements that make this project the leap into normality we should have made long, long ago.

Wait a second, didn’t I just write about this? Wait no! I just wrote about something that’d go REALLY WELL with this, the Campbell version Light Cycle by Wallace Campbell!

This is no exception. Shiny lights and a unique way of looking at time? Right on.

Big Sweater, Small Sweater

Big Sweater, Small Sweater

Let me be the one to let you in on this magically amazing idea for clothing tags. What Yong Jin Kim’s idea consists of is a tiny version of whatever clothing item the tag is attached to printed on the tag that’s attached. What does this mean for you and your kids? It means that you (and/or your kids) will be able to take your entire clothing collection (provided you only buy this one brand) and dress up paper dolls the same as you to your heart’s content! Hooray!

Each Hour By A Cyclist

Each Hour By A Cyclist

To pay homage to cyclist Graeme Obree’s amazing career, Mr. Jones Watches just released “The Hour” watch. Each hour of the day is revealed by a cutout with words that have particular meaning to Mr. Obree. For example, the 12 o’clock position reveals the numbers 52.713 which is the distance Obree covered to win the world cycling championship in 1995. Inspired by Obree’s flare for the unconventional, the watch uses design cues normally reserved for children’s watches. It’s playful, allows for intricate illustrations, yet very professional and functional.
