A Watch For The Extrovert

A Watch For The Extrovert

Inspired by HR Giger’s amorphous designs, the Draught Watch carries the idea of symbiosis by proposing the watch and the wearer are one. The design is a bit outside the box but nothing is ever too weird for us extroverts.

Making Your Own Clock

Making Your Own Clock

The Meaning of Time is a brilliant clock concept perfect for all those crafty people out there. It supplies the mechanism to keep time, you supply the hour and minute hands. You can use just about anything as long as it fits thru the holes. I myself am partial to a barrel of monkeys. Perhaps a picture string of ex-lovers or even more sinister ants trapped inside a glass tube.

Timezones and Ticketime

Timezones and Ticketime

Ticketime is a boarding card and a wristwatch all in one. The fringe of the ticket is made of electronic paper that could be torn off and worn as a wristwatch during the period of your travel. Before your departure, the airline company would preset the watch to the time zone of your destination. It is returned to the airline counter during your check-in upon your return flight, whilst still serving the purpose of a flight ticket.

0-60 Seconds in 60 Seconds…

Albert Einstein once said “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” Tell that to designer John Pszeniczny, he thinks time could use a turbo boost and has designed the fastest watch on Earth dubbed “F1/Carbon GMT”. Inspired by the F1 race car world and constructed of carbon fiber, Swarovski crystal, rubber and metal, this timepiece has 18 identical rubies and tells the time in everyone of the 18 cities on the 2008 F1 circuit.

Porsche Design plays Othello

Porsche Design plays Othello

Darth Vader is dead, long live Anakin Skywalker! For years black was where it’s at with Porsche Design. Now when I say “Porsche Design” I don’t mean the cars, I mean the luxury lifestyle objects inspired by Porsche (the cars). Their use of black across the design board was primarily based on the idea that black, according to Ferdinand Porsche himself “…is a non-color that expresses that heart of the object.”

A Universal Remote For Everywhere

A Universal Remote For Everywhere

We often think of a universal remote to be a device that controls any and everything. The Mulit-Chalk one-ups that axiom by controlling everywhere. Huh, what?!? It’s a soft electronic device designed to slip on anything with a button.

Easier To Pick Up Coins

Easier To Pick Up Coins

Coins haven’t really changed their function or core design since their inception. For the most part, they’re all flat and round – two characteristics that make it difficult to pick up. This coin by designer Hyun Woo Kim has a beveled edge. Apparently it’s angled just enough for easy pick ups. Hey, anything to shave a few seconds off from bending over to pick a coin up is aces in my book.

Uber Hi-tech And Just For Women Too

Uber Hi-tech And Just For Women Too

The stereotypical hi-tech watch is a very masculine item but the “i/o” concept emphasizes the watch as a fashion accessory for women. It’s designed like a cuff bracelet with a hidden digital clock. Its body features a glossy mirror surface finish that only allows light through from underneath. When not in use it shows just a dot. After touching the dot, the time magically appears! Oooooo!

Real Crystal LED Watch

Real Crystal LED Watch

Inspired by Swarovsky Signity watches, this timepiece by designer Ilya Yakovlev features a surface made from real crystals backlit by LEDs. You can increase the luminosity and change colors to suit your mood. Is it real? In the mind of Yakovlev yes. Is it expensive? I’m gonna hedge my bet and say hell yeah.
