Swipe, Zigzag and Scan

In the league of portable scanners, so far the biggest innovation has been to make them as small as a wand. Harry Potter series is long gone and its time to lose the wand and embrace the Zcan – the world’s first wireless scanner mouse. Mind you people, we said MOUSE! We have seen plenty of scanners before but not this kinda 2-in-1 Device!

The Pocket Watch Redefined

The Pocket Watch Redefined

The story goes that in the 18th and early 19th century, men typically wore pocket watches and wristwatches were meant for women. However, during combat and wartimes, it was very inconvenient to keep track of time via the pocket watch. Necessity gave birth to the legendary design of wrist strap (Also known then as “Wristlet”) that was first used to house pocket watches onto the wrists for the ease of checking time during Boer War era.

The Only Mechanical Smartwatch We Want

The Only Mechanical Smartwatch We Want

As a watch enthusiast, I have always questioned, why would men give up their sole symbol of prosperity and class to an e-ink display? The prime real estate in question – the wrist – is worthy of a mechanical creation that screams haute horology. However, my mindset changed when I came across the Kairos Mechanical Smartwatch, the World’s first and only mechanical smart watch hybrid.

Fascinated With The TESORO Watch!

Fascinated With The TESORO Watch!

Haute horology is synonymous with timeless design and a watch-making legacy that is at least half a century old. Which is why when new watchmakers step into the arena, finding firm grounds is sometimes a challenge. For sure, I’m glad that Waves Design Studio has risen up to this and designed the perfect tribute with the TESORO Automatic Mechanical Watch.

Always Take The Weather With You

Always Take The Weather With You

Love the song and the deep meaning of taking the weather with you, albeit only if it’s sunshine and cheery! The thing with weather predictions in most countries is that it’s the most unreliable news relayed on the TV Channels. For example, in my hometown if the station predicts a sunny day, be assured it’s going to rain heavy! To remove this ambiguity about the weather, we have here the StormTag – your personalized weather station.
