Nov 15 2007Ring Watch Uses Magnetism Instead of LCD


Okay ladies (and men who like wearing jewelry), here comes a novel ring concept by Charles Windlin, which loosely reminds me of this bad boy. It's a ring watch that uses 1,400 metal balls to tell the time. Each ball has a decorative and magnetic side, and is electrically activated to show the appropriate side to either tell the time or display a message. The creator claims that the ring uses far less energy than an LCD display. You know what else uses far less energy than an LCD display? A sundial. Except when you have to use a flashlight to read it at night. Then you're using batteries.

I agree, kinda like it and might actually wear it

that watch is showing 13:57 i thought clocks only go to 12:59 and then back to 1:00, what a dumb clock

phil maestas:
Are you that stupid for real or are you just joking?

Thank you soooo much for the trackback! :)

#3, lol, wow. #4, he's gotta be joking, I don't think there's anyone's that stupid. Either way, It's a neat concept.

I would like to wrap my member with this, and then note the time once the circulation was cut off.

I want to buy it, anyone know where I can get it and/or how much it costs? Is it waterproof??

I would buy it. don't like wearing a watch, this might be a good alternative. =)
