    This is a video from German watchmaker Nomos Glashütte of one of their modern watches being assembled. It was a treat to watch(!), mostly because I've always been fascinated with watchmaking (and collect vintage Doxas). Everything is so small. Did you know the jewels in a wa... / Continue →

    This is Tokyoflash's latest design, the $179 Kisai Optical Illusion. Clever name. The time is always visible by training your eyes to pick out the bars that are traveling in the opposite direction as all the others. Oooooooor by cheating and pushing the touchscreen so the re... / Continue →

    This is the $90 Click Keypad watch. It was made to look like the number pad of a computer keyboard and tells the time by blinking the corresponding numbers in order. Plus you can actually click the keys if you want to pretend like you're hacking an ATM or something to impress... / Continue →

    This is a clock made entirely out of LEGO/Technic pieces and two Mindstorms NXT micro-computers. Impressive, but I once made a clock out of nothing but the sun and a stick. Just kidding, that was a forest fire, but still. Mr. Andersson...calls his clock the Time Twister. I... / Continue →

    When I think "wasted" I think every good opportunity that's every come my way. Plus binge drinking. And that, in a nutshell, is how I live my life: drunk and full of regret (plus diarrhea a lot of the time). Oh God I think I only have one beer left in the fridge aside, this ... / Continue →
