Have you ever seen  such a watch?
By the time you figure out what time this watch says, it will be that time tomorrow. Tokyoflash, who makes some very hip trendy watches, has a new e-Paper watch that they are getting a bit crazy with. The sleek concept watch incorporates a slick eInk face that wraps around half of the band. They have modeled four different methods of displaying the time and date that may give you a migraine as you try to learn the system. Some of their watches are binary-ish and some are downright bizarre. Our favorite is the one that shows the numerals in the negative space formed by random numbers.
This sleek watch stands out from many other offerings from Tokyoflash in that it is not overly gaudy. The company also plans to allow it to be charged by USB. The large display will require more than just a simple watch battery to run. The only other major problem is that the binary watch only shows the time with a button press. They are great fashion accessories and can be great for showing off your geek cred but they take effort to read and both hands. They are still feeling out their concepts so guessing on a price range or release would be premature. If you can’t wait to have an e-Ink watch you can find a few here.

USB Owl Watches

Have you ever dreamed such a usb watch?

Sometimes I wonder who was the first person to start the “random USB gadget” trend, because they just seem to be getting stranger and stranger every day. Similar to the humping dogs, Thumbs Up UK’s new USB Owl seems to serve no purpose other than to simply entertain you.

The Owl moves his head, blinks his eyes, and even flaps his wings. He comes with a clip that allows him to perch atop your monitor and drive you crazy and also has an optional tree stump that he can roost on should you prefer it. It’s too bad he can’t be remote controlled or had a camera built in, as this would be great to perch on the top of your cubicle at work and make people feel that there is always someone watching them. Make sure you check out the video for the full effect. It will be available in May for about $25. Video demo after the jump.

Lovely owl ,lovely life!
