Strange Watches Becoming Norm

I don’t know what motovates the current craze over all these futuristic LED watches that have been popping up all over the place lately! Andy reported last week on the ODM pixel watches, Now I’m here to continue the trend with an offering from TokyoFlash, the Shinshoku.

Shinshoku Watch

This slick timepiece features a single adjustable metal band with drilled holes on the face, and 29 powerful LEDs arranged in a series of dots that represent hours and minutes. It takes only a minute or two to learn the LED arrangement to read the time correctly, and you’re set!

I personally like this designer LED watch over all the others I’ve seen lately. It just has that overall metallic futuristic feel to it ;)

DIY Linux Hack – Xeyes

Here’s a cool do-it-yourself hack. It’s a set of eyes made of pizza boxes you place in your window, the eyes can rotate via servos on the backside, the servos are controlled by a simple motion detector that is also in the window. It all comes together using Linux’ Xeyes applet.

When someone walks or drives by the window, the eyes are ‘aware’ of their presence and will track movement.
