Pebble talks developers, apps, watchfaces and future-proofing

Pebble talks developers, apps, watchfaces and future-proofing

The first Pebble developer SDK is already in limited testing, the company has confirmed, allowing coders to create custom watchfaces for the smartwatch. Pebble is paving the way for new features that won't be in the initial feature-set, too; although it uses Bluetooth 2.1 to connect currently, there's actually a Bluetooth 4.0 chip inside for lower-power wireless in the future, and there's an ambient light sensor which developers will also be able to tap into. On the software side, there's If This Then That integration for extra flexibility. Read on for more details.

Sony discusses lack of PS3 price cut at TGS

Sony discusses lack of PS3 price cut at TGS

A lot of people were expecting Sony to announce a PS3 price cut when it took the stage at the Tokyo Game Show a few days back, but that isn't the announcement we were given. Instead, Sony announced a brand new, super-slim PS3 model, upping the internal memory (at least in the United States) but keeping prices the same. In a new interview with Engadget, SCEA VP of marketing, handhelds and home consoles John Koller explained why we didn't see a price cut on the older PS3 models despite the fact that a new one is on the scene.

Enter The Cadence Watch Company and its 4-Bit Chronograph Watch, which pairs analog hands with binary notation for a more subtle celebration of your geekiness.

Azimuth SP-1 Landship watch looks like a tank

Azimuth SP-1 Landship watch looks like a tank

I just posted up story about a strange wall clock, and then I ran across a cool wristwatch that looks like an old tank. The watch is called the Azimuth SP-1 Landship. I really like the design and it looks like an old tank from bygone eras and was, in fact, modeled after early 20th century landships, which were apparently, what tanks were called back then. The watch is really cool, and it is easy to tell time on so no Tokyoflash instructions are needed to tell someone what time it is.

Eclipsion wall clock gives approximate time only

Eclipsion wall clock gives approximate time only

The geek and design world has its fair share of odd clocks and wristwatches. Generally, the things are very hard to read, and if you need the exact time, you may be out of luck. If you only need to know that it's about 4:30 and not that it's 4:35 you can get by with most of these clocks and watches though. A new wall clock concept has surfaced from designer Jay Jiwoong Baek and its cool looking. The Eclipsion Wall clock reminds me of what a Tokyoflash wall clock might look like.

Extravagant watches are becoming a normal, every day occurrence.

The HorodronHD-01 concept watch focuses more on the aesthetic appeal of its design, instead of beautiful lights to grab a potential customer's attention.
