This is the first generation prototype that has some definite similarities to the science fiction floating cycles seen in the Lucas film. It is not currently in production, but Chris hopes to bring them to market in about a year. The bike is classified as an ultralite, so there is currently no need of a pilot’s license to operate one.

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.

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.

It will get the bottle of $5 port you picked up at the local liquor store open with minimal bits of cork in the drink. It won't open your wine with much style or say, "I'm rich" like this fancy corkscrew from Core-38.
