Despite the fact that they're, generally, frustratingly difficult to tell the time from, I do have a soft spot for Tokyoflash watches. One of the company's more recent designs, the Oberon, has been diving in and out of stock for a while now, but they're celebrating a return to availability with the launch of a new, stainless steel variant. The S-Mode Oberon SS uses three rings of blue LEDs to indicate date and time.

Microsoft are quietly pulling the plug on their SPOT watch project, which aimed to bring real-time weather and schedule updates to the wrists of the populace. According to Microsoft's Jon Canan, the technology will no longer be built into any new watches, and the most recent examples have sold out. However, the MSN Direct service itself will continue, meaning anybody still wanting to use their SPOT watch will be able to for the foreseeable future.

Well, if you thought the TokyoFlash watches made you look nerdy, then clearly you underestimated geekdom. This new LED watch is made by Nate True and requires you to swing your arm like a madman to see the time.

It really is a light up nightmare to read. Almost as bad as some of the Tokyo Flash watches, I think their needs to be a board that certifies these watches with difficulty levels based on how hard they are to read.

Please excuse my cheesy little binary joke, but this watch will work with both types of people, those that can read binary and those that can’t as the 42-LED array is arranged in such a way that you can choose to tell time in binary or other methods. Those other methods include hour centric or minute centric, basically the watch will print out the number of the minute or the hour kind of like your old high school’s score board.

FludWatches TableTurns watch for the hip-hop fan in you

I am a big fan of hip-hop, not just the gangster rap, but the entire culture surrounding all the different versions of hip-hop from the old school to the underground from the west coast to the east coast, I love all the music. But almost as much as I like the music, I like the art forms within the society including graffiti and turntablism.
