Tokyoflash Kisai X Watch: It’s Time to Decode the Time

A lot of Japanese watches aren’t that easy to read, but this one makes things look eve more undecipherable since it’s inspired by cryptography. The watch certainly looks distinctive, but will it be legible enough to be useful in daily life?

Tokyoflash Kisai OTO Watch: A VU Meter on Your Wrist

While everyone is going a bit nutty speculating about Apple’s potential iOS smartwatch, Japanese watchmakers are pumping out their own interesting watches. This one includes a sound sensor making it work like the bar graphs on a digital VU meter.

Senseless Drawing Bot 2: Even More Senseless Than Before

Graffiti can be cool, at least when its done with artful purpose. With robots all over the place, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to make a robot that drew graffiti. The original Senseless Drawing Bot was great, but this one is even better. If you need random artwork on your walls, you can even hire this robot.

Tokyoflash Kisai Spider’s Transparent Display Lets You View Your Wrist Hairs

Just like many Japanese watches, this new one from Tokyoflash looks somewhat hard to read, but apparently after having worn the watch for a day or so, you’ll be able to easily tell the time. But it’s not just the time-telling that makes this watch unique. This is the first watch that I’ve seen that has a transparent display.

Tokyoflash Kisai Space Digits Watch: Initially Dumbfounding but Easily Readable

Some watches are easy to read, and then there are some that are just plain indecipherable. While I prefer watches that are easy to read, and that allow you to tell the time but with a glance, this new Tokyoflash is a mix of both. Once you see the way the display works, it’s really easy to tell the time but anyone else who isn’t in the know will have trouble.
