I left my hostel at about 5:30PM in order to catch the last bus to the airport. For some reason, all buses stop at 6AM, making it quite difficult to get around Saigon.

I seem to remember there being some bone conduction headphones on the market a few years back, but these are the first that I’ve come across in a while. These headphones look like an interesting middle ground between headphones and earphones.

Tokyoflash Kisai Night Vision Wood LED Watch: Burn After Reading

Apparently, anything that’s made out of wood is good. This is also true of Tokyoflash’s new watch, which appears to be encased completely in wood. It’s all rustic, and ready to go camping!
