Watchismo has two new limited edition timepieces in its collection. Tsovet watches just launched their first SVT-AT76 Swiss Automatic in aeronautic-grade black stainless steel, and only 25 will ever be produced. It's powered by the ETA 2824 caliber, one the most trusted Swiss movements ever made, which can be seen through a sapphire portal. Ingersoll watches's Dual Time Orbital Automatic has an unusual mechanism: see that mess of mechanics at the bottom of the dial? That entire component is the hour hand. The balance wheel and the rest rotates to indicate the hours, in unison with the minutes displayed just above it. Both of these watches are endangered species, and once they sell out, that's the end of the line. See them both at Watchismo.com

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has done outstanding work packing a fully capable desktop computer into a package the size of a deck cards—especially one that only costs $35. But if you already have a working laptop, why should you care? Oh, how much you have to learn. Besides operating well as a compact digital media hub, […]
