TokyoFlash's new Kisai On Air watch uses an always-on touchscreen LCD to display the time; the "minute hand" points to the hour and displays the minutes. The watch has a bunch of fun animations and some limited customizability, too.
A multi-functional watch design, Kisai On Air features touch screen technology and displays the time and date. It also has an alarm mode and animation.
The touch screen display has four hot-zones (top, bottom, left, right) which you can simply touch with your finger to change mode; time, date, alarm, light up.
Holding your finger in place for a few seconds allows you to customise; hold your finger over the alarm zone to set the alarm, hold it over the time zone to set the time. It's intuitive, simple and fun to operate.
After 15 seconds the screen will lock to prevent accidental input, however the LED light up function can always be operated. To unlock the display, simply swipe your finger across the screen from left to right. Please see the video at the bottom of the page to see this in action.

I had no idea.” The role-playing bug had bitten him, but fantasy wasn’t his genre. So that same year, he started writing a game set in a modern world, the spy game that would become Top Secret.
Janelle Shane trained a recurrent neural network with a data-set of more than 2000 ancient proverbs and asked it to think up its own: “A fox smells it better than a fool’s for a day.”
