Our thanks go to Watchismo for sponsoring Boing Boing Blast, our once-daily delivery of headlines by email.
Watchismo just introduced a new collection from Hamilton Watches. Hamilton's Ventura was the first electric watch in the world, introduced in 1957 and reinvented today as faithful limited edition reissues and creative mechanical reinterpretations. Vintage modern designs are now the highlight, with very limited collections of the Hamilton X-01 and X-02, first inspired by the Stanley Kubrick-commissioned timepiece for the astronauts of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Some of the best designs are the simplest, like the just introduced Hamilton Intra-Matic watches' minimalist sixties aesthetic. See the entire Hamilton Watch Collection at Watchismo.

Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
