TokyoFlash's new 3D Unlimited watch is a mirror-backed LCD watch with an EL backlight that displays time as faces on a cube. I'm inordinately fond of this kind of slightly impractical time-display, a kind of unapologetic use of time as ornament in a world where we all have network-synched clocks in our pockets.
Made of high quality polished stainless steel, Kisai 3D Unlimited has an adjustable strap making it suitable for small and large wrists. It is also a light watch design and at only 8.5mm is one of the thinnest designs available from Tokyoflash Japan. The watch uses a standard CR2016 watch battery which will last at least 12 months and can be replaced easily.

For all their amazing growth over the past 25 years, the most impressive thing about the monumental rise of Amazon might be the speed and sophistication of their lightning-fast delivery network. Sometimes it doesn’t even take 24 hours for the idea you ordered to be perched right on your front porch, ready for use. The […]
You could actually watch a Tyrannosaurus Rex walk down your street right now. And no, this isn’t the latest Jurassic Park sequel. Of course, it isn’t real either, just a Google recreation of some pretty realistic looking dinosaurs transplanted right into any environment around you courtesy of augmented reality. Yet it’s just another example of […]
A guy on the Apple discussion forum started a thread titled, “Why do your Charger Cables have the lifespan of a housefly?” That question is probably enough to elicit a whole bunch of head nods from virtually everyone reading this, whether you’re an iPhone user, an Android owner or have virtually any device that needs […]
