Microsoft is reportedly joining the (quickly growing) party of companies developing a smar...

Come one, come all – step right up! Make your own smartwatch! Apple’s doing it, Samsung’s doing it, and so can you! Okay, maybe it isn’t quite that common, but it’s almost comical how many big companies are reportedly working on smartwatches. The latest company, Microsoft, knows a thing or two about being late to the party ... maybe it wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again.  Read More

The Time Traveler uses famous landmarks to tell the time in 16 different time zones

World-time functions have been available on digital watches at the press of a stud for over 30 years, but for world weary travelers touching down in a new time zone sometimes even that might be too much effort. To fill this admittedly niche market, Mr. Jones Watches has come up with its Time Traveler watch, which allows you to see at a glance what time it is in 16 different time zones – provided you’re good at recognizing landmarks.  Read More

The Ressence Type 3 watch's fluid-filled display gives its mechanical indications a two-di...

On a regular analog watch, there’s a small pocket of air between the face of the watch and the inside surface of the crystal. On his new Ressence Type 3 watch, however, Belgian designer Benoit Mintiens has filled that space with a clear refractive fluid. As a result, its revolving indications appear to be projected right onto its domed crystal. You could almost think of it as the Magic 8 Ball of high-end timepieces.  Read More

Trego is a versatile iPad case and bag

Recently, we covered a rather odd way of wearing your iPad called the iWorm. Now, a new product called Trego is entering the market, and while it's still a little odd looking, it certainly appears to be much more functional. Instead of wrapping around your shoulders like some kind of a boa constrictor, this product has users wearing their iPad in a more traditional-looking bag.  Read More

Though technically smart glasses, Epiphany Eyewear isn't nearly as smart as Google Glass

Are you pulling your hair out waiting for Google Glass to launch? One company has an alternative that you can pre-order right now. There is, however, a big catch. Actually, make that several big catches – as the device’s limitations might be too numerous for you to bother.  Read More

Google's competitor in China, Baidu, is reportedly making its own Google Glass competitor ...

Five years ago, it was easier for a company to sneak a revolutionary tech product onto the market. Today the whole world is nervously watching. Anything that looks like it could be the next big thing attracts a crowd of copycats. Take, for example, Google Glass. Unproven though it is (not to mention months away from release), Google’s search rival in China, Baidu, is reportedly prepping its own Glass competitor.  Read More

The backpack-mounted Enhanced Mapping and Positioning System (EMAPS), being tried out aboa...

Mapping environmental threats in GPS-inaccessible locations – such as underground installations, or the passageways of ships – can certainly pose some challenges. While there are robotic systems that can do the job, robots aren’t necessarily the best choice for cramped quarters or uneven terrain. That’s why a team of scientists at Johns Hopkins University have developed the backpack-mounted Enhanced Mapping and Positioning System ... or EMAPS.  Read More

Using the iWorm with a tablet

Remember that iArm photo that swept around the Internet a while back? It featured an individual essentially wearing their tablet on their arm and looking at it in much the same way one would look at a wristwatch. Turns out, someone took that picture to heart, and is attempting to create a product with a similar function called the iWorm. However, instead of wearing the tablet on the user's arm, this one goes over the user's shoulders.  Read More

The Triggerfish Bronze A2 wristwatch from Kaventsmann Uhren is tough enough to survive pre...

Smart watches may be poised to become the next "must-have" gadget for tech-enthusiasts, but we'll be surprised if rumored offerings from the likes of Samsung and Apple arrive with a build-quality to match the Triggerfish Bronze A2. This latest wristwatch from German designer Kaventsmann Uhren has been successfully tested at pressures up to 300 bar and has even survived a detonation of C-4 explosives with barely a scratch.  Read More

Samsung VP Lee Young Hee confirmed that his company is working on a smart watch (wrist ima...

Now that Apple’s TV set appears to be anything but “imminent,” we expect the company’s next big innovation to be a wearable wrist computer. But Apple’s fierce rival, Samsung, wants the world to know that it too is cooking up some wearable fun, in the form of a Samsung smart watch.  Read More
