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

The Rorschach test watch as seen in black, with the time easy to figure out once you know ...

Part of the appeal of owning a watch by design studio TokyoFlash is being in on the secret of how to actually tell the time on one of its pieces. Some of the methods are particularly cryptic, especially when looking at the user-submitted concept designs. The Rorschach test watch is no exception, with the numbers clearly visible but almost indiscernible unless you know both what you're looking for and where you should be looking.  Read More

The ColdWear demonstration sleeve

Working on arctic oil rigs and similar sites doesn't just mean putting on a jumper and a scarf. It’s arduous, exhausting and dangerous, and requires careful judgment at all times to deal with the hostile frozen environment. To make this a bit less hazardous, the Scandinavian research organization SINTEF is developing clothing equipped with sensors to monitor temperature and activity, with an eye on helping supervisors to determine when it's time for workers to stop work and return inside.  Read More
