The Margot watch is a limited edition

“He loves me… He loves me not,” or the Daisy Oracle is a game of pulling petals off a flower, usually a daisy, while intoning the formula that dates back to at least the 15th century as a way of finding out if someone’s love is true. In a fusing of the 21st and the 18th centuries, Christophe Claret takes a page out of the golden age of automata and turns the game into a miniature automaton version that fits into a lady’s wristwatch. Called the Margot, we had a look at it at Baselworld 2014 and its mechanism that “predicts” true love based on the old game of plucking daisies.  Read More

The Vicenterra Luna volume 1 has a 45-jewel movement

The Earth and Moon are, we’re reliably informed, three-dimensional, so why should the Moon-phase dial on your upmarket wristwatch be flat? At Baselworld 2014, Swiss watchmaker Vicenterra took up the challenge to rectify this with its Luna volume 1, which shows the Earth and Moon as rotating three-dimensional spheres as part of its set of complications.  Read More

The Inox rugged watch from Victorinox

Victorinox Swiss Army has launched a new watch collection at this year's Baselworld in Switzerland. Pitched as a rugged companion for life, the Inox comes with the knowledge that it has survived over a hundred toughness tests, including being run over by a tank, dropped onto concrete, exposed to temperature extremes and thrown into the middle of a sandstorm for a couple of hours.  Read More

The Tourbillon Astronomique was displayed at Baselworld

It’s easy to get dismissive of upmarket astronomical watches in this age of cheap digital apps, but it’s still impressive to see what can achieved with mechanical movements – and how that can still sometimes put the apps to shame. For example, we got a look at Swiss watch maker Antoine Martin’s Tourbillon Astronomique watch at Baselworld this week, which can not only tell what time the Sun will rise and set at, but even has a few tricks that you won’t find at the app store.  Read More

LaserEyes in 'burning mode'

Last year, German laser weapons hobbyist Patrick Priebe built a working replica of Ironman's laser gauntlet. Now, he's paid another visit to the world of superheroes, creating his own take on the "energy beam"-emitting eyewear worn by the X-Men's Cyclops.  Read More

The SmartMio is an EMS device that connects to a smartphone for ease of use

Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is nothing new. In fact, we've covered it before with products like Osim's USB-powered uPixie. SmartMio is the latest product to use it, but it's doing so with some twists. Most notable of these is the inclusion of Bluetooth to connect with smartphones for better control, and use while on the go.  Read More

Wearable baby monitors certainly appear an emerging trend, with recent efforts including a bodysuit packed with sensors and a smart sock to track your baby's vital signs. Taking yet another approach is US-based inventor Arturas Vaitaitis, whose Monbaby smart button can be attached to any item of clothing to monitor and provide analysis of your baby's sleeping patterns.  Read More

The HeadWatch seeks to create a bridge between the smartwatch and the Bluetooth headset

We knew wearable technology was going to get weird eventually, but we didn't expect it to get this weird, this fast. The HeadWatch is smartwatch design with a twist – a touchscreen body that pops off and doubles as a headset. Wearers get the usual smartwatch notifications, but they can also stick the watch in their ears to take calls.  Read More
