The Kisai Satellite X LED Watch could be the work of aliens

We’re all interested in the paranormal or the unusual, and can’t help but do a double take when we see something that doesn’t fit our idea of “normal”. While we could get into the question of what the true definition of normal is, we’ll save it for another day. There’s a certain way we’re used to seeing things, and while some are content with the way things are, others want to challenge the common thought process.

Watches from TokyoFlash have always been good about boggling minds and fighting the boring repetition of a regular 12 hour clock face. They want to be fashionable, and make you think outside the box to read the time. You may get used to it after a while, but to the people around you it will be an object of mystery and confusion. The most recent addition to the TokyoFlash family is the Kisai Satellite X Watch. This watch uses three vivid LED rings behind a dark mineral crystal lens to show you the time.

The top ring represents your hours, the larger middle ring will show you five minute increments, and the bottom ring is 4 minute increments to give you the exact time. Pressing the button on the side will activate the LEDs to flash for a brief period. There is an animation mode which will have the LEDs flash in a slow circle every fifteen minutes should you choose to turn it on. There are grooves on the face of the watch that flow seamlessly onto the strap of the watch which offset the circular patterns. This metallic watch is available in black with either red or blue LEDs at a price point of $139.

Available for purchase on TokyoFlash

G-Project introduces the G-DROP speaker

It does look as though when it comes to waterproof speakers, as well as speakers that are capable of taking a fair beating before it succumbs to being spoilt, there is a fast growing market for this niche, going to show just how music has become such an integral part of our lives, so much so that we would want to make sure that our music can be brought with us wherever we go, and also to play them back – while having others listen to the well versed tracks of ours, too. G-Project understands this, which is why they have come up with the G-DROP speaker for the adventurous masses.

The G-DROP speaker has been described to be a powerful, rugged, waterproof Bluetooth speaker that has been specially designed to be able to embark on just about any adventure with you, regardless of whether it will be wet or dry. The G-DROP will come with an asking price of $50 a pop, which is not too much when you take into consideration the kind of features and capabilities with which it comes with.

It does not matter whether you are going to lounge by the pool or to spend plenty of time in the snow, the G-DROP speaker would be at home with outdoor enthusiasts, as it enables folks to take their favorite tunes with them, whether they happen to be sitting on the sidelines or to remain right smack in the middle of all the action. It will boast of an IPX7 rating, allowing the G-DROP speaker to remain submerged in water at a depth of one meter for half an hour, and yet emerge unscathed and still working perfectly.

Not only that, it is more durable that some of us humans in extreme temperatures, working just fine as long as it remains within the -14°F to 122°F temperature band, making it the ideal tool to bring with you regardless of whether it is summer or winter.

It will come with a substantial 2.5” driver, a passive bass radiator and MAXX Audio digital sound processing capability for optimum bass performance. As for its build, you can expect it to last thanks to its double-wall housing and soft-to-the-touch elastomer which wraps around the unit and sealed port covers.

Close Sisters Bra changes color when your BFF touches you

Who would have thought that something as intimate as the bra would eventually end up with its very own technological boost? We have seen that with the Sensoria Fitness Bra some time last year which was capable of monitoring one’s heart rate, and this time around, one would be presented with something that is more fashionable and yet relies on technology to attract attention to itself. As to whether it will be able to take off or not, that remains to be seen. I am referring to the Close Sisters Bra by Triumph, a lingerie maker from Japan.

One can more or less say that the Close Sisters Bra must have somehow been inspired by Disney’s “Frozen” movie, where it boasts two princesses in the cartoon that happen to be BFFs – and love each other deeply. With the Close Sisters Bra, it will require a couple of ladies to touch each other – while wearing their very own Close Sisters Bra of course, in order to have the high tech bra actually change colors and patterns.

In fact, the models wearing the Close Sisters Bra also demonstrated how it worked by bumping their hips against one another, and this close physical proximity resulted in the electronic paper that make up the bras to change their respective colors. Apart from that, the bras will also remember their ancient calling – by coming with tiny padded pink hearts which will be able to include additional bust volume.

This is not Triumph’s effort entirely, as they have worked alongside a company known as Fashion Entertainments in order to come up with these prototype bras. Unfortunately for the masses who might think that these bras would be fun whenever there is a sleepover with your BFFs, the Close Sisters Bra will not go on sale according to Triumph, as they remain a proof of concept. Hence, if you would like to own a pair, it is time you brush up on your engineering knowledge, get in some DIY skills, and obtain the relevant material such as a color-changing electronic paper, among others.

The Onyx is the closest we’ve got to a Star Trek communicator badge

We all have different groups of friends that we like to keep in contact with. Most of the time we use messenger apps or texting to stay in the loop with each other, but we don’t always have the chance to pull out our phone, open an app, and type out a message. If you prefer voice messages, but don’t want to call your friends for every little thing, why not get a communicator like the ones we’ve seen in Star Trek?

If you think they don’t exist, you’d be very wrong. The Onyx from OnBeep gives you instant group communication from anywhere you have Wifi or cellular access. Yes, it is tied to your phone and you do have to pair it with an app, but it is a brilliant idea. While this does resemble the concept of a walkie talkie, it basically removes the limited range aspect. You can be anywhere in the world, and would only have to hit a button to receive instant access to all of your friends.

This is compatible with Android 4.1 and above, the iPod touch, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus, running iOS 7 or above. It runs off of a lithium polymer battery which recharges via microUSB, giving you twelve hours of standby time, and should last through a normal day of use. There is a headphone jack, so you don’t have to worry about your conversation being broadcast to the world. One of these will cost you $99, or you can pay $195 and get a pair for you and a friend.

Available for pre-order on OnBeep

Wooden Mechanical Clock Kit tells the time in classical style

There is just something about wood that oozes with class, especially when it comes to making use of it in different forms – such as a wooden trim in a luxury car, or perhaps some wooden panels in your home that provide a far warmer look. When it comes to telling the time, there has been wooden clocks that we have looked at in the past, but the $69.99 Wooden Mechanical Clock Kit does seem to beat them all.

With the Wooden Mechanical Clock Kit, you would best put on your best DIY cap, since you would be required to build it yourself. How does it work? For starters, it will take advantage of the integrated pendulum and weight in order to keep track of time. This is definitely an advanced kit that you might want to consider for the serious DIY horologist, especially taking note that Christmas is right around the corner. You would need to roll up those sleeves of yours, and get involved with gluing, cutting and greasing your gears in order to end up with a fully-functional, wooden pendulum clock that tells the time, although you are required to wind it up from time to time.

Stelle Audio reveals Mini-Clutch Speaker

Fashion and technology do go down well together, make no mistake about it. After all, the upcoming Apple Watch looks set to be a top selling blockbuster despite the rather high entry price that many expect it to come with (with a $5,000 edition in the pipeline as well, or so we have heard), which brings us to the case of this new kind of wearable technology that is not only stylish, but also functional to boot. I am referring to Stellé Audio’s new Mini-Clutch Speaker, which is a spanking new carry-all which will be able to take on new meaning with clutch, wireless speaker and speakerphone , all rolled into one.

How does the Mini-Clutch Speaker work? First of all, it will incorporate a wireless speaker as well as a speakerphone, where it can be opened up in order to show off a mirror and has adequate amount of room for daily essentials. It can be deemed to be the perfect conversation-starting accessory when it comes to parties, weekend getaways or nights out. Your ears too, will definitely be able to enjoy the kind of tunes that the lightweight Mini-Clutch streams audio sans wires, thanks to high-quality Bluetooth that brings the party and music wherever you go.

For those who think that they might have seen the Mini-Clutch Speaker idea somewhere before, this is because it predecessor, the Clutch Speaker, has been designed to be an official accessory in Rebecca Minkoff’s spring 2013 Collection. Ever since then, Stellé Audio has continued to grow from strength to strength when it comes to delivering groundbreaking wireless audio products where women are concerned, including the DwellStudio Pillar Wireless Speaker as well as the brand new Mini-Clutch.

Of course, this is going to be one of the more expensive portable speakers around, since you can choose from the Dazzling Diamond model at $199 which is ideal for a fancy night out or to add some bling to your look, while the $149 Blue Love is a little bit less outlandish and grand, thanks to its fun graffiti-inspired design that is ideal for teens and creatives. Apart from that, there is also the $149 Metallic Purple that sports gold accents, making it ideal for everyday use.

Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB Mice revealed

Gaming peripherals are dime a dozen out there in the market, but which particular model do you pick when it comes to making a purchase? Of course, brand loyalty does amount to something, but there are times when one would make a decision purely based on getting the best amount of bang for one’s hard earned buck. Having said that, Corsair has just revealed their Sabre RGB Mice that will come with a choice of either optical or laser sensors.

The Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB Mice has been specially designed after obtaining input from veteran pro gamers, where the new gaming peripherals have been engineered with a new sleek, ergonomic form factor, all built into an extremely light chassis so that it can deliver quick, fluid and precise movements – regardless of how long of a marathon gaming session you are having at the moment.

Apart from that, there will also be advanced CUE software which enables gamers to be able to fine-tune their performance characteristics such as DPI, acceleration, and smoothing, not to mention having the ability to customize button assignments and macros for optimal gameplay. The two mice will also come with four-zone illumination with up to 16.8 million customizable colors, which makes them the perfect companion to other Corsair gaming products, including the likes of the Corsair Gaming K70, K95, or K65 RGB mechanical keyboards, and the Corsair Gaming H1500 and H2100 gaming headsets.

The optical sensor has a resolution of 6400 DPI, while the laser sensor model delivers 8200 DPI alongside ultra-precise tracking on just about any surface out there. Of course, it goes without saying that the Sabre RGB Laser mouse would be a wee bit pricier at $69.99 each, while the Sabre RGB Optical Mouse would set one back by $59.99. If you are a hardcore gamer, which of the two would you decide on while being in the market for a new mouse?

HP Omen notebook delivers high end PC gaming on the move

I am quite sure that there is a fair number of gamers out there who probably figure out that there really is no substitute when it comes to PC gaming – consoles are not quite up to the mark, especially when it comes to genres like CRPGs, while FPS games are always played in a more accurate manner using a mouse and a keyboard. However, there has been quite a fair number of decent attempts in the past by the like of MSI to roll out gaming notebooks, and this is one particular market that HP too, would like to explore – what with their latest HP Omen notebook.

The HP Omen is touted to be a gaming machine which will merge performance, portability and style – all rolled into a single package that has been specially designed for gamers. After all, which gamer would like to play and not win? Surely all of them participate in it in order to come out tops, and the HP Omen intends to be the tool and platform to fulfill that wish.

Expect the HP Omen to be stutter-free, as it is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M and quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, accompanied by a 15.6″ diagonal, 1080p touch-enabled display, a 128GB SSD for faster loading times (with options for 256GB and 512GB, depending on your budget), apart from a choice of either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. As for your graphics memory, you can opt for 2GB or 4GB.

HP has also concentrate on what is on the outside, where its industrial design has been specially concentrated around gaming. Since heat tends to be the enemy of performance, the has been engineered from the ground up in order to manage thermals. There are dual fans that will keep the entire chassis nice and cool as it pushes hot air through exhaust fans at the rear of the system, allowing you to enjoy marathon gaming sessions without having it heat up.

All in all, the HP Omen will measure 19.9mm thin and tip the scales at 4.68lbs, sporting a starting price of $1,499.99 onward.

Hoverkraft Levitating Construction Challenge offers a fun build-and-balance game

When it comes to being fun and imaginative, there is no need to pile on the work. After all, wasn’t it Jack who ended up being a dull boy after having nothing else to do but work? Having said that, too much play on the other end of the extreme is not too good, either. The $29.99 Hoverkraft Levitating Construction Challenge offers not only a good learning experience, it is also a futuristic building and balancing game.

You will be able to play with it alone – which makes it great for those with just one child in the family, and it is also good for two players – hence siblings will have yet another avenue to exhibit their rivalry. Regardless, just make sure that the child(ren) are aged 8 and above. This particular purchase would update and old-school building game by providing a twist, as players take turns to stack pieces on a platform. The catch is, this particular platform would levitate via magnetic repulsion, and the winner would be the last player to place a block without causing the platform to tumble. Not only that, this is a fast game – better than Candy Crush, as it takes anywhere from 30 seconds, all the way to 5 minutes.

Games with an updated twist like Space Invaders Jenga are always well worth the effort to check it out.
