I love checking out concept gadgets, mostly because it reminds me of what's possible. One company I can't get enough of in general is TokyoFlash, who are widely known for their über-geeky binary watches, but they're churning out the concept Bluetooth devices like there's no tomorrow these days. I've rounded up a few of my favorites, but give them a once-over yourself and tell me which one you'd take out for a test drive!
I don't try and hide the fact that I love TokyoFlash binary watches, and I'm equally intrigued by the Bluetooth receiver concepts they've been pumping out on their blog lately. This one entitled Future Natural is a wireless receiver coming in either a sleek light and dark wood, or mirrored finish. All finishes are transparent, so you can check the time from LED lights that are nestled under the cover.
To pick up your calls, just attach your microphone-enabled earphones (like you get with your iPhone or BlackBerry), or talk aloud with its own integrated speaker and mic. This concept also features email and text alerts so you can leave your phone safely in your bag. I love it, but what do you think?
Thankfully, I have a gadget guy of my own at home, so this gift guide should be a breeze to present.
It seems there can never be enough trinkets and goodies of the electronic persuasion under the tree, no matter how useless some of them may seem. Does your guy really need a dark room projector? Probably not, but this is Christmas — the perfect time to give the ultimate geeky gift someone would never buy for himself.
Check out my picks for the gadget guy in the widget below, then swing by HolidaySugar for even more gift giving inspiration.
My obvious obsession with all things Japan continues. I have been salivating over the TokyoFlash collection of watches since forever. I may just have to break down and get one for myself, or give one to my BF as an excuse to check one out in real life so I can stop gazing at the web page, which is obviously not very satisfying. Although they aren't very girly, TokyoFlash LED watches are the epitome of geek. I mean, who wouldn't want a shiny futuristic watch that you have to decode to read? Can't you just see Tony Stark sporting this Q Version ($160) model? I know I can. Check out some other super chic LED watches from TokyoFlash in the slideshow!
