James Bond's Laser-Cutting Watch Is Finally A Reality

Thanks to some clever special effects, the gadgets that Q creates for James Bond and other MI6 agents are often well ahead of their time.

You Can Never Really Be Late With A Flux Capacitor Watch

You can cross a smartwatch off your wish list this holiday season now that ThinkGeek has revealed this utterly amazing compact Flux Capacitor Watch that really fluxes.

The Random Scribbles On This Watch Face Actually Do Tell The Time

If you’re a fan of obscure and hard-to-read watch faces, you’ve just found another addition to your collection.

It might seem like a non-functional fashion accessory, but if you look closely you’ll see those seemingly random scribbles actually do display the time.

Of Course This Six-Figure Watch Was Inspired By A Space Captain Cartoon

You can say what you will about the subdued stylings of the Apple Watch, but deep down we’re probably all a little glad it perfectly married form and function — a balance that not all watch makers strive for. MB&F has just revealed its latest creation, the HM6 Space Pirate that more than lives up to its moniker, at least when it comes to styling.


HP's Gaudy Smartwatch Will Be Surprisingly Affordable

Here’s our first detailed look at the Hewlett-Packard “luxury” smartwatch teased a few months ago. It’s designed to look like a fancy metal rich-guy watch, but at $US350, you won’t need to be a rich guy to buy it.

The miniaturisation of technology has hit a bit of a wall as of late, thanks to the limitations of batteries.
