The features of the watch, as well as the desires of the brand’s creators, made a strong case for the company to develop its own movement. The first in a long series… Beyond aesthetic research and casing, Hautlence applies its watch making creativity in the mechanism; thus paving the way for new concepts in reading time.

Due to an instinctive means of telling time, this unique timepiece displays civil time thanks to the use of jumping hours and retrograde minutes. The jumping hour of the Hautlence watch is characterized by the use of a decorated jumping disc with an aperture in which the hour numeral, inscribed on a fixed dial, is visible.

The retrograde minute is a more classic complication that, like the hour disc, has discontinuous functioning features, which incurred additional complex mechanical problems that needed to be resolved. The combination of these two complications and the resolution of the problems we were faced with this watch were dealt with concurrently, in an original way covered by a patent. The device optimizes energy consumption and the torque setting on the movement. This whole device is perfectly original and a true evolution in the complex world of watch making mechanics.

Got to get me one of these

The oasis brings a rejuvenating water-fall environment to the private dwelling. It offers a rush of soothing water poured out over the body in a standing, sitting, or reclined position. It can be used within an interior or exterior setting as freestanding object, and modifications allow it to be built into surrounding walls, or recessed into the ground plane where it can be filled with water.

so simple that it works for me
Simple, yet amazing concept, an idea of a small handheld device with the main and only function to show the time. But to show it personalized. We all share the same time pattern, but for each of us every second is unique like no other. Moments in our time table are particularly personal, so our time indication should also be personal. By the series of pictorial icons with many variations on every life situation, and with the ability to create your own, the Plus Watch becomes your every day accessory. You just choose the time and associate it with the icon as simple as never before, no matter what operation system you use. With five small grayscale displays connected, each with 32×32 pixels resolution, mini usb port, and silicone wristlet, the Plus Watch is nothing more than the perfect time indicator.Designer: Qixen-P Design Thanks Marry T!

So Cool, no luminous, no smart….

The Snug is an extremely simple projector, which has no buttons, switches or wires. Taking advantage of laser projection and network homeplug technology, Snug solved the most annoying cable management problem. Snug has a standard bulb connector that allows the user to fix the projector into the ceiling easily. Plug in the homeplug network module that transfer high definition AV content through the powerline and it is ready to operate. Snug is a revolution of projector.

I could see how this could be usefull for the computer Techs

memory_infinite2_small.jpegmemory_infinite_small.jpeg

Memory Infinite is a design concept by Vicky Wei. Instead of having to use multiple USB flash drives when one fills up, this flash drive has a female connector on one end and male on the other. When more storage is needed you simply attach another Memory Infinite flash drive.

No matter how many times soldiers and marines say they’re not interested, there’s always someone trying to wrap them up in heavier, hotter, more uncomfortable armor.

Reader AS points to the latest culprit: MTek Weapon Systems, which is pushing Stormtrooper-esque “facial armor” for our troops.

The mask weighs 1.3 pounds, is compatible with ballistic eyewear, and will stop a bullet from a .44 magnum. So far, there seems to be one marine corporal using the thing in Iraq. We’ll see if more emerge.

But I am preety sure i have seen this in the gaming franchises or in a japanimation?
