Wrist watch Tattoo

wristwatch-tattooI don’t know if this next product is some sort of joke, but it feels like a sick one. If the photo to the left here was a video, you might see what I am talking about.

What you see in the picture is not some guy with a stamp of “01:35” on his wrist, but those numbers change as time goes by.

Yes, this is a wristwatch that is somehow implanted onto your wrist. It uses the natural kinetic energy for power, and it uses a wireless signal to sync up to an external clock to make certain your wrist is always on time.

So this an electric tattoo of a watch that is always there, no matter what. It is even planned to have the numbers glow when you hold your wrist up to view the time. I can’t help but wonder if this guy has the month and day on his left wrist.

Okay, I personally think that a device like this is some kind of unnatural relationship between technology and humanity. I mean, we’re not far off from Borg technology with something like this. It reminds me of a weird tattoo that Russell Crowe received in A Beautiful Mind.

However, I will let you, the readers, decide that. Leave a comment if you think this is an aberration of nature or just another advancement in technology.

  1. If it is real, which I doubt, a slight advancement in display tech, as you still need the external clock for time sync. Now, if this had its own internal sync it would be an improvement.

    My next question is: features? Stopwatch? Night Light? Alarm? Otherwise, what is the benefit of having this attached besides always knowing what time it is? Or am I wrong?

    But now, when someone invents this as a fully internal HUD, call me, yea?

  2. Super fake. There would be an obvious lump under his skin. You can see his veins through the numbers. So unless they created see-through electronics while I wasn’t looking, this guy or really hairy chick should get an epic slap to the mouth. Concepts are ok, as long as you are touting them as such. But, super obvious fake stuff makes me mad.
    Other faults:

    It wouldn’t be black, it would have to be illuminated by something(Radium(harmfully radioactive), Tritium, Phosphorus, a laser).

    Kinetic watches don’t provide electricity they manually wind your watch.

    You would have a giant lump under your skin from the lcd.

    Your body can act as a battery, due to the ph, but it would be very hot(and I am pretty sure having a skin watch wouldn’t be worth having the feeling of someone putting a cigerette out on your wrist perpetually).

    People are made of water, so having bare electronics under your skin would short them out(then you would just have a gross lump under your skin)

    There are very few inert materials that can be inserted under the skin and not be rejected by your body. That is why piercings have to go through fleshy tissue and not just skin. Imagine a splinter the size of a watch being rejected by your body. So, instead of a cool watch, you would have a seeping, possibly infected wound.

    But hey, what do I know. Guess, I’m just not rich enough to pay the price for cool.

  3. seems that if this product was real there would be a link to where to get it or more information about it, or at least some information about who developed it and where. that’s in other coolest gadget posts. so, don’t expect to be believed, and why are you wasting people’s time with stuff like this?

  4. But….what if you move to different time zone???? What about daylight savings time? How would you turn your clock back? By walking backwards?

  5. Personally I love the watch. I’m tired of spending my money on watches. Think of the reactions you’ll get when someone asks you for the time. This is one I would buy.

  6. oh come on, it doesn’t even crease with his wrist! fake fake fake fake fake. i could have done a better job in ms paint.

  7. it is real, just not an implant. if you look closely, you’ll see that it’s a very thin clear material with simple digital numbers. energy-wise, it would be very low-consumption so any little bit of energy it is designed to use should easily power such a small/simple function.

  8. I’m pretty sure it’s a fake, but the idea has been around in countless SF stories. Someday, it will happen, only question is when.

  9. This is very real!!!! Look up smart skin and e-ink. put those two together and you’ve got this. Trust me, we’ve been experimenting on this for some time now.
