'Fire' lights up your wrist, but probably not your life
If you have trouble telling the time with the Fire from Tokyoflash, at least you're sure to be a conversation piece.
Tokyoflash, which previously brought us such aptly named wristwatches as the Fire. But not to fret: if you have trouble telling the time with this thing (which you almost certainly will), at least you'll be a conversation piece., has alerted us to its latest vexing timepiece, the
The sci-fi-looking cuff, which weighs about a tenth of a pound, features plastic wrapped around a sheet of polished stainless steel with holes drilled into it. Beneath each hole are LEDs that represent units of time. Yellow LEDs indicate hours 1-12, red LEDs indicate groups of 10 minutes, and green LEDs indicate single minutes 1-9. Following all that?
