We can't tell time anymore

New watch is one of many that confuse us

AudioCubes

We're beginning to think that some avant-garde watchmakers are pulling our legs. In just the last few weeks we've seen watches with fake radiation meters , weird LED scopes , pimped-out displays and systems that tell time backwards .

Now the latest model from AudioCubes, called the "Eleeno Graphic 9Blocks," is about as easy to understand as its name. In fact, its "time reading instructions" don't even include any text--just pictures. We think the joke's on us.
