apple_2_watch

Sure, you could go out and buy the new Apple Watch, but why do that when you can build and own your very own Apple II Watch? Everyone knows that you should wait for the second generation before jumping in on an Apple product right?

Actually, this is more of a back to the future kind of thing.

The watch runs on a Teensy 3.1 processor and has a 1.8″ TFT LCD screen. It even has tiny floppy drives!

So, you want an Apple Watch but you don’t have the cash. Hiné Mizushima has got you covered with this do-it-yourself felt version. It’s a simple blue strap with a watch face made up of brightly colored buttons. I bet Steve Jobs would have loved this thing.

This creepy but cool perpetual motion watch is made by HYT watches out of black titanium and gold. As you can see, it doesn’t have traditional hands—just an awesome skull. Look closely at the outline and you can see the red liquid flows around the skull to indicate the hour. No, you don’t know the minutes, but maybe you can eliminate the need for them once you rule the world.

Smartwatches may or may not be the wave of the future, but they sure do look good with this skin. It’s for Android watches and will give you a Metal Gear Solid Codec face complete with cheesy graphics and Snake’s likeness. You can download the skin at FaceRepo and add a little gaming flair to your futuristic watch.

hrmk_xaviers_school_watch

Want to pretend you attend Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters instead of your boring Danger Room-less institution? This watch from ThinkGeek might help. The stylish design isn’t exactly subtle, but since it’s black, you can pair it with multiple outfits. It has a stainless steel caseback, a silicone band, and will not give you any sort of mutant powers.

The HDD Watch takes a tiny piece of old technology and turns it into a unique and super nerdy timepiece. It’s the work of a Frenchman named Jean Jérôme who builds the watches out of obsolete Microdrives and even gives them hands that look like reading arms. He also created a printed watchband that looks like a circuit board.

The watch is currently up for funding on indiegogo where he set a goal of raising enough cash to build 500 additional watches. He’s more than doubled his funding goal with several weeks still remaining on his campaign. You can secure a watch for about $120 and have it on your wrist sometime later this month.

laser

You can channel your inner spy with this watch that shoots a real, working laser. It’s not just for looks either—it will actually destroy stuff as demonstrated in this video. This gadget has carbon fiber-accents and an integrated 1,500-milliwatt blue laser that will fire for five to ten minutes before the battery dies.

It’s the work of Patrick Priebe who isn’t sharing the details of exactly how he made the thing, because can you just imagine the chaos? He is considering selling them in very small quantities at a price somewhere over $300. Hey, if you’re a globetrotting spy, that’s just a drop in the bucket.

1e2e_back_to_the_future_flux_capacitor_watch

Time traveling isn’t a reality just yet, but I feel like we’re getting closer because a Flux Capacitor watch exists. ThinkGeek is offering a digital watch modeled on Doc Brown’s gadget from Back to the Future and it tells the time and date using Flux Capacitor lights and time circuit LED. Here’s how it breaks down:

Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats)

When you’re tired of being in the moment, switch to the “Time Travel” mode and the time circuit will display a random date. The only problem is that you’ll have to run 88mph to make it work.

See what it looks like on the wrist after the break.
