Disney Imagineer Terri Hardin along with Silicon Valley inventor Frank Cohen have created a whimsical collection of vintage pocket watches that glow in brilliant colors. Starling pocket watches are available in six intricate designs with a calming light show that illuminates the time:

“These remarkable time pieces are the tangible embodiment of intangible concepts. They illuminate with your touch, the Chillovean lights dance about as if to whisper the secrets it holds to its owner. Chillovean lights feature multitudes of different random color arrangements, more than you can see in a lifetime. This beautiful piece of fantasy jewelry is a wonderful family heirloom and an amazing unique gift”

The pocket watch collection is also part of a six chapter fantasy story that follows three time traveling characters as they unlock great powers with each timepiece. When you register on the Starling website, a new chapter is sent every week, beautifully illustrated in bas relief sculptures.

Take closer look at the watches (including a video) after the break…

After undergoing spinal fusion surgery, redditor “Penguinz90” was required to wear a large neck brace that she thought might “freak out” the kids she teaches in her science class. In order to reduce the risk, and add some style to what is otherwise a completely utilitarian object, she decided to unleash some steampunk imagination:

I dyed the foam insert hot pink, then got a black oil based paint Sharpie and colored the plastic and Velcro straps black, then added the steampunk gears with hot glue. I took it off and leaned my head back on a recliner to color it, put it back on to dry off then glued everything on while looking in the mirror.

As you can see in the photo above, the result could lead to a new career in the jewelry business—not to mention the burgeoning world of custom nerdy medical gear (which includes wheelchairs, helmets and prosthetics).

This unique strawberry quartz, sterling silver, and copper ring from Etsy seller mooredesign13 was inspired by steam-powered ships.

The gears, which actually spin, represent the paddle wheels, while small natural garnets are set in the top of each smoke stack. The one-of-a-kind stone is placed between the stacks to form the deck.

It’s a gorgeous piece of work. Do yourself a favor and take a closer look after the break.
