  1. Must-Have Breathalyzer Watch Tells You When to Go Home, You’re Drunk

    The latest watch from TokyoFlash can tell you when it's time to leave the bar. Whether or not you listen is your own business.

    Most of us have had the kind of night where we would have been better off heading home from the bar before that last round. And we probably would have, too, if someone had just told us that we didn't need another beer. Alas, that's rarely the way the world works. Thanks to the constant march of progress, though, you can now tell when you've had a few too many without relying on your friends or your own inebriated brain. The weirdo watchmakers at Tokyoflash have brought the world a boon -- a watch with a built-in breathalyzer you can use to monitor your drinking.

  2. Review: Tokyoflash’s Kisai Night Vision

    So far, we here at Geekosystem have had the pleasure of reviewing two distinctive Tokyoflash watches, the analog Uzumaki and the On Air. Now, I'm going to finish up the saga with a review of Tokyoflash's Kisai Night Vision, perhaps the Tokyoflashiest one of the batch. If you want a snazzy conversation starter, this one definitely makes the cut.

  3. Review: Tokyoflash’s Kisai On Air

    Earlier, we took a look at Tokyoflash's analog Uzumaki watch -- which artfully obfuscated the time while keeping it digital. This time we look at the Kisai On Air watch. This handsome fellow sports a touch screen, sleek design, and a beautifully shiny acetate housing. But will it stand up to Max's snobbery?

  4. Review: Tokyoflash Uzumaki

    Being on the Internet for a living, one comes across some really neat products from around the world, from a bubble wrap calender to a USB adapter that allows one to mix and match parts from various video game controllers. One may also come across Tokyoflash, a company that specializes in some modern, sleek, and pretty weird watches. I've never been one to wear a watch, as my parents, who bought me various nice watches over the course of my life only to find them in a drawer years later, will sourly lament. However, upon seeing the Tokyoflash watches, I always thought if I'd ever give a watch a serious go, it'd be one of theirs. Along with our first Tokyoflash giveaway, we here at Geekosystem received some review units, so luckily for me, I got to give a Tokyoflash watch, the Kisai Uzumaki, a serious go. Here's what I think.

  6. Tokyoflash Kisai Stencil Watch Is All About What It Doesn’t Show

    As part of its enduring fondness for watches which aren't immediately decipherable, Tokyoflash has released yet another watch that isn't exactly what it seems. The Kisai Stencil Watch, while a little weird at a glance, is probably the most intuitive Tokyoflash watch I've seen in a long time. The trick is easy; the numbers are drawn with the whitespace. As you might have guessed by the watch's name, its face is conveyed via stencil, making it look like jumbled lines at first glance, but also exceeding easy to read once the trick clicks.

  7. Concept Decypher Watch Looks Complicated, Is Deceptively Simple

    If you're anything like me, over exposure to digital clocks has made even standard analogue watches a puzzle to look at sometimes, but if that's not enough for you and you want digital to look weird too, check out the Decypher Watch. A concept device posted by a fellow named Llyod over at Tokoyflash, the Decypher takes an interesting spin on pure digital by obscuring it with seemingly random triangles. There's a method to the madness however, and once it clicks, it's pretty easy to spot.

  8. Touchscreen Watch Tells Time With Optical Illusions

    In this day and age, when you've got your Walkmans and your iTablets and your new fangled pocketual telephones, people don't wear watches as much as they used to. Just wearing a watch is enough to perplex some of your fellows, I'm sure, so why not wear a truly perplexing watch to perplex them further? The new Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion LCD watch is tops at that, displaying the time via an optical illusion that -- if I'm any indication of "normal" -- takes a bit of training to learn to read, but no training to appreciate.

  9. Sleek Watch Tells Time With Two Pulsating LED Rings

    Neat-but-eccentric watch designer Tokyoflash is at it again, this time unleashing the Kisai Seven, a watch that tells time with two pulsating LED rings. Though possibly confusing at first, the two LED rings closely resemble any analog clock: The outer ring displays minutes in increments of five, while the inner ring displays hours. The top and bottom LED strips help display the precise minute, with the fill of the bar signaling anywhere from one to four minutes, so half of a fill would be two minutes.

    The watch is a limited edition, is available in blue or white LEDs, and is on sale for $99 through October 28, at which point, the price jumps to $139. Head on over to Tokyoflash to check it out and maybe put in an order.

  10. Sleek Concept-Turned-Real Watch Tells Time With Words, Has Some Questionable Words

    15-year-old Tynan Mayhew is a fan of Japan-based watchmaker Tokyoflash, so he decided to design a concept watch and send it in to them. Awesomely for him, Tokyoflash liked the concept design (seen after the break) so much, that they actually created the watch, dubbed the Kisai Kaidoku. Aside from the sleek, modern look, the watch uses words to tell the time rather than numbers. However, looking more closely at the watch, one may notice something a little amiss: Among the numbers, one can plainly see the words "ass," and "poo," (although one of the letters of the "poo" is being used for "one") something that wasn't included in the original concept design. Either way, neat watch, but possibly weird easter egg?
