Shinshoku Watch: Look At The Pretty Lights

TokyoFlash has some of the craziest watches I’ve ever seen and 90 percent of the time I have trouble deciphering the time, and the Shinshoku is no different. This stainless steel wristband consists of a template of holes with 29 LEDs that light up and could possibly induce an epileptic seizure if you can’t read the time fast enough.

The LEDs on the watch cascade down to tell you what time it is, but I don’t suggest doing this while driving. The quick and dirty to breaking the code is as follows:

On the multi-color LED model the red lights (12) indicate the hour, the green (3) indicate 15 minutes each & the Yellow (14) are 1 minute each.
By telling the time in this way it makes it very easy to see if its roughly quarter-past, half-past or quarter-to the hour. With each green LED worth 15 mins; then 2 lit equals 30 mins.

My brain hurts. This seizure inducing watch can be yours in three different models (Multi-color, Red or Green LEDs) for only $120.
