Look at this thing: it’s supposed to be a concept watch by Napoleon Merana, Steffen Schubert and David Takacs for a series called Timex 2154: The Future of Time. First, I doubt we’ll all survive until 2154 and if we do we’ll all be living in skin huts out on the tundra and second what happens if you bit your fingernails. Do you get shocked? Do you have to go to the drug store for another Timex Fingernail Watch?
It’s a clever concept, to be sure, but I just worry about the implementation. Do you have to take off your old fingernail? How do you change the battery? What about jet-pack travel? Will it interfere with your inflight neural network connection? These things need to be taken into consideration.
