The Binary Wrist Watch

I am sure you will consider this watch geeky if anyone else wears it. By the way, it is a binary wrist watch which is named as the Kerala Trance Watch. This watch looks really attractive and must be wondering how does it work? Well, there are two rows of LEDs in the watch which indicates time and minutes. The uppor row denote the hours and has four LEDs showing 1, 2, 4, 8. The lower row consists six LEDs of 1,2,4,8,16,32 and indicates the minutes. To know the time, simply press the function button and add up the value of the illuminated LEDs. For example, in the upper row if one and four are lit up, you make it as 1+4=5 and eight and two are lit on the lower row, it will be 8+2=10. So the time will be 5:10. It is available for US$176.50 and is water resistant to 30 metres. To buy this watch, Click Here.
