A USB Watch Or Something More Than That

This USB watch (at least I think it is one) from Dialog05 is something of an enigma. The watch itself has a USB jack, which is confusing in itself, but frankly I don’t think that is the only thing that is different about the Status.

As you can see, there is a little bar for hours and another blue bar for minutes, which leads me to think that it IS indeed a watch, but then the caption on the website leads to the confusion. According to the description of the Status this “watch” makes “40 seconds last for three minutes”. This is truly the source of my confusion. They then bring in the concept of time being a relative quantity, which works perfectly fine, but I’m not sure if I would buy a watch that would make me wonder if I am on time or not. Having said that, I must say, this watch looks like it is straight out of a science fiction movie. The kind where you press a button on the watch and it vaporizes the enemy. This totally appeals to me. I just wish I knew where I could buy myself one.

If you’re looking out to buy a new watch that is not only cool, but will also baffle you, you should consider the Status, but if you prefer something more conventional then maybe you should try the Negative Watch?
