Pierre Junod Eris Planetary Sphere watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

Pierre Junod Eris Planetary Sphere watchThis watch is shaped like a planet. Or maybe a small moon. Wait, that’s no moon. It’s the Death Star. You can tell by that trench. Alright, it was named after the recently discovered dwarf planet. The Pierre Junod Eris watch tells time using a pair of rotating hands that float through the equator of the globe.

The orange top pointer shows the minutes, while the hours are shown on the white lower pointer. Each timepiece is made from a dramatic anthracite anodized aluminum case with a curved mineral glass crystal to protect the hands. A battery-powered Swiss movement keeps the time. But how do you wear a small planet?

Rubik's Cube 360 goes on sale next weekRubik’s cube took the world by storm a few decades back. The man behind the cube is now ready to let another creation loose upon the world in the form of the spherical 360. Yes, he has gone as far as possible with cube puzzle technology and has now moved onto a round puzzle.

It’s a see-through sphere with domes on the outside. Within the main structure, there are two more spheres, with balls in the center. The colors of the balls match the little domes. You can already see how this thing will drive you nuts.

Moxia Sphere interfaceThe Moxia sphere is a folding multitouch display with an always-on internet connection and gyroscopic elements that can also be used folded flat. It will be able to display the world, browse web pages or control interactive games. All in a device about the size of an apple.

The device can be recharged by opening one of the petals and can also display an interactive world map like Google Earth. It sounds very promising, but will likely be a while in coming.

Rubik’s Cube gets spherical update

Rubik’s Cube gets spherical updateRubik’s 360 is not an Xbox 360 title. It’s the next version of the popular cube puzzle that is a sphere. The device is about to be officially unveiled in Germany this week at a national toy show. As you might imagine nerds the world over are enthusiastic about laying their hands on it.

The gadget has six balls trapped inside transparent plastic spheres. To solve it, you have to figure out how to get the internal balls “from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes.”

A new spin on sound: Sphere sound system

A new spin on sound: Sphere sound systemIt’s still a concept, but the latest Sphere Sound System rocks it’s name. Obviously aliens are designing gadgets on this planet. The entire music system is round, not just the speakers. It is copletely and utterly spherical. Even those backwards tin hat wearing believers that the Earth is flat can not deny the roundness of this thing. Plus every piece is designed with maximum function in mind.

The subwoofer has the largest speaker and the speaker cone is flanked by two tri-channel speakers, which can be used as a 2.1 surround-sound system. The holes on the sides of the speakers are not ears, but allow deeper vibrating sounds out, which helps to generate ultra deep bass. Every sound is emphasized in the spheres. When using the unit, the main function buttons and the drive glow green. When it’s off, the power button glows red. The LCD screen also glows as the system plays music. Not only is it super functional, but just look at the decorative statement it makes.

Orb PC looks like a time traveling Pac-Man

Orb PC looks like a time traveling Pac-Man
There are PCs, and then there are PCs that look like Pac-Man has arrived from the future to kick ass and chew bubble gum…And he’s all out of bubble gum. Plus he’s got legs. According to the modder, this PC came about because he wanted to “construct some kind of Pacman or motorcycle-helmet that can open a visor driven by a motor.”

The visor is comprised of two quarter-spheres, one slightly smaller than the other. They are glued together with about 5mm of space for the water cooling system. I’d say job well done. This thing looks like it could lurch forward at any minute and start gobbling things up.
