Pumpktris is a fully playable version of Tetris built into a regular pumpkin. While it looks super cool it might not be the easiest DIY project to test out with the fam. The pumpkin consists of 128 LEDs for the display and the stem serves as a game controller. It was constructed by Nathan Pryor and will probably make your angry cat pumpkin look like a kindergarten project.
Yesterday, Tokyoflash launched Rouge, their new watch that features LED lights and interconnecting LCD blocks. Instead of conventional digital numbers displays or hands, the Rouge watch shows time by illuminating bars on the watch face that correspond with numbers placed around the ring of the watch. The LED lights are sectioned off into various blocks and rings that indicated different intervals of time.
The outer ring of small LCD dots on the face of the watch represents minutes, every fifth dot being slightly smaller to distinguish five minute groups. The ring of large LCD light blocks on the rim represents the rough minutes, the position of the gap indication approximate minutes in groups of five. The inner ring of LCD blocks represents hours, the position of the gap in the ring showing the current hour as on a clock face.
The Rogue is available with either a polished silver or IP black finish from Tokyoflash for approximately $160 US, including free five-day worldwide delivery. For more information, please visit www.tokyoflash.com.
