That’s time at your fingertips
I am one of those people who never wears a watch on my wrist. Among the lame reasons that I don't is that I find all watches cumbersome to fasten. Lazy me.
The runner-up at the global watch design competition “Timex2154: The future of time,” held by Timex and Core77, is a stunner that promises to fundamentally change the way watches are worn and used. TX54 is a concept for a translucent watch that can be worn on your . . . thumbnail. Add to that a lovely indiglo display with color options for the displayed text, and the translucent feature that allows the watch to blend completely into your nail unless it is “activated.” A deadly combination of fashion and functionality, if you please.
Well folks, since I am pretty sure that I will not last until 2154, I am just keeping my fingers crossed (and ready) in the hope of seeing this selling sooner.
