With all the hype about the iPad, the JooJoo, and the Slate, the revolutionary technology the Kindle is built on kind of got lost in the shuffle. E-Ink is great for reading books, but it’s analog technology in a digital world – mostly because porn looks really bad in black and white.
But the high-contrast, easily changeable display the E-Ink provides is perfect for things you read (not ogle) – like numbers. The Phosphor E-Ink Watch is a great practical application of a technology that should have ended right around the time Nirvana did. The watch does pure digital display, analog hours and digital minutes, calendar, and alarm but the coolest part about the watch is the ability to flip-flop from a black on white to white on black with the simple touch of a button (this time it’s the one in the upper right and not the play button).
At $195.00 this watch isn’t going to break the bank, but we know times are tough so we want to give you one for the low, low price of nothing.
