Check out this awesome retro style flip watch, from the video it looks like it was just a plain conversation concept from Fatman, but Circuit Girl found it fascinating and went on to complete it. Even Fatman was impressed and the prospect of being able to hook up the watch’s alarm so that it conects and plays an iPod automatically sounds very cool indeed.

Check out this fabulous retro PC design by Thomas who is a BA (Hons) student at the Arts Institute in Bournemouth, though this was just a one off final year project for Thomas, I certainly wouldn’t mind paying to have one of these sitting in my living room as a media centre and impressing my guests!

This is the biggest mobile phone handset I have ever seen. But its geeky but could be cool if I saw someone on the street one of these to their head (I would probably stare instead of laugh). I am sure it’s much more comfortable then the conventional in-ear handset though 🙂

It comes in three color: gold, white and black. It’s an ideal gift for those who are crazy about collecting retro style gadgets. I suppose my only concern is that I wouldn’t be able to fit it into my pocket after using it!
