Back in the mid-90s, Magic Eye had a brief reign as the monger of stereogram cool — you know, those hidden 3D images you could only see with crossed vision. While the flames of that mini-craze mercifully died out, it appears some diehard, grunge-era revivalist over at Tokyoflash is prepping a wrist piece comeback for the low-tech made notorious by Mallrats. Reincarnated as the Kisai Optical Illusion, this concept-to-design LCD watch incorporates high-resolution diagonal lines on its touch screen display that reveal the time to trained eyes. But if your peepers are out of practice, don’t worry, there’s also a handy shortcut button that ought to clarify things a bit. As with all of the outfit’s pretty, but pointless chronological kit, this particular limited edition model will retail for $179 as part of a special two-day sale, after which it’ll jump to $199. Like what you can’t see? Then bust out the flannel, lace up those Docs and prepare your plastic for processing when this digital ticker hits virtual shelves.
Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion watch is more than meets the eye, smells like teen spirit
