Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch

Great Scott! Someone was hanging a clock in the toilet when he fell and hit his head on the sink. That’s when he came up with the idea of a Flux Capacitor Wristwatch. No joke. This Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is real and is available at ThinkGeek for US$49.99.

Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun and challenging. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit. It may look confusing, but is very easy to read. Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats. At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date.

Will it time travel? Well, I guess you need to generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity and run 88 miles per hour for time travel to happen.

I don’t know about you. But this looks like the perfect Christmas present for Back To The Future fans like me. Definitely better than any smart watch in the market.

Race the tube in Singapore

Recently there is a online trend to race the tube. Basically you get off the train and run to the next station to catch the same train. The online craze has been done in cities like London, Berlin, Paris, Hong Kong etc etc.

Well, a group of people just did one in Singapore to promote the Asics City Relay event.

OK, its not exactly race the tube since they are doing in a relay format. But still quite impressive. Little India to Farrer Park station is quite a distance.

Sorry, no Lreo. But hey, Oreo can try apply 3 versions later.
