The Qlocktwo W watch by Biegert & Funk tells the time with words that light up when you push a button on the face instead of numbers or hands. Who needs extremely exact time telling anyway?
The Qlocktwo W is available in English, German and French as well as in black, brushed and polished stainless steel – all sporting the black leather strap.
Can’t seem to find info on availability or price on the W, but the larger Qlocktwo wall clock ($1,100.00) and Qlocktwo table alarm clock ($590.00) is available.
Had to mention another Kickstarter project: Supr Slim by Supr Good Co. A really, really thin wallet or as Supr describes it: “a super-thin, card-carrying over-achiever. Designed for minimalists.”.
The two guys behind Supr got fed up with regular thin wallets made out of conventional materials like leather that got out of shape after a while (or was designed for a specific number of cards) so they created the 3 mm thin Supr Slim wallet out of a durable and very elastic material that wraps tightly around your cards. So, cram one, two or ten cards in there and they’ll fit snugly without stretching it out. Also, it’s available in six colors and the material is RFID friendly.

I really like Marshall’s line of headphones, and now they’ve updated the Major White to Major White FX, meaning it comes armed with a fully iPod/iPhone/iPad compatible microphone and remote.
As the previous versions it’s fully collapsible and sports a headband made out of the same vinyl used in Marshall’s classic amps.

I’m not a big fan of headsets, but the Nokia J Bluetooth Headset sure looks good. Besides the shiny, curved, stainless steel housing it sports a clip to carry it in (yeah, wearing a headset all the time just to look like you’re expecting important calls isn’t impressing anyone) which automatically turns the headset on/off when used to preserve battery time. Also, you get DSP noise reduction, automatic echo cancellation (AEC), automatic volume control that adjusts to your surroundings and two sets of small, medium and large earpieces. As for the battery you get up to 3 months of standby time and 5 hours of talk time.
The Nokia J is compatible with any phone supporting Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Headset Profile 1.1 and Handsfree Profile (HFP) 1.5.
