HYDRO BIKE offers a cheaper way to travel. The design of this bike was meant to save your hard earned money without looking like a cheapskate. Powered by hydrogen cell but added with “unworkable” pair of pedals.

Why the need to have pedals?
As long as it has pedals (self-propelled), it would still legally be considered a bicycle in many countries. There’s no need of a motorcycle license, yearly road tax, summons and anything that cost money for owning a bike.

Exostrusion LED Watch Was Inspired by Rear Diffusers of Modern Sports Cars

Exostrusion LED watch concept was inspired by the rear diffusers of modern sports cars. It’s pretty simple actually, these diffusers are usually looking like extruded forms with various fins and facets, so, taking these forms in mind, Peter Fletcher has come up with unique and futuristic display frame for his latest watch design.

The time is displayed by those LEDs arranged in 4 quadrants, the top 2 quadrants display the hours while the others display the minutes. These quadrants are divided with appropriate number of segments by a unique extruded form, forget flat smooth surface. Since the time can be displayed in both 12hr or 24hr formats, the center area becomes the AM/PM indicator. The display layout also allows for a phased digital time telling mode where it is all controlled by subtle soft touch controls mounted in the strap, you can see those 2 highlight indents.

ZIIIRO Celeste Gunmetal Colored Watch Hands-On Review

I’m not really a watch person but when Ziiiro sent over Ziiiro Celeste Gunmetal colored watch, I was amazed by its appearance. It is certainly cool looking watch, it delivers what it promises. Even though Ziiiro is a new company, but it stands out among its competitors with its unique, minimalist watch design. If you want to own one of Ziiiro’s watches to complement your existing collection, you need to prepare $170 – $250 to get one.

Ok, let start with the review here. Opening the cardboard box, I can see plain white carton box that protects a nice looking clear plastic case. The blue ZIIIRO watches logo can be seen on top of the plastic case that holds the watch safely, at this point, I feel so excited to see the watch display that boasts yellow, blue, and green color combination with silver ZIIIRO logo at the center.

PS: We’re going to host a giveaway next week where you can win a cool ZIIIRO Saturn Silver (up to 3 winners).
