Two days ago, we heard of Sony’s plans to build a watch made entirely of e-paper – one where the band and the watch face would both change in response to the user’s wrist gestures. It sounded wild and provocatively different, but what we really wanted to know was what it looked like. As it turns out, that watch is already in the public eye, though Sony’s involvement had until now been kept clandestine so as to judge the product on its own merits. Say hello to the FES Watch.
Certainly an interesting concept, but I’m not sure I like the entire band being e-paper – it just looks kind of like those glowsticks you can slap around your wrist that were cool when I was like 6.
