Tokyoflash Kisai Rorschach Watch Turns Telling the Time Into a Psych Evaluation

By Gerald Lynch on at

Tokyoflash, purveyors of wristwatches so cryptic as to make your time keeping abilities more rather than less tardy, are back with the Kisai Rorschach, an e-paper watch that would require a psychology doctorate in order to read.

Originally a concept submitted to the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog by German Tokyoflash fan Sam Jerichow, the watch face is intended to mimic the infamous inkblot tests of Hermann Rorshach. According to the release:

Reading the time is simple. Hours are shown in the top right, minutes in the bottom left, the rest of the screen is a reflection of these digits which creates the inkblot effect.

Hmm -- "simple"? I'm not so sure. All I'm seeing is a pretty butterfly. Some nice flowers. Clouds. Shipping from Thursday November 21st, it'll set you back £114. [Tokyoflash]
