It’s often true that something nerdy is so astounding or self-aware that it becomes cool by virtue of its novelty or attitude. The Flüd Boombox digital watch takes this conceit and runs with it–off a cliff.
One imagines a humming server room, green LEDs twinkling behind blue ropes of CatV. Experienced networking hands pluck tufts of insulation from under their Tokyoflash timepieces. A young new IT hire, fresh from Cisco academy, hurries in to proudly show off his awesome boombox watch.
There are smiles that do not reach the eyes, and silence.
