…Diesel’s new watch is a freak of nature?

Diesel Freak Of Nature

Diesel’s new DZ4160 watch (aka the Freak of Nature) is definitely an interesting take on the timepiece.

Can’t decide between leather and steel, gold and silver, or futuristic and simplistic? Easy, just go with all of the above and stop worrying about what’s on your wrist.

The split-faced hybrid watch is half of one watch and half of another, and it’s all been crammed together and combined to give you the best of both worlds.

…The URWERK UR-202 is full of air?


The UR-202 is the world’s first wristwatch to feature “an innovative new winding system regulated by compressing air utilizing miniature turbines”.

    Time on the UR-202 is displayed using telescopic minute hands operating through the middle of three orbiting and revolving hour satellites.
    The telescopic minute hands precisely adjust their length to follow the three vectors marking the minutes: 0 -14, 15 – 44, 45 – 60. Extended, they enable the UR-202 to display the time across a large easy-to-read, dial. Retracted, they allow for a very wearable and comfortably sized case; thus providing the wearer with the best of both worlds.

If you’ve got the financial fortitude, then the UR-202 is available in either red gold, white gold, black PE-CVD platinum, and ALTiN steel.

One of each please…

…You can make your own electric mountain board?

Electric Mountain Board

If you’re willing to put your electrical skills to the test, then you can create your own Electric Mountain Board with a scooter motor and the batteries needed to power it.

The design allows for minimum damage to the board, and the ability to remove it if you want to do some standard riding.

A mod that gives you the best of both worlds?

…Soccer-Tennis is the best of both worlds?


Read enough Didn’t You Hear, and you’ll start to notice that I have an affinity for off-the-wall sports. Thus, Soccer-Tennis is right up my alley.

By combining soccer and tennis (three to a side, no ground contact, no hands, and three touches per play) it’s a best of both worlds idea that looks like it’s as much fun to play as it is to watch.

Now I just need to find a tennis court that I can take over…
