Tech blogs have been buzzing about smart watches for months, like the rumored Apple iWatch and the Samsung Galaxy Gear. We’ve yet to see any compelling reason to get interested in the smart watch category.
But in the category of stupidtacular watches, we can get excited about Gabriel Anzziani’s Oscilloscope Watch! It’s huge and it looks like something from the 70’s. But, at the end of the day, it outgeeks the competition by putting a frigging oscilloscope on your wrist.
The Oscilloscope Watch has all the features of a modern watch (time, calendar, alarm, etc…). But it also has all the features of the Xprotolab mixed signal oscilloscope, arbitrary waveform generator and protocol sniffer. You never know when you’re going to need to do some protocol sniffing or generate some arbitrary waveforms, do you?
The Oscilloscope Watch is being developed as a KickStarter project. The Watch is available to backers starting at $100. See the project site for details.
