Good observation. You'd get stopped and searched within four seconds.

I am definitely the kind of guy who would go into an airport with one of them things, using "Plutonium-brand" batteries...

That's when you don't actually need to catch a flight, I presume?

On closer inspection the image of the Krusty Brand appears extra pixelated...

that has got to be one of the most dumb things i have ever seen. i'll stick with my watch thank you..

but i agree with nick on the desktop version. that'd be freaking cool! how about an alarm clock with a built in cd-player that wakes you with tube amplified music.


edit:


very neat looking, the atomic radio version is even better.

i also love how the watch kit costs $50 but the assembled watch costs $500.. must be really tough to put together or something..
