Home Theater Watch Is Neither for Home Nor a Theater, Barely a Watch

Apparently, someone at Gadget Universe (an Alexander Innovation Wizard Company, the geniuses who previously brought you the Sun Visor Theater, the Pseudo-UFO and other potentially hazardous inventions) got the idea that watching movies on a 1.5" 128 x 128 pixel OLED screen mounted on a watch was a good idea. So good in fact, that they created the Home Theater Watch.


Maybe they decided to ignore those old failed '80s TV watches from Seiko. Maybe they thought their friends' advice, of the "Are you an idiot?" or "Who's the moron that is going to buy that?" kind, were absolutely misguided. Whatever was the case, I only have one thing to say: Alexander Innovation Wizard Company, we love you.


Looking at the product shot, you may think this $119.95 watch can only show QVC infomercials, but fear not dear readers, because it ain't so, as you will see in the technical specs right after the jump.

Measuring a mere 2" x 1.5" x 0.5", the Home Theater Watch not only would let you get blind, squinting to see whatever video you can fit in its 2GB memory, but you would also be able to use it as a defensive weapon. It can play MP3, WMA, JPEG and MP4 formats as well, so would it be iTunes-friendly? We can only hope so.

The best feature, however, goes to the sound system, which apparently has 5 EQ modes, 3D sound effects and a "Super Bass" guaranteed to rattle your wrist bones! BUY NOW, I SAY! Or maybe not.

UPDATE: Yes, this is the same MP4 watch available from Brando, at their Hong Kong store for $138.

Actually, this seems pretty cool - look at the video at

(Beware loud crappy music at start of video).

Personally, I really wanted a crappy TV watch in the 80s as a kid. For $120 bucks, I may end up living my childhood dream. I can fill it with Transformers and Go-Bots cartoons, and my life will be complete.
