The Balance Watch bases itself off the duality of Yin and Yang

Visually split into two distinct parts, the Balance watch says all it needs to with its name, and the watch face design. Taking inspiration from the Yin-Yang, the Balance watch is all about showcasing a duality. A duality between colors, themes, and even technology, because aside from being half black and half white, the Balance Watch is also half-analog, half digital.

Looking like a normal mechanical watch, the Balance’s watch face is actually half-parts a dynamic e-ink display. The black surface serves as a display unit, through which the hands appear, and on top of which lies the white half-dial piece, adding contrast and drama to the watch face.

The hands come with their own interpretation of duality, with black and white hands (and dot indicators at the end of them) and tell the time against the watch’s dual-colored surface. The white part of the watch surface comes with a subdial, and to complement it, the e-ink display has a ‘subdial’ too that displays the date and time. The e-ink display even works in tandem with your phone when connected, giving you notifications when you’re getting a call or a message, and if you really want to spice the two-tone layout, you can even get the display to show off black and white patterns, giving you the duality of visual drama vs plain-ness!

Disney Invents a One-legged Robot That Hops Like a Crazy Pogo Stick

Disney’s research branch just revealed a crazy robot that can hop on a single leg. It doesn’t need a tether either, and has an on-board power source and controller. Now they just need to scale it up and give us a cool pogo-stick robot for personal transport.

That leg uses a technology called a linear elastic actuator in parallel – or LEAP, which uses both an electromagnetic actuator and two compression springs. The position and real-time adjustments made to its leg to remain balanced are handled by a pair of standard servo motors.

As it is, this hyper robot can hop around for up to seven seconds before falling. I still like my personal transport idea. Make it happen Disney.
