Watch phone...

I like a timepiece. Any recessive OCD impulses that may be hiding in my DNA are satiated by these tiny, precision techno-universes that hug your wrist. People often say that watches are a thing of the past, that every cellphone has one... Why do you need one? (In fact, I don't own one. But I would if the right one were out there...)

Here's the thing. I say turn it around. Why don't watches have cellphones in them? Surely it can be done. I have some good design ideas if anyone's interested.

Oops... Just Googled this. They exist. But they're consistently ugly and enormous. Watchmakers, let's talk.

Bonus image: The watch that they used in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
