The 8 retro gadgets that you actually might want to own – Crosley, Fujifilm, Timex and more

By Stefano on November 20th, 2012

A few years ago retro gadgets seemed like quite a fun idea. Oh how we chuckled when we saw that iPhone case made to resemble a 1970s Motorola brick. And yep I loved all those games consoles styled like ones I had a few decades ago yet stacked out with contemporary processors and graphics cards.

Somewhere along the line though it all went a little too crazy. Now every gadgets site has a bonkers array of iPhone cases designed to look like ancient devices and music players that take their style cues from a few decades ago. And sad to say that an awful lot of what is being produced is, whisper it, not that great.

So finding 10 retro gadgets that are actually quite stylish as well as being rather useful too proved to be quite a tough task,. In the end we gave yup at 8, so if you do know of any others we can use to pad out the list let us know in the comments.

Links to the various products are included under the pics.

Vyconic do many interesting things with record players. This is the stand out of their range for me. It has a Quartz clock mechanism, silent 'sweeping' second hand and is powered by 1x AA battery. You get to choose the artist whose single is playing.

Accessories for Spring

By Colin Chapman on January 8th, 2009

Available as part of the new Jil Sander collection at OkiNi are some very lovely accessories that are the very essence of the pared-down but colourful 60s-themed collection. I particularly like this key ring – pricey at nearly £100 quid – but surely to be replicated elsewhere at more affordable prices. The Timex watch strikes a new note in an unusual colourway that only confirms that one way to make a statement this S/S is through strong colours. Meanwhile this chunky, plaid tie would look awesome over a smart, chambray shirt. Finally, the Jimi rubber wallet available in a range of luscious colours is almost edible. Themes for SS09 accessories? Cute, colourful, retro and graphic. How clear is that?

Present Tense: last minute Christmas gifts

Everyone is guilty of it, (well not everyone, I have a colour-coded Google Docs spreadsheet, natch!) but last-minute Christmas shopping can often leave you with gifts that have an air of desperation about them.
These picks have something for every wallet and they all carry an air of “What this? I bought this in November” insouciance. The Habitat lamp is a tasteful nudge for every Ikea junkie, and the watch will help the wearer get the ‘Sexy Cab Driver’ look which is going to be very important in ’09. A ‘To Do’ tattoo list is useful when compiling all those New Year’s resolutions, and all the more useful because they’re temporary. Resolution, what resolution?!
