Watch displays cheeky "approximate time" messages 

The Talus About Time watch (not yet available) displays a text and number
message giving you the approximate time, such as "Slightly After 6" and "Nearly
6 Forty Five." It undermines the false precision of traditional watches, and is
also a great example of whimsical technology that takes advantage of low-cost
computer logic to deliver products that would have been impossible a decade ago.
I would love to have a wall-clock version of this.
