The Picture Watch

Why should a watch only tell the time? We’d probably have watch-phones by now, if Dick Tracy’s wrist radio hadn’t overdone the idea to the point of hokey jokiness. How a digital screen, however? Movies seem obvious. But how about the picture-album watch? You push a button, see an image of your wife …your kids … your dog … your car.  OK, maybe clips of great sports plays. Something less goofy about looking at your wrist instead of talking into it. … Or how about two-way watches for two-player games? Weird coming from a guy who never wears a watch! (Doh! Just realized — finally a watch you do watch.)
