The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Smashed Into Their Face …

Just over a year or so ago, a mate of mine – AG – told me about an invention he was making for the iWatch.

When he told me what it was – an iWatch holder/magnifying glass that doubled as a bedside clock – I admit I laughed. Not that it was a bad idea [though I wasn’t sure if it was a good one either] but that he had grandiosely called it an ‘invention’.

What a dick I was.

Apart from the fact he was making something that didn’t exist before, he was really passionate about it and deserved more of my support than any of my laughter.

Well he got his own back …

Zoom forward to now and the Nightwatch sits on my bedside table.

Sure it doesn’t have wifi or make you a cup of coffee in the morning, but it does charge your iWatch while turning it into a beside clock thanks to the brilliant way he’s manufactured the product to act as a screen magnifying glass.

Hell, it even turns the phone on automatically if you tap the top of the ‘clock’.

While I still find the word ‘invention’ rather amusing, the reality is there wasn’t another product like it till he made his, which mean it’s not only an invention – but more than anything I can ever lay claim to creating, bar ads and some terrible guitar solos on terrible 80/90 popstar songs.

So this post is a public apology and product recommendation all in one.

AG, it’s great and I hope you sell a bucketload of them.

You deserve to.

If you want one – you can get it here.

Are you jealous because the only thing you invented was that weird ice cream no one tried? I’ve just ordered a nightwatch. It looks interesting.

Coffee crunch ice-cream is amazing. Annnnnnnnd there’s a place in NZ that makes a version of it and has queues for it. OK, so it’s not exactly like mine but I’m ignoring that for now.

And I think you’ll like Nightwatch. But please don’t get Apple to buy it off him, I couldn’t handle it if he got millions, hahahaha.

I still get excited when I see people create possibilities from ideas others didn’t see.

Well said George.

Is it made from fortune teller balls so planners think they can tell the future?

Comment by Billy Whizz

Yeah … which is why I can see you being met with a black eye in the near future, hahaha.
