Illustrator, needle-felter and puppet stop-motion animation video artist, Hiné Mizushima, made an Apple Watch edition from cutout felt paper and cute buttons. The artist jokingly said her do-it-yourself Apple Watch felt edition has bands “engineered to keep up with an active lifestyle.” It has snap fasteners and is lighter as expected.
Mizushima’s expertise is seen through pieces made from paper cutout and digital art. Her other felt sculptures were already exhibited in art galleries across New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Osaka among other cities.
Apple Watch ‘Douchebag’ Edition
The Apple Watch set for release on April 24 comes in three editions, the Steel, the Sport and the Gold. But in the eyes of actress Anna Kendrick, the smartwatch has only one edition: the ‘douchebag edition’.
“We should be thanking Apple for launching the $10,000 ‘apple watch’ as the new gold standard in douchebag detection,” Kendrick posted on Twitter.

The right Apple Watch for you
Writing for TechCrunch, Darrell Etherington made a witty and comprehensive analysis regarding which edition of the Apple Watch is perfect for different personalities.
The Apple Watch Sport, he said, is perfect for college students and parents who are always on a budget. This edition has “the extra flare” even with a lesser price tag on it, he said.
For the Startup Founder, the Apple Watch Steel edition will “keep it classy” while still being affordable.
The Apple Watch Gold edition, with a price tag ranging from $10,000 to $17,000, will be perfect for the show-off Monopoly Man.
“Is it functionally the same as the $349 version? Yes of course, but a 415 Timex is functionally the same as the $1 million Hublot Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie, too,” Etherington wrote.
