Don't know if Fluke will file a lawsuit. Such a lawsuit does have some merit I think. Of course I am no lawyer. But the intend is clear that they tried to make you think it's a Fluke product.

I have a suggestion that the useless reset button should be replaced with a current measurement input terminal.

Very rudimentary… I’ll wait for the model that uses your fingers as probes.

It’s art. It’s not a product. Hence fluke has no case !!

The specs are really good but I wouldn't get one because it doesn't have a CAT rating or HRC fuses.

Shenzen-style that could actually be doable. Li Hong is probably already on it. Basically a circular version of the A3008 PCB would do the trick. But the compartement for the hands would need to be less wasteful on the actual product. Flake already sounds like a genuine shenzen brand.

I remember Homer Simpson buying a "Sorny" television at the local mega-discount store.

"They" is one guy showing off his 3D modelling skills. It's not a product, it's literally an advertisment for his modelling skills. Fluke should hire him.

I used to be on the HPmuseum forum and everyone used to create new HP calculators mockups, so good you'd think it was a real product. It's tech fan art.
There is someone I've seen a few time on twitter who creates amazing fake vintage apple product renders.

I'd actually buy a Fluke branded watch that looked like that.
Maybe if it had a voltage detection function or something that would be cool.

I like the look of the watch but like G-Shocks I wouldn't buy if it was real.
As for the probes though, I would consider buying those.
I wonder how many  industrial design that are amazing to look at but drastically altered so they can be produce. (I don't mean cost cutting.)?

Why? Because of the banana adapter? You can get those.

Many years ago I was replacing the battery in a Ford vehicle. As I was tightening the positive battery terminal the wrench slipped out of my hand and fell down in between the side of the battery case and the inner fender. I was in a hurry and without thinking I reached down between the battery and fender to retrieve the wrench - and promptly shorted between the two with the metal watch band around my wrist.  :scared:

That was the last time I ever wanted to experience doing any amperage testing using a wrist watch. I had a ring of blisters around my wrist for weeks!  :clap:

I'm sure Casio has made a yellow G-Shock or two by now.

How about a SELV-only, EEVBlog-branded, 6.5-digit jobby? You've already got the free 36*C thermostat for the voltage reference! :-DD

Yeah, I looked earlier but there's none that really do it for me.

(nb. All my watches are Casio...it's my only brand)
