Nemoto san says: “This is a minimalist watch design. As a result, the time does not appear at all. The time is communicated through vibration (Morse code). However, it is difficult to adjust the time so a radio clock function would be integrated.”
Here is a great idea that I haven’t yet seen produced and is worth discussing – the NEMOTO vibration watch. Designs have been done for blind people in the past, usually talking watches, and even some braille watch designs have surfaced over the years, but this is the first time I have seen the time done using vibration. Really thinking outside of the box.
This could be good for non blind people as well – it would freak people out, you could say that you can sense the time by not even looking at the time – could have some fun with that! It also opens up the possibility of making the watch into 100% a fashion accessory keeping the outlook clean and simple. I could imagine some nice metal bracelet with some cool inlay and no one would know that it was anything but a bracelet. Great concept.
