A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.
An original concept watch design that uses an e-paper display to present the time. The overall appearance of the watch is pure and simple. The white block in the centre of the screen display the time in binary (hours 1, 2, 4, 8 on the top row and minutes 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 on the bottom two rows). Combinations of these numbers indicate the time. For example, if the 8 hour light was out and the 1 and 2 minute lights were out, the time would be 8:03.
The unique element of this watch design is that the white block is also an AR (Augmented Reality) code which can interact with your computer or smart phone to create an avatar “virtual alter-ego” watch.
Just download a simple app to your computer or smart phone and the camera on your computer or smart phone will be able to read the AR code, so when you place your smart phone over the watch on your wrist or show your watch to your computer’s camera, your wrist will be displayed with an avatar “virtual alter ego” of the watch. In the example shown, this is a steampunk style design but could be virtually anything.
The watch design could also have a digital display so that you can switch to so that it can be read at a glance. The concept is an interesting way to enable virtual watch designs to be displayed on your wrist.
