Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: The inspiration for this concept is based on the old mobile phone game “Snake”.The premiss for the game: you control a snake, around the screen pixel blocks appear which you try to intercept. As your snake eats the blocks the snake gets longer and longer.
The game is over when you run into your own tail or the edges of the screen.
I decided you use this snake to describe the time. When the time is not being displayed the snake will move about the screen like a constant always on screen saver.
When the screen is touched the snake creates a negative of the current time using one continuos line (in basic digits mode)
In dot digit mode the centres of numbers 0,6,8 and 9 is made up of a pixel block like the ones in the original game , the snake creates the time around these blocks as per the basic mode. After several seconds the snake returns to continuos screen saver mode.
This design should appeal to people who like retro style products and games. The case is simple, uncluttered and geometric.
Being a rectangular display would allow this deign to be built into existing watch housings.
The time display method is simple, entertaining and novel. The method is open to hundreds of different patterns of time display and animations. It could be possible to program the watch to display custom messages and styles.
