“Artifact” LED watch is of alien origin.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Artifact” an object found on a newly colonised planet. Its origins and primary purpose are unknown. Its believe this is a relic of a lost advanced civilisation destroyed by its own creations. The science and tech division have discovered that one of its basic functions can be used to tell the time.

The top triangular display which is either LED or Backlit LCD communicates the hours in a digital analogue format, in the center of which the PM indicator is located. The lower display communicates minutes in the same digital analogue format. The device is activated by the two touch sensitive areas at the top and bottom of the unit highlighted by a strange symbol (presumed the monica of the species the “Artifact” originates from)

In a strive to understand the “Artifact” better its has been suggested that Human test subjects where the device on a daily basis to see if the object enhances their lifestyle in anyway. The chosen subjects are deemed style conscious types with a taste for alien tech. People who want easily understood devices that communicate the time in a simple formats but look futuristic.

The “Artifact” stands out from other recovered objects for its unusual appearance and combinations of materials. The display style looks unusual at first but is instantly recognisable.

Although little is know about this object it is expected that it will be easily replicated at a viable cost using existing human technology.

    Thanks TF for adding this concept to the blog! :D

    Thanks Peter for making this concept! It’s so crazy and cool! Looks like a mix of welding goggles and hour glass. Time telling is working good Maybe 12 longer minute indicators instead of 4 – then it would be perfect. Although the case is pretty chunky, it’s also very elegant. I can imagine to wear this one and also buy it first. 5▲/YES/Good luck!

    • avatar Pete says:

      Hehehe, Interesting you mention goggles as this was the designs initial name! lol
      Yeah I see your point about the extra minute markers. I considered making the case shallower but wanted to maintain a realistic physical size for the electronic innards.
      Thanks for the feedback, comment and vote! nano nano :)

    Awesome design. Really hope this one gets made. Id buy them all!!!!

  4. avatar Heather says:

    Hey, Pete. I am definitely not part of the demographic on this one.
    It does have an alien feel though, which is clearly what you were going for, so bravo! :D
    (nice alien arm and hand!)
    The touch sensitive control area is a neat idea.
    The time reading is not difficult – fairly straightforward. Unless I’m wrong though, I think the image that says 3:15 is actually 2:15.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Hi Heather,

      I can understand this one not suiting your taste (or wrist size). Yeah was trying to make it look alien but feasible from a technical perspective.
      Your right about the 3:15 time example, Doh! (the perils of finishing designs late at night! lol)
      Thanks for the feedback and the comment! :D

  6. avatar Firdaus says:

    It’s brutal, but at the same time, cute. I never seen something like this, the closest might be one fron Jan if not mistaken… Verry good pitukun, if I had to say its cheesy, definitely spicy mozzarella one… Want it now and be a futuristic musketeers instead of alien. Voted!

    • avatar Pete says:

      I’ll take brutal and cute! lol Yeah I was trying to make it different but using basic tech so its feasible but alien looking. Ummm spicy mozzarella! me likey. Im note sure which design you are comparing it too, I will have a scoot through the blog. Thanks for the comment and the vote! :D

    Absolutely mind-goggling Pete! 5* and yes!

  9. avatar Tzu says:

    I like the idea, but it looks way to big for me

    • avatar Pete says:

      Hi Tzu,
      Im sure if TF chose to develop this they could perfect the proportions to suite the majority of wrist sizes.
      Im glad you like the idea! :D

  10. avatar Clare says:

    I really like this, its so alien looking but easy to understand. I hope this one gets made! 5 stars and Yes

  11. avatar GC says:

    Wow this is a bit different. Looks unique but instantly readable. Looks pretty feasible too.
    I like the metallic one! 5stars and Yes!

    • avatar Pete says:

      Im glad you like it, and im glad you like different! Yeah should be a straight forward LCD or LED.
      Yeah the metallic one is my fav too. Thanks for the comment and the vote! :D

  12. avatar Dianekmt says:

    Very ‘X FILES’, nice concept. I like the metallic one, evokes ideas of metallic flying disks……..

      Hi Brenda,
      Thank you for dropping by the blog and showing your support, and thanks to Techcracks for featuring the design on their site!
      Im glad you like it! and hope that you will get the chance to get your own one day in the not too distant future!
      Thanks again for comment and vote! :D

    The first picture really scares me. Well, this watch is quite cool, and fabulous.
    I bought myself one online, and I like mine too.

  16. avatar Richard Dickerson says:

    I’m just not into space stuff

  17. avatar Mark says:

    This is hot. Would buy it instantly…. Does it detonate nukes??? (LOL)

    • avatar Pete says:

      hehehe its possible, we still dont know its primary function. I glad you like it and hope that one day you will be able to buy! Thanks for the hot comment! :D

  18. avatar CorpSpy says:

    Love it, would definitely buy one! *****

  19. avatar Makkovik says:

    nice model. Just an idea : Have you tried with the triangle in the opposite way ?

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yeah I sketched the triangular displays the otherway around originally but it looked less alien than this config. It might suit another future design tho! Thanks for the comment! :D

      • avatar Makkovik says:

        It would look more like the elevator buttons ( the one when you wait in a loby ). On some picture it look like swimmer gogles. I love the way the buttons are made. I would buy.

        BTW : I love the 1st picture.

        • avatar Pete says:

          Indeed it would look like elevator button/direction lights especially if one display was illuminated at a time. Something to think about for new designs. Im glad you like it, and hope one day you get the opertunity to buy. Thanks for the feedback and the comment!
