Design submitted by Devindh from the UK.
Devindh says: Project ‘ripple’. I watched a presentation on youtube from CES 2012 about the current state of e-paper devices (mainly from e-ink). One aspect of this technology that stood out for me is its ability to maintain curvature and still be legible/functional. I decided to create a design with this as the main focus.
The design is simple. The main face consists of horizontal strips of e-paper that are preformed into rippled surfaces. The idea is that any amount of ‘themes’ can be created for telling the time, these themes can be simple or cryptic. The functions are accessed via a touch strip that is positioned at the side of the watch.
I hope that any person interested in the potential of emerging display tech, as well as design, will find this watch appealing.
The textural aspect of this watch should help it stand out.
