Sam says: The idea for GLYPH came when thinking about mirror LCD. The term itself became inspiration for this concept.
I mirrored the four classical digits twice, once horizontally and then once vertically. The resulting digits are point symmetric and look like glyphs from an unknown language, terrestrial or from outer space. There are actually four modes to mirror the digits that result in symmetric digits.
All these modes require the same LCD segment layout so I suggest to let the wearer chose via button, which one to display.
The reading rule is: concentrate on one of the 4 corners and find the well known number within the glyph.
A random mode, which changes the mirroring mode each minute, would be a good challenge for those who like it a bit more difficult. For those, who like it cryptically looking but quicker to read, a quick-solve-button would be wise.
Of course I am suggesting mirror LCD for the display and a metallic case – so everything fits together.
