    Very pretty Sam, loving the animated folding squares. The digits take a little learning but are well worth the effort! Very jealous of this one! cooooool! 5/Y Best of luck sir!

    Nice watch Sam, but the numbers are a bit of a s-t-r-e-t-c-h.

      Actually, some of them are ok, but others automatically suggest different numbers to me so I could get confused at times. For example, the shape you have chosen to represent ’8′ looks to me like it contains a tilted 4 and the one representing 6 has what looks like a 7 in the top right corner. This problem wouldn’t be so bad if all the numbers could be found by using the same logic, ie the numbers were formed by the white areas only. At the moment you have to commit the shapes and their associated numbers to memory which isn’t very satisfactory in my opinion.

    Thanks for the nice and constructive comments everybody!

    Llyod, thanks alot for the brainstorming and for sharing your creative thoughts with me! First I have to say, confusion and misinterpretation (no matter how imaginative one even is) can be solved just like not-understanding-at-all: by p-r-a-c-t-i-c-e ;) Of course I agree that less learning would be better and this could be done by a simple logic. The logic here is simple: 1 square paper, only folding (no cutting) is allowed and the massive parts are important. If we combine all rules, we see the 8 jumps out of the massive parts rule. I couldn’t help it to be honest. I could have used an hourglass symbol (like the black widow has). That would be easily recognized as an 8, but origami fans know, this can’t be created by folding only. So I kicked one rule hehe. I’m actually happy with the seams left behind in the paper. To me they look more like an x than a tilt 4, but that’s subjective and the practice would eliminate all subjectivity.

    I hate origami !

  13. avatar Makkovik より:

    But this one is the best origami-inspired watch I’ve seen.

    I like the “regular folding animation” idea & love the clean/simple overall look & the 2X2 grid. ( I also like that the 5 is a mirror of the 2 and the same apply to the 6 & 9 )

    10* & I would buy.
