(English) Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: ”Arcadia” is an LCD concept watch design with a choice of 3 fun displays to tell you the time: one has alien invaders similar to the ones in some retro arcade games, another has rain clouds and the other jellyfish. So, hopefully, there’s something to appeal to everyone.
The time is displayed enigmatically using shadow numbers which are disguised either as the alien invaders’ missiles, as rain falling from the rain clouds or as the jellyfishes’ tentacles. In addition, there are animations showing the alien invaders firing missiles, the rain clouds raining and the jellyfish shimmering. These can be set to run every 5, 10 or 15 minutes.
Arcadia has a date mode, an alarm and is USB rechargeable via a computer. It also has an EL backlight which makes the display easier to read at night. The watch’s case and strap are made from stainless steel and are available in silver or black, but other colours are a possibility too. The LCD display is available in different colours and is “always on”.
This design would appeal to anyone who likes retro gadgets, video games, nature, the ocean, puzzles and creativity.
It stands out because it has 3 engaging and easy-to-read cryptic displays that can be changed to suit your mood.
