(English) Design submitted by Heather from the USA.
Heather says: I was actually inspired when I tried to read a watch display concept by Lloyd from Australia. I was reading it incorrectly at first, looking for digits that weren’t there to find. But then I thought, that would work. So I developed this LED concept with animation that is basically an LED version of Kisai Stencil. Because the only LEDs necessary create a somewhat wave-like layout, I decided to give it a wave-like animation and entitle it WAVE. The animation can be set to automatically turn on at various intervals.
I gave the LED layout a somewhat asymmetric look so it would look cool even when the LEDs are off. Just like STENCIL, the digits are read by looking at the black space in between the columns of LEDs, rather than reading the LEDs themselves. Two digits for hours at the top, and two digits for minutes at the bottom.
This unisex watch (intended to be slim) will appeal to those are fans of LED watches, and enjoy baffling their friends.
The LED animation followed by the reading of negative space makes this design stand out from others on the blog.
