Design submitted by Heather from the USA.
Heather says: In an attempt to “change the way I think about time”, I pondered ways of telling time that could be different. In doing so, I thought about an hourglass, which led to the creation of rounded digits that could appear to fill an hourglass.
This display is intended for mono-color epaper, which will allow for the curved shapes, and can be always on.
To imitate the functionality of an hourglass, I thought about including an accelerometer, as in Kisai Online. When you turn your wrist to look at the time, you can see the hours and minutes displayed, but when your wrist is face down, the display turns upside-down (as an hourglass can turn upside-down), showing digits counting in seconds. This concept assumes that the refresh rate for epaper will allow for this.
This is a unisex design for awesome people. If you’re awesome, you should want this watch.
This is one of my easier-to-read designs, but I still feel it looks cool and stylish enough to be presented here.
