(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This design is inspired by a combination of sci-fi and the natural world. I wanted to come up with a design that has a simple clutter free bio-mechanical look with a retro feel that could be worn as a piece of jewellery that happens to also tell the time. “Tentacle” was the result which looks like a cross between an arm from a “War of the worlds” tripod and a crustacean.
The time is told by a simple LED display which is recessed into the front of the “Tentacles” head and activated by one of the two buttons located on either side.
The display describes the time in a unusual looking digital format, which could also show the date in the same format. The display would show animations at various times of day looking like some kind of alien eye.
The design has a simple elegant bio-mechanical form which looks like a piece of jewellery, this should give the design a uni-sex appeal. The sci-fi inspiration should help attract the techies and geeks amongst us.
The organic but engineered look combined with an unusual looking display separates this design from others.
