Design submitted by Andrew from the UK.
Andrew says: Babbage: Is inspired by Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine basically a mechanical computer designed during the Industrial revolution during the Victorian era by Charles Babbage. However this design uses no actual Mechanical or moving parts just digital representations of Moving Gears / cogs & drive shafts.
The display uses a series of virtual shafts & gear wheels to display the various elements of the displays:
Top Drive Shaft / Gear Mode Display Indicator: Alarm, Time (Default), Date.
The Center Shaft & Gears display the digits in pairs: Hours: 00 to 23 / Days: 01st to 31st & Minutes: 00 to 59 / Months: 01: Jan to 12: Dec.
The bottom shaft & Gears are used for the AM / PM indicator.
This concept will appeal to people within the Steam Punk community & has a mechanical / Industrial theme.
The user can not only has multiple LED back light Colors to choose from but they are also able to select from three display style Formats: Style A: Black Gears / Black Digits,Style B (Default): Black Gears / White Digits & Style C: Black & White Gears / LED Back light Color Digits.
