Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

I was inspired by an older blog entry posted by Tokyoflash that used two colors of LEDs to count the time: http://www.tokyoflash.com/blog/2010/02/time-to-streamline/ The Retro-bot LED watch concept is meant to be similar to the classic Tokyoflash watches, but instead of using counting to tell the time, the display shows a distorted version of the digital time.
