CRAX_LED_0925

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

May 25th, 2012
Division Preview Animation

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have noticed a trend with the latest releases of new watches that TF prefer designs that are simple/feasible and predominately LCD.

I had two designs in mind, one was a four dialled lcd analogue design that shared the same time telling method a “hunter time killer” and a new time telling method which involves lines dissecting a shape to create numbers of segments. I decided to merge these designs to create a very simple time telling method that would be very easy to implement. Division was born. Read the rest of this entry »

May 16th, 2012
tilt2

Design submitted by Ron from The Netherlands.

Ron says: I was playing around withe the iPad tilt function and wondered if I could make it work into a watch.
