Stylux watch design uses next-gen tech

December 2nd, 2011

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Magnetic INCH watch: Customise your own design.

November 29th, 2011

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This project ran under the working title “chameleon” just like my Canvas watch concept did. I have fun, creating adaptable concepts. It’s a contemporary feature because it’s fun to customise. Canvas was a relatively high tech version of the chameleon idea. This watch – Inch – is a haptical and simple version. One inch, that is the width of a strap in any flexible material which you can stick into the watch and therefore adapting it to your taste. Read the rest of this entry »

Ascension watch requires a different perspective to tell time.

November 17th, 2011

Design submitted by Peter from the UK & Sam from Germany.

Peter & Sam say: The initial idea for this LED watch came from the so called Penrose Stairs. These imaginary stairs let you walk up eternally by stepping on the same steps again and again each cycle. From a certain perspective, real life models can look like the often seen images. From another perspective you can see, it wouldn’t work. This perspective dependency guided us to the display and the time reading. Read the rest of this entry »
