memorywatch

Design Submitted by Heather Sable from USA.

I wanted to develop an idea for a fun interactive watch. Inspired by the game Simon, this watch tells you the time by lighting up colored buttons in a particular order. If you cannot tell the time by simply following the animated light display, you can play the memory game to display the time digitally. (or, if you give up, press a different button that automatically displays the time digitally.)
