03_PELUKO

Design submitted by Jozze from Spain.

This design is like a piece of electronic bracelet jewelry.  The use of randomly lit LEDs instead of precious stones plays with the concept of uniqueness and individuality, and the LED mixed with the aluminum case and leather watch strap gives the watch a cyberpunk characteristic.

WATCH THIS watch design

digitalwordslook

Submitted by Heather from the USA.

I was thinking it would be neat to come up with a concept that includes a play on words.  The display will say “WATCH THIS” – which is meant to grab your attention – especially on a WATCH!  Then a press of the button will display the time in an interesting way, which certainly is something to watch.

Flying Watch – LEDs in Orbit

October 4th, 2010
FlyingWatch-Project-1

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

The innovation in this concept LED watch is the “Free Push” which enables the LEDs to illuminate with the push of a finger or other body part without using the other hand, with a”beep” sound when pressed on the half-sphere center (see figure below). “If you have one hand occupied, you can turn the clock on against the cheek or on the hip!” Read the rest of this entry »

Future Bling Watch Design

October 4th, 2010
Future-bling

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Pink acrylic cut like gemstones rises from a slender silver frame.  Behind each gemstone is a violet LED.  The large gemstones in the center light up to show a digit 1-9 (all off for 0), the singles minutes.  The position of the lit gemstone at the top and bottom shows the tens of minutes 1-5 (all off for 0).  The position of the lit gemstone on the left and right shows the hours 1-12.  The way the small gemstones align with the big ones in the center makes it easy to read their position.

Scaled Watch Design Concept

October 1st, 2010

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

The idea for this watch came from the vernier scale used on calipers and micrometers, combined with the copy protection gadget for the old Amiga game Indiana Jones and Fate of Atlantis.

Time is told by three rings, the middle one a stationary reference ring with six marks lit by hidden red LEDs to match the wrist band color.  The inner ring tells the hours with similar marks lit by white LEDs, and the outer ring tells the minutes, also in white LEDs. Read the rest of this entry »
