Gamer’s LED Watch Concept

September 29th, 2010

Design submitted by Lukasz from Poland.

At a glance, this watch looks more like a gaming gadget than a device to tell time. But it tells time alright. The violet LEDs indicate hours, 5-minute segment for the greens, and single minutes for the blue ones. The orange dot indicates AM or PM. It’s a very easy read with a twist of fun.

Alternative Digital Display watch

September 28th, 2010

Design Submitted by Heather Sable from USA.

The idea came from thinking about a new way to display time as “digital”.  I designed “digits” that can be used to represent 1 through 12, or 0-9 as needed.  The new “digits” are based on analog number placement, which is familiar to many.

Which Way? Unique LED watch design.

September 28th, 2010

Submitted by Heather from USA.

Since people are familiar with number placement on an analog clock, it is simple to work from there.

The design is called “Which Way?”  The arrows on the face accentuate this concept.  To read it, the main numbers we look for are 12, 3, 6, and 9.  The watch points which way from there the hours (big arrow) or minutes (small arrow) appear. i.e. up from the 3 hour position would be 2, or left from the 6 (30 min) position would be 7 (35 min). There are 4 triangles in the center that light up as single minutes.

September 28th, 2010

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

ixtrio watch concept

September 27th, 2010

Submitted by Augustin from Switzerland

The idea of the X shape comes from a traffic light’s sign (the red one) I was staring at this sign for long minutes, highly concentrated, to make it become green… my thinking slowly derivated far from the goal, but reached an unexpected idea…

The result of the 3 X and the other digits is nicely geometrical and lets many possibilities to display time, date, chrono and may be other functions. Despite a completely different way of displaying time than the classic hands, I think it is still easy to read. With training, it even must be quite quick to get it. Isn’t it the spirit of Tokyoflash ?
