Tom says: I am currently at the second year of a Bachelordegree in Mediadesign. This idea came to me during a schoolproject in a class named “Informationdesign”, where we had to choose amongst different kind of topics in a mandatory exercise (we had to pass in order to get to take the exams). I chose one where we was supposed to make a new watchdial to tell time. I passed, but since the design had no other purpose that to show my teacher I thought it would be great to enter this contest with it.
Cory says: The watch is a Touch screen LCD/LED hybrid. It uses a dot matrix composed of Triangles instead of squares. I made this design very music friendly, when a track from your playlist comes up, you can swipe right for next, left for previous. The outer ring is not dissimilar to Rogue Touch and On Air, so the functionality will be familiar to Tokyoflash fans.
A subtle smart watch design that uses a circular display matrix to display the time & simple text messages & notification icons. The watch informs you of new emails, social chat (such as Skype or Facebook) as well as remaining you of calendar events & missed phone calls. You can also control your music while you are jogging by skipping tracks or pausing etc. The time is displayed in the bottom half of the watch face as regular digits.
The unassuming shape of the watch makes it easy for anyone to wear, but the tunnel-like display adds a touch of uniqueness.
Peter says: As blog regulars know I have a thing for industrial and mechanical designs. Im also a bit of a film buff and gamer and like futuristic cars and planes that often feature.
This design I guess is inspired by futuristic planes from film and games and has a little DNA from earlier designs like “hunter killer” and “drone”. This design is called “vtol” (vertical take off and landing) and features two jet engine like displays.
