Firdaus says: Personally speaking, I have get my hand a Sony android smart watch that cost $100. Pretty decent for an OLED watch. I also aware of Pebble watch and other smart watches that pretty decent functioned and priced. When first time I get info about Tf making a segmented LCD or LED smart watch, I ask myself, how to make the smart watch compete with other decent watches available out there? How to make it is worth it to have a watch with this limitation. How to justify the price tag?
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.
