Hexahedron 01

RESET watch tilts time to your wrist movement.

June 7th, 2013

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This watch concept is a proposal for the usage of an accelerometer. The tilting angle of the watch could define the look of the display. Only one special angle lets the watch show the time in a readable fashion. The wearer could define this angle by pressing a button when facing the display. Doing so would RESET the display. Any other angle different from the defined one, causes the numbers to dissolve. The bigger the tilting angle, the stronger the effect.
