SuujiMaru Watch transforms numbers into alien symbols.

May 25th, 2012

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This concept began experimentally with sketching for hexagon based numbers. After a while, the numbers developed into these round ones, that consist of six circle segments and a center dot. I played with the number layout and soon everything reminded me of some sci-fi technology.
I continued with this theme and so SuujiMaru was born. Read the rest of this entry »

Division LCD Watch tells time in segments.

Division Preview Animation

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have noticed a trend with the latest releases of new watches that TF prefer designs that are simple/feasible and predominately LCD.

So I decided to create a watch which fitted this criteria. I had two designs in mind, one was a four dialled lcd analogue design that shared the same time telling method a “hunter time killer” and a new time telling method which involves lines dissecting a shape to create numbers of segments. I decided to merge these designs to create a very simple time telling method that would be very easy to implement. Division was born. Read the rest of this entry »

Triangulation watch inspired by 80s video game.

01 - Model

Design submitted by Dietrich from Australia.

Dietrich says : This idea was inspired by my inaccurate memory of a 1980s video game called Qix, and also by sun-dials. I originally had two watch ideas – one for the outer triangles and for an inner triangle, so I merged the two.

Tilt watch uses light, shadows to tell time.

May 16th, 2012

Design submitted by Ron from The Netherlands.

Ron says: I was playing around withe the iPad tilt function and wondered if I could make it work into a watch.

The watch should be sleek, sophisticated and simple. You see a lot of tiny cubes. By changing the tilt of the watch you change direction the light shines on the cubes. The numbers also consists of the same cubes but they stay the same so you can see them by changing the rest of the cubes by tilting the watch. Sounds hard but it is simple.

Inside-Out LCD watch stacks up time digits

May 7th, 2012

Design submitted by Heather from the USA

Heather says: After designing the digits for my n-gon display concept, I found that I could make digits similar to those that would stack well, since they have no middle.

I thought it would be fun to have the time read from the inside-out, since it allows a changing look to the display every minute, and because it allows for a descriptive and catchy name, “Inside-out”. Read the rest of this entry »

KAZU displays time as anagram

March 22nd, 2012

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This concept watch design is called “Kazu” after the Japanese word meaning ‘numbers’. I thought it would be fun to create a watch that uses the letters that make up the numbers 0 to 9 instead of the digits themselves and present them in a puzzling way.

‘Ripple’ e-paper watch adds texture to display time.

March 20th, 2012

Design submitted by Devindh from the UK.

Devindh says: Project ‘ripple’. I watched a presentation on youtube from CES 2012 about the current state of e-paper devices (mainly from e-ink). One aspect of this technology that stood out for me is its ability to maintain curvature and still be legible/functional. I decided to create a design with this as the main focus.

January 30th, 2012

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: Wordclouds are a new phenomenon that has shown up in internet culture. It seems that a watch using E-ink that displays a wordcloud of the current time or date in interesting fonts would be a cool thing to have on your wrist. From this idea Clouds emerged. Read the rest of this entry »

Connected watch design merges lines to tell time

November 24th, 2011
2 lateral

Design submitted by Ignacio  from Spain.

Ignacio  says: Curiously, I had a pencil which projected three shadows. That inspired me for a design that, after modification, resulted in this design (which is quite different, the original design consisting of circles). Read the rest of this entry »

Trio watch design puts time-telling into gear.

November 7th, 2011

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I was trying to find something new, thinking about ratios of rotation for each hand. An image of three sprockets came to mind, each with a ratio of 60:61 relative to the one before. Thus the minute hand rotates one revolution more than the second hand every minute. Read the rest of this entry »

At Tokyoflash this design got us thinking. Its a simple idea, but we think it would be popular with anyone studying science especially Chemistry of course. In the past we have had a few watches that really grabbed the attention of a certain group. For example, the Morse Code watch was very popular with Radio enthusiasts. Read the rest of this entry »

Augmented Reality E-Paper Concept Watch Design

October 13th, 2011

A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.

An original concept watch design that uses an e-paper display to present the time. The overall appearance of the watch is pure and simple. The white block in the centre of the screen display the time in binary (hours 1, 2, 4, 8 on the top row and minutes 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 on the bottom two rows). Combinations of these numbers indicate the time. For example, if the 8 hour light was out and the 1 and 2 minute lights were out, the time would be 8:03. Read the rest of this entry »
