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.

Design submitted by Ignacio  from Spain.

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 »

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 »

An E-Paper Watch Design – This is Your Canvas

April 25th, 2011

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “Two things guided me to make this watch design. The first thing was the idea to make a wrist watch that the wearer can adapt as they please. The second thing was, I thought about why should one use e-paper for a watch? It is just black and white, has no background light and doesn’t look spectacular at all. The big benefit is, it can show anything you want (within the restriction, e-paper has) and the black-white is pretty artistic actually, so it was the perfect display type for my idea. And the word “spectacular” is subjective, you decide how the display on your watch looks! This watch is your canvas… Read the rest of this entry »

FOXI Concept E-Paper Watch Design

February 22nd, 2011

Design submitted by Sunci from Hungary.

Sunci says: “I simply had a dream about FOXI in which I saw every detail sharp and clear from the time-telling to the strap’s pattern, even the colours. The e-ink idea followed quickly, I wanted to create a watch that doesn’t require button pushing to check the time, but shows it constantly.
