LED Watch with User Actuation To Reveal Time

August 12th, 2013

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: “This is “Actuator”, an evolution of my “Hybrid” design.

Razor LED watch reflects iconic phone design

July 15th, 2013
Razor 010

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: A few years ago before the advent of the modern smart phone, mobile phones were far more varied and styled. They weren’t dominated by a huge screen so had to be sleek and interesting in their own right. My favourite phone of this era was the Motorola Razr, it was a sleek thin clam shell style phone with two separate screens and a super sexy metallic key pad. The key pad looked uber futuristic (at the time) with its metallic finish, illuminated numbers and dividing lines and tactile feel. This is what inspired my “Razor” watch.

Phi-Ocular could be watching YOU.

June 27th, 2013

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to think of a really intuitive analogue style time telling method that could be easily made using an LCD display. I have played around on previous designs with rings that describe the hours (orbital decay) and others that use dots to highlight the analogue positions on a watch face (Tri-Ripple) so I decided to combine both of these elements.

June 14th, 2013
Vertebrae 07

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Ever since I started submitting designs for the blog I have been trying to think of a nice design based on Armour, Exoskeletons, and Mecha. This design is inspired by those things to achieve an bio-mechanical look. I wanted an industrial feel with a technical detailed look. “Vertebrae” is the result.  This one probably isn’t for the ladies.
