CRAX_LED_0925

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says : I was looking at a digital clock whose traditional 7-segment digits were mostly trapezoidal, with a visible gap between the segments.  I thought, “Why do the segments need to be trapezoids?”  I sketched some digit layouts using various arrangements of seven polygon segments with pronounced spaces between them, until I came up with the CRAX digits.

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 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 »

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.

Sam says: The inspiration for this concept comes from barcodes. My idea was to use a barcode not just as stylish display element but to tell the time in a way, the wearer can actually decipher. In the industry next to the bars also the gaps between them contain information. This watch concept uses this principle. Read the rest of this entry »

Inside-Out LCD watch stacks up time digits

May 7th, 2012
inside-out_preview

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 »

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
