Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Say says: The initial idea was to combine the time telling numbers into one shape, one symbol, one thing that looks interesting and has the important information visible all the time.

After playing around with different ways to interlace numbers, the result was stacking two pairs of numbers upon each other, a big one and a small one. The big background numbers tell the hours (or the months). The small foreground numbers tell the minutes (or the days). Read the rest of this entry »

Turbine LCD Preview Ani

Following the popularity of the original Turbine I decided  that I would like to make a more feasible version, as this seemed to be the biggest stumbling block with the original.

decypher_9

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Decypher”. The display may look mysterious at first, but is actually very easy to decipher once you know the trick behind it.

Decypher has both a time and date mode. To see the digits in either mode, all you have to do is ignore the triangles and you’ll see that the remaining lines form digits. A cool feature of the display is that every digit, apart from the 8, can be displayed in more than one way by simply displaying different combinations of triangles. There is an explanatory diagram below. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says : While sketching some abstract digits with a goal of filling the display, I found that overlapping some of the digits made a nice geometric pattern.  Then I thought about M.C. Escher, and some of his sketches of “impossible objects”, which has always been an intriguing concept for me.  In my attempt to make the display look impossible, I instead found that the digits I had made appeared to be all tangled up, hence the name “TANGLED”.  I then decided to include a pattern in the strap, which is reminiscent of the display format.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Say says: I was sketching for a stylish way to transform the classic 7-segment numbers. One day I thought about how these numbers would look, if seen through a perforated metal plate. Its holes would have a different visual density depending on how much lines meet underneath.
This is where the idea for Digital Density was born.
