Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: I designed “Sequence” to balance simplicity and complexity.  The appearance is always complex, but Mode 0 is easy and simple to read.  Mode 3, on the other hand, is logically simple to read, but difficult enough to provide mental exercise for those who want it.

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: “This watch design is based on one of my puzzle ideas and, although it looks baffling initially, is actually incredibly easy to understand. It is called “Domino FX” because of the 4 domino-like figures in the display.

tsumu_watch_grey

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Tsumu” after the Japanese word meaning “to stack”.

Instead of having 4 relatively small digits displayed beside each other, as with conventional digital watches, I thought it might be fun to make them much larger and of different shades, colours and thicknesses and stacked on top of each other so that, while they might still be easily recognizable to the initiated, they might just seem like a meaningless array of colourful shapes to everyone else. That said, the time and date can be displayed as an animation by pressing the appropriate button twice, so that the digits are revealed one after another in order from the bottom to the top.

The game is over when you run into your own tail or the edges of the screen.

Design submitted by Ignacio  from Spain.

trio_full_1

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 »
