Design submitted by Peter from the UK & Sam from Germany.

Peter & Sam say: The initial idea for this LED watch came from the so called Penrose Stairs. These imaginary stairs let you walk up eternally by stepping on the same steps again and again each cycle. From a certain perspective, real life models can look like the often seen images. From another perspective you can see, it wouldn’t work. This perspective dependency guided us to the display and the time reading. Read the rest of this entry »

Design Submitted by Devindh from the UK

Devindh says: I wanted to design a watch that had an emphasis on texture as well as displaying time. I decided that the angular pattern of digital displays would provide a good way to combine both of these things. Read the rest of this entry »

Wooden watch projects time though the grain.

Wood-Watch

Design submitted by Max from the USA.

I found a wall clock that looks like solid block of wood, but is actually a thin wood veneer over LEDs. As soon as i saw it I knew that I wanted it on my wrist.
The design is simple. A thin wood veneer covers LEDs, when you press the button the LEDs light up and the time shines through the wood. The time itself is as clear as possible, it’s just like a normal digital watch.

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: While viewing a droplet of water on high speed camera, I noticed two things. Each time the droplet enters the water, a smaller, lighter droplet bounces back to the surface, this happens many times over until the droplet is microscopic in size. Water droplets are also not tear drop shaped, but perfectly spherical. I wanted to make a timepiece that captured this.

2111 A.D.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: “I was trying to think of a simple manner of displaying the time based on an existing well know product. Dominoes fitted the bill perfectly. They are internationally recognised, and the dots give a very simple method of displaying the time.

Halftone – Analog Artprint Watch Design

October 24th, 2011
halftone_led_watch_design_preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam’s initial idea was to create an ever changing display which works with interference (short term change coming from the second hand) and color change (long term change coming from the hour and minute hands).  Halftone is actually a technique used in printing.  It works like an LED screen – it simulates any color by just using a few.  The difference from a LED screen is that it’s not limited to a rectangular grid.  The few colors of cyan, magenta, yellow (and black too) are applied in tiny dots.  From a certain distance, this dot pattern cannot be seen anymore and the basic colors seem to mix to the final motif.
