Timeline LED watch uses motion to display time

Design submitted by Zoltan from Hungary.

Zoltan says: I wanted to created a watch that looks special, but you couldn’t tell at first glance what it is.

Nevertheless it’s easy to tell the time by looking at it.

The watch has 13 LEDs in a single row.The LEDs are controlled by an accelerometer and as you shake your hand they light up at the appropriate time to show the digits.

Pyramid LED watch left behind by ancient aliens.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This time I liked to make an expressive watch based upon a pyramid. I was inspired by the theory, that the big pyramid in Giza (also: Gize, Gizeh) or mayan pyramids were build by aliens. The pyramids influence architecture in sci-fi movies so why not a watch? This I thought a futuristic alien pyramid watch would be cool.

OctoThorpe LED watch is a digital watch with a cryptic twist.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The inspiration for this watch came from the number sign (hash, pound sign, rarely octothorp in different variations). This symbol divides an area into nine squares.

I sketched around for a digital display and quickly came to the double square numbers, you can see in the images. I took the name Octothorpe due to it’s emphasis on the number 8. There are 8 squares forming the time display and each of them is made of 8 segments.

CRAX watch breaks up time into fragments.

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.
