Design submitted by Gordon from the USA.

Gordon says: I came upon this idea when contemplating one of those pin plates that are fun to put your face in.

Time is read digitally, but the display is produced by a matrix of individually controlled pins. This watch will not only have touch screen controls, it will also react as a fluid with ripples made when touched.I see the screen behaving as a low res mechanical display with limitless graphics opportunities.I apologise for showing only a couple but I hope I have made my point.

January 24th, 2012
Sphere 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Traditional wrist watches tend to tell the time in a very 2D format, I am fascinated by the idea of using 3D to tell the time. I decided to use a sphere as it is about as 3D as it gets, also a sphere is omni-directional which lends it self to telling the time using more than one axis. Read the rest of this entry »

Tricircle 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was visiting the gym and noticed various posters promoting the 2012 olympic games. The main image associated with the olympics are the olympic rings, a set of interlinked coloured rings. I started thinking that it would be nice to use interlinked rings to tell the time. The result looks similar to the trinity symbol.
