Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This concept watch design is called “Kazu” after the Japanese word meaning ‘numbers’. I thought it would be fun to create a watch that uses the letters that make up the numbers 0 to 9 instead of the digits themselves and present them in a puzzling way.

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.

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.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: The inspiration for this concept is based on the old mobile phone game “Snake”.The premiss for the game: you control a snake, around the screen pixel blocks appear which you try to intercept. As your snake eats the blocks the snake gets longer and longer.
The game is over when you run into your own tail or the edges of the screen.

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 »
