August 4th, 2014
color by color_for the blog main page

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: I wanted a watch that was using 3-4 blocks for the hour/month and color changing LED’s for when the blocks are used for the 2nd/3rd/etc series of numbers. For the minute, I wanted 2 big digits for the minute/day.

I wanted to use a 1 piece lens & add a grid over it. The best size is a challenge. This is why I did 3 pictures/2 3D models. Engraving the lens was another option.

2ofTWO smartwatch brings you closer to the collective.

March 14th, 2014
2ofTWO-004

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: The name is “Borgy” in origin, as the watch will be linked to a smart phone creating a small collective. The phone will be “1 of TWO”

The basic premise for my design is that the borders of the icons tell the time in an always-on column on the display. This column is easily seen as it is displayed inverted to the rest of the display and continues a contrasting stripe that runs through the strap. (I have used a metallic LCD with black background for my examples. This used in conjunction will coloured glass gives a nice contrast)

Design Submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: The watch colors are inspired by the amber, green, and white monochrome monitors from the early days of personal computing.  The strap is like gray ribbon cables.  The square shape — a CPU.  Overall, the design is meant to evoke nostalgia for the vintage computing experience.  Even people who did not live through it have seen it in countless movies and TV shows, and associate that imagery with classic computer cool.
