February 7th, 2012
Turbine LCD Preview Ani

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is Turbine LCD (MkII).

Following the popularity of the original Turbine I decided  that I would like to make a more feasible version, as this seemed to be the biggest stumbling block with the original.

This version uses a simple always on LCD display in conjunction with a moulded lens in the shape of the original version’s turbine blades. Read the rest of this entry »

Decypher watch turns digits into code.

February 6th, 2012
decypher_9

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Decypher”. The display may look mysterious at first, but is actually very easy to decipher once you know the trick behind it.

Decypher has both a time and date mode. To see the digits in either mode, all you have to do is ignore the triangles and you’ll see that the remaining lines form digits. A cool feature of the display is that every digit, apart from the 8, can be displayed in more than one way by simply displaying different combinations of triangles. There is an explanatory diagram below. Read the rest of this entry »

Tangled watch design gets the time all in a twist.

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says : While sketching some abstract digits with a goal of filling the display, I found that overlapping some of the digits made a nice geometric pattern.  Then I thought about M.C. Escher, and some of his sketches of “impossible objects”, which has always been an intriguing concept for me.  In my attempt to make the display look impossible, I instead found that the digits I had made appeared to be all tangled up, hence the name “TANGLED”.  I then decided to include a pattern in the strap, which is reminiscent of the display format.

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.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Say says: I was sketching for a stylish way to transform the classic 7-segment numbers. One day I thought about how these numbers would look, if seen through a perforated metal plate. Its holes would have a different visual density depending on how much lines meet underneath.
This is where the idea for Digital Density was born.

Sphere watch rotates the time in 3D

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 »

Design submitted by Hea’thër from Bluton & Sam from Germany.

Hea’thër & Sam say:  In 1947, a Blutonian vessel crash-landed on Earth, and in searching through the debris, scientists were fascinated to learn that objects that came from the planet Bluton glow purple when exposed to Earth’s atmosphere. In view of the fact that the vessel’s crew was never recovered, many believe that there are Blutonian natives living among us today, hiding in plain sight. You may even be able to recognize them by their sense of style – all have an affinity for objects that remind them of their home planet, objects that glow. Read the rest of this entry »
