Design submitted by José from Spain.
José says: Once again, I would like to share with you this new concept of reading and displaying time. DOTSCREEN watch.
DOTSCREEN, has its origin in a grid formed by 60 dots (or graphic signs: letters, symbols, shapes … etc) in horizontal and 60 vertical columns, equivalents to 3600 dots, each dot represents 1 second so that the entirety of the grid represents 1 hour.
To show how run time, the screen is always ON. The procedure followed is the color inversion, meaning that if the dot is white will become black or vice versa according to the design of the numbers that appear the hours. I think you can use E-PAPER technology, LCD or TFT.
The seconds reading is done horizontally and vertically the minutes. The color background and filling the numbers are white or black and are alternated, so if the background is white the number will be black and vice versa in the new screen that will go appearing as the seconds will elapse.
I think DOTSCREEN is easy to understand and read, is a new concept, unique and very versatile, so you may like to many kinds of people because it supports several finishes and several combinations between materials.
For enhanced accuracy and comfort to read and measuring time, I added in the left, right and bottom of the bezel indicators numbers of minutes and seconds respectively by means of LEDs that light up progressively according to the information displayed in screen 5, 10, 15 … corresponding to the minutes and 15, 30, 45, to the seconds.
A small touch display allows us to see the date, alarms, or display the time according what the user selects. After preset time of this information, this display is in standby mode until the user decides to go back again.
I hope you enjoy this new concept. Thanks for the comments and ratings.
