Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: Somebody asked me the time the other day across a busy office and I found myself gesturing the time across the office with my hands rather than having to shout. I then thought this is a pretty universal method of communicating numbers and would suit an LCD display, “Digitz” was born.
The time is told by 4-6 hand shaped icons, the top 2or3 hands display the hours and the bottom 2or3 hands display the minutes (this would work easily well for the date).
A closed hand for example = 0, a thumb =1 a finger and thumb=2 etc.
I think this design is fun and would probably suit young people and people who like products that don’t take themselves too seriously. This design might also be helpful for teaching children numbers and time telling or people who have numeral dyslexia.
The handy looking display and bright colours set this design from others.
The simple Icons lend themselves to traditional LCD but look interesting without any unnecessary details, giving the design an air of viability.
