Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Supernova” a back to basics LED watch design.
Supernova uses a time telling method that I used on a previous design called “Hypercoil”
Hypercoil used LCD segments arranged in a spring shaped coil that descrided 15 minute incruments in 12 rows. An eliptical ring of segments described single minutes.
Supernova uses a similar system but this time around arranged in a circular array.
There are 12 rows of 4 LEDs highlighting the 12 hour positions of an analogue clock.
Each LED describes a 15 minute incrument. There are a further 14 or 15 LEDs outside of this array that describe single minutes.
This layout could also display alarm and date modes.
In date mode I propose that the 15 single LEDs could describe the months and the rows of LEDs describe the days.
This design is simple and bold and would perform fun animations so should appeal to people who like fun products. The star like theme should appeal to sci-fi fans and people into astronomy.
The funky yet simple display arrangement and intuative time telling sets this design apart from others.
