Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Pater says: Some time ago I did a couple of co-ops with Sam called “Origami” and “Mugen-Kido” which both shared a body and strap consisting of folded strip material. I wanted to re-use that principle in a more subtle futuristic manner than would have a TF old school feel.
In this design the strip material makes up the structure of the case as well creating three zones for the display. This arrangement lends itself nicely to a 12/5/9 layout in LEDs.
The diagonal middle zone describes the hours, the top horizontal zone displays the 5 x 10 min groups and the bottom horizontal shows the single minutes.
The LED lenses have a mesh like look to keep things interesting when the lights are off. The result has a retro futuristic look that could be straight off the set of the original Star-trek series. Oh yeah.. you might be asking yourself what does the name DEZ mean. Well in a nutshell like the display it looks like a backwards “ZED”😀
This design is very straight forward and easy to understand and should keep the old school TF fans happy. Th retro futuristic look should appeal to the geeks amongst us.
The simple geometry and metal strip structure framing single colour or multi colour sets this design apart from others.
