Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I was trying to think of ways to make cryptic digits using an LCD display consisting of simple blocks which could be easily animated. A graphic equalizer instantly came to mind.
Now obviously since OTOs release another graphic equalizer watch seems a bit un-necessary but the combining of the digits and the iconic imagery was too much to resist.
The time is very simply told by digits shown in negative by gaps between a lower and upper graphic equalizer arrangement. Various number styles and different information could be described with this method. A reveal mode could be included for when time is of the essence. The display could be inverted and backlit in a variety of colours.
Like OTO the display could be influenced by a microphone when the time is not required.
The watch could also include a built in MP3 player to continue the theme and supply the sounds for the graphic equalizer.
The watch has a MP3 player look to continue the theme which gives the design a clean and intuative feel. The watch should be slim and compact to appeal to the majority of customers.
The combination of the graphic equalizer and time gives the watch an animated display that helps it stand out from others. The sleek and simple look also helps it stand out.
