Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: The Rorschach LED watch concept is a more technical approach to the topic of symmetric symbols. While the Rorschach Epaper watch looks to the past, the LED watch concept looks to the future.
I gave the numbers and the watch a sharp and edgy style and the symmetry does its own part to let the design get through your eyes right into your brain.
Again there are three different display modes. The normal mode shows the numbers with a simple reflection. In cryptic mode the segments extend until they meet another number. This isn’t done with every segment – there is a balance between the cryptic connections and remaining readability. Segments that end up in air either extend alot more or they recieve a dot just to add some variety to the display. More such dots could be used as indicators for date and alarm, similar to the Epaper watch. Once you mastered the cryptic display mode, you can proceed. In mental mode I am using the numbers from my Volt LED watch concept, where I kept away the middle segments of the digits. Mixing these numbers with the number style of the cryptic display mode creates very different displays throughout the day. The combination of added conncections and removed segments creates some nice confusing little artworks.
I’d wish this watch to have an animation mode, letting the display illuminate from time to time, showing off the mix of machine code and tribal symbols impressing present people with future stuff. But being off should still mean looking cool of course.
So this is the Rorschach LED watch concept.
