Design submitted by Justin from the UK.
Justin says: I was doing the usual search on the internet for inspiration, logos, weird shapes or scientific influences and I saw the Cern logo (The LHC or Large Hadron Collider) and I was intrigued by the swirl effect and how lines ran off of it. That simple shape gave the impression of movement and velocity…thus, Centrifuge was born.
Centrifuge is based on the typical analogue format of clock/watch face, 12 at the top, 6 at the bottom…(you know the kind). When the touch sensor at the center of the watch face is pressed the LED’s spin around (see animation) then the hour & minute hands shoot off from the center and point to the relevant time. Single minutes are located in the center of the display and count from 0-9.
If you like bright and flashy with a hint of futuristic then this one is for you. Time telling is quite easy on this too so it won’t be sneered at by those who don’t wish to devote ages in mastering the method of telling the time. There could be a number of animations capable on this layout also, these could be a real eyecatcher.
The bright LED’s and the colours possible could make this design really stand out, not forgetting the animations too! If technologically possible, this could be the first hybrid watch with both LED’s (for the hands) and EL-Paper (for the 1 x Mins), the EL-Paper would make the center numbers really stand out and coupled with the funky touch sensor to activate the watch I’d hope it really turns heads.
