Andrew says: In the future humanity is extinct & only the artificial intelligence machines initially created by man remain. These Androids have created a time portal to travel in the past & try to save humans from their own environmental , political, historical mistakes. Cybernetic is inspired by Peter’s Edge wristwatch.
Sam says: This watch concept is a proposal for the usage of an accelerometer. The tilting angle of the watch could define the look of the display. Only one special angle lets the watch show the time in a readable fashion. The wearer could define this angle by pressing a button when facing the display. Doing so would RESET the display. Any other angle different from the defined one, causes the numbers to dissolve. The bigger the tilting angle, the stronger the effect.
Heather says: In an attempt to “change the way I think about time”, I pondered ways of telling time that could be different. In doing so, I thought about an hourglass, which led to the creation of rounded digits that could appear to fill an hourglass.
Jose says: I could say that this idea came to me after exciting reading about the machine “Enigma”, developed by the Germans to encrypt their messages during II World War, or has been the result of using a metalanguage as Leetspeak, or such once a strange code suggested by a science fiction movie, but none of this would be true. The truth, is that the idea came accidentally to stay absorbed looking at the mini keyboard of my Macbook; suddenly, there it was, the first line of keys, and above each number a symbol, and thus the ¡1 to 0!.
Kisai Online is the seventh fan-submitted concept to become reality from the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog. The conceptual idea for Kisai Online was submitted in October 2011 by a reader of the blog and fan of Tokyoflash, Samuel Jerichow from Germany. Continue reading →
Ron says: I was playing around withe the iPad tilt function and wondered if I could make it work into a watch.
The watch should be sleek, sophisticated and simple. You see a lot of tiny cubes. By changing the tilt of the watch you change direction the light shines on the cubes. The numbers also consists of the same cubes but they stay the same so you can see them by changing the rest of the cubes by tilting the watch. Sounds hard but it is simple.
Sam says: Since I made my tilt sensitive watch concept, I thought about a more impressive way to use a tilt sensor. Gravity is a concept, in which the numbers aren’t attached to the display as we know it but freely falling around, depending on the orientation of the watch. Continue reading →
Using an accelerometer or tilt sensor, the interface of this design rotates adding an interesting element of movement to the design and to ensure that the current minutes are always aligned at the 12 o’clock position. Continue reading →

Tokyoflash Says: We love the idea of accelerometer in a watch and having liquid graphics sloshing around on your wrist. This idea really has potential! If you splash the display around though, how can you tell the time? Well, im sure there would be some nifty way to keep a marker of some kind – perhaps its oil & water, so the lower level doesn’t slosh too much and the liquid above is just for fun rather than time telling.
The time level could be a physical barrier between the oil & water and when you move the watch around the two liquids bubble into each other, but you can still see the line between them, like a kind of lava lamp snow storm – lots of possibilities im sure!
