Galen says: There are many designs of watches that use binary numeral system to represent time. I wanted to use a different numeral system which looks cryptic and in the same time needs less calculation then binary.
Wilhelm says: The Taiko LED concept is an inspiration of a combination of Dieter Ram’s work and the analogue dialS of classic radio receivers to create a minimalistic watch with a retro sci-fi aviation appearance.
Wilhelm says: The idea for this watch module came from the square metal grids used in the building industry, combined with 2 methods for reading time, the normal digital “grid” mode for easy time telling and the “quattro” binary method for reading digital time, hence the name “Quattrogrid”.
Chingiz says: I sat by the river and thought why modern watches don’t tell the true time. Because all known classic and digital watches repeat everyday. But we consume our lives/time/ like water, fuel or cigarettes and we must see it being exhausted constantly.
Andrew says: It often said that insects would be the only creatures to survive a nuclear holocaust or by the chemical toxic pollution to the air earth & water cause by the manufacturing or by burning fossil fuels. So perhaps in another couple of million years’ time Insect humanoid tell time using Hive: Cellular, system to tell the clock time or date.
Wilhelm says: Quattro 2.0 – This is a revamp of my first Quattro design on which the One-6 concept was based. The idea started as a new concept LCD using a “new” “binary” idea, but I realised this can be a pure LCD, a LED or a LCD with a patterned template over the LCD.
Wilhelm says: The ONE-6: Counting LED lights on a binary watch is nothing new, but sometimes it is very difficult to read the time, so I came up with a similar idea, but with an easier way to remember the value of each LED by only using the numbers 1 to 4.
