Pater says: Some time ago I did a couple of co-ops with Sam called “Origami” and “Mugen-Kido” which both shared a body and strap consisting of folded strip material. I wanted to re-use that principle in a more subtle futuristic manner than would have a TF old school feel.
Logan says: The watch colors are inspired by the amber, green, and white monochrome monitors from the early days of personal computing. The strap is like gray ribbon cables. The square shape — a CPU. Overall, the design is meant to evoke nostalgia for the vintage computing experience. Even people who did not live through it have seen it in countless movies and TV shows, and associate that imagery with classic computer cool.
Tom says: I am currently at the second year of a Bachelordegree in Mediadesign. This idea came to me during a schoolproject in a class named “Informationdesign”, where we had to choose amongst different kind of topics in a mandatory exercise (we had to pass in order to get to take the exams). I chose one where we was supposed to make a new watchdial to tell time. I passed, but since the design had no other purpose that to show my teacher I thought it would be great to enter this contest with it.
Cory says: The watch is a Touch screen LCD/LED hybrid. It uses a dot matrix composed of Triangles instead of squares. I made this design very music friendly, when a track from your playlist comes up, you can swipe right for next, left for previous. The outer ring is not dissimilar to Rogue Touch and On Air, so the functionality will be familiar to Tokyoflash fans.
Firdaus says: A fusion of two couple of elements; usability and style, cryptic and futuristic, bars and numbers, presented in fusion of two material, stainless steel and silicon, opaque and transparent, this is the Kisai Fused, concept design.
