Ignacio says: This is a redesign of my first idea published on tokyoflash blog, Ronu. I always loved my first idea, but in 2011 (the year I designed it), I had no idea of 3D, as you can see. It’s some ugly the design I did, isn’t?
That’s why I redesign it, trying to do the best I know to date, trying to refresh it, to upgrade it.
Anders says: Scribbling away one day, I sketched a display with curving lines across it. It looked to me like some sort of scanner display as seen in countless SF films. A few more lines and I had a concept; Astrolabe. The always-on OLED display adds visual punch.
Mark says: Medieval times being one of my interests, I started a chainmaille project which led me to start replicating different chainmaille weaves in blender for fun. In doing so I messed about with trying to come up with digits and 4-1 came into being.
Heather says: My brother thought up the phrase “SPLIT SECOND”, and this concept was born. I thought, maybe I can make a display that is mostly seconds, but split them in half so there is constant movement on a large portion of the display. Then I made the hours and minutes smaller and squeezed them in between the top and bottom of the seconds.
