A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.
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.
Accelerometers and tilt sensors are often used in digital cameras for the purpose of auto image rotation, in motion-sensitive hand held games and in devices such as smart phones for interface control.
In this LCD watch design, hours are indicated by numbers, the number that flashes indicates the current hour. The number that is shown in the 12 o’clock position indicates the current minute just like the numbers on a clock face, for example; 1 = 5 minutes, 2 = 10 minutes, 3 = 15 minutes, half way between 6 and 7 would be 32 minutes 30 seconds.
The concept uses an LED backlight to illuminate the display and would be made of stainless steel with either a black finish or a combination of black and brushed stainless areas.
