Edge – A Watch Design For Bio-Mechanically Enhanced Humans

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: “I was driving in my car and I noticed a trend with modern cars to have strip LED tail lights and running lights (halo style lights). This got me thinking about digits being displayed in thin strip light shapes. I then imagined these forms extruded and metallic and ended up with this watch design.

The time on this watch design is displayed in a very conventional digital style, the four metallic “ribbons” display a single digit each. The display is activated by controls in the chunky asymmetric strap in the form of the KISAI logo, these controls would include time, date, animation and settings.

Although the inspiration is from a fairly mundane and conventional source the result looks like something from a post-apocalyptic future where the machines have already taken over.┬áThis watch design would look good on any bio-mechanically enhanced human or would-be cyborg fighting for the resistance… or your average Joe on the high street!

I think the display method using the metallic “ribbons” seperates this design from others. This format means that the electronic internals are now housed in the chunky asymmetric strap, which would also house the controls (inside the enlarged KISAI logo) and any necessary ports etc. The packaging is different but the technology is proven.”

      1. I thought it looked like something that a style conscious cy-borg would wear so I got one to model. Glad you like it Lloyd, thanks for the comment! :)

This beautiful bracelet tells time in the good traditional way with four stylish numbers and is the perfect accessory for the modern cyborg. Love and energy to everyone. Don’t forget the new emotion download at 50.00. Tokyoflash, we made you look.” 5*/YES/where is my time machine

  4. I love the idea…but too chunky for me to wear. Creative idea to have the electronic internals housed in the strap. If it was adapted for a more feminine, less chunky version, I would wear it. 5* for creativity. :D

    1. I do think it would be possible to do a more compact version with softer lines perhaps, depending on packaging. So anythings possible, Im glad you like the priciple if not the proportions. Thanks for the feedback! :)

  7. Industrial, masculine, and stylish at the same time. I could see engineers and techies especially loving this.

    1. Yeah in its current form it is probably a bit industrial to suit a ladies wrist. But I could imagine a smaller softer version with a few more curves that may appeal to the fairer sex, if TF chose to take it further.
      Thanks for the comment Diane! :)

    1. Hi Acan,
      Crikey thats a great comment! Thats one hell of a compliment to be one of your favorite designers too! Im glad you like the concept, I submitted another design using a similar principle which is probably more makeable, hopefully it will hit the blog eventually too. Thanks for the comment and the hypothetical stars!

    1. Hi Charles,

      I imagine that the illuminated faces are very thin stip LEDs similar to the ones used in Night Vision.
      Obviously I dont know how physically large the parts of the LED are that you cant see on that model.
      But if they turn out to be too large it would be possible for the ribbons to be made of a coated transparent material connected to leds contained inside the strap by fibreoptics. There would need to be a tape style cable connecting the two.
      Failing that there could be a body at the base of the ribbons with the leds inside which would require mirrored faces to give the hollow look.
      I have submitted another concept on that basis which hopefully will hit soon.
      Obviously this is merely a concept at this stage which may be or may not be physically possible it its current format. Im glad you like the concept! We will just have to wait and see if TF think its possible or more importantly think its worth researching! Thanks for the compliment on my renderings!, they are slowly improving! Thanks for the comment! :D

    1. Hi Adam,

      Im glad you like the concept and thanks for the comments on the things you like.
      Regarding your comments and suggestions:
      -If the design is feasible I would imagine that TF would be able to use all the current range of LED colours that they already use, so there should be plenty of choice.
      - The black strap on the black and metal version would be plastic so that is covered, I agree that a leather/leather effct strap would be nice especially with a steel or chrome housing.
      - usb could be easily incorporated into the a-symentric strap and would proabbaly be a standard feature as it is for other models in the range.
      - The strap clasp would be something that TF know plenty more about than me, I used a butterfly stype clasp on the concept which I have never had issues with on my own personal watches but this is something that im sure TF consider.

      Thanks for the positive words and the appreciated feedback Adam! :D

  14. The numbers, the edges, the case, the straps – all super cool. Maybe too much for 2012′s Tokyoflash but a piece of cake for Skynet’s Tokyoflash division of 2027. Wherever, whenever, this watch rocks.
