Design submitted by Scott from the UK.
Scott says: I’ve watched a fair amount of sci-fi, from Star Trek to The Matrix and of course Tron! ;-) In nearly all of these there are super hi-tech computers and interfaces that look unbelievably complex, almost impossible to understand; yet they always have someone happily pushing buttons seemingly understanding everything?!
I’ve always thought they must know something we don’t, there must be some kind of trick or some sort of ‘code’. So i decided to see if i could come up with my own interface/display that would look like gibberish to most, and obvious to others. Kind of like the dreaded ‘Blue screen of death’ on a broken computer.
I also love a-symmetrical designs so that is the design brief of the overall look. I’ve made the top of the straps raised slightly to give a ‘clamp’ effect around the face.
I have designed 3 colour choices: Matrix Green, Decepticon Purple and Blue (screen)
There’s nothing much cooler than a touch activated watch, therefore to activate Code you simply swipe down the right hand side of the watch (indicators will illuminate as you do).
At this point the watch will light up with what looks like random numbers, but telling the time is super easy. So easy in fact you can tell the day, hours, minutes and seconds at a glance (whilst others will be scratching their heads!)
To read the time you simply look at the last digits of every line (the date is the last 3 letters of the 3rd row)
Hopefully the animations add to the mystique of the watch.
What would be really cool would be if you could set the red herring/misleading numbers as memorable birthdays, passwords, telephone numbers etc via usb to a computer.
The large screen also lends itself to other features such as bluetooth synchronisation with mobile phones to display incoming calls.
Hopefully this should appeal to sci-fi geeks like myself and anyone that loves computers and technology.
