Fingerprint e-paper watch exposes digital time.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany & Peter from the UK.

Sam & Peter say: When Pete’s Bio-Metric fingerprint watch concept showed up in the blog, I was like nooooooooo because I had some display tests ready by then – great minds think alike! No other fingerprint concept has been made since then (2011!) so I took my drafts and showed them to Pete. I thought, if there is a new fingerprint watch concept, he should be involved.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Pater says: This design is inspired by the modern trend in car design for LED head lights.

These new lights are becoming far more futuristic, detailed and elaborate than the more traditional bulb and reflector type that they replace. Its this futuristic elaborate look that made me think of watch displays and how this could be incorporated.

“Sentinel” was the result.

Tri-Sector watch is a 3-sided alien timepiece.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: In recent months I have had a bit of a thing for triangular watches, sporting 12/5/9 time telling formats. For some reason (in my eyes) these two things seem to go togther very nicely. So here is another version called “Tri-Sector”.
