Best Of Machine And Digital

The Mechanized Digital Watch features a digital font but manipulates it to function as a “mechanized” number because the elements of each digit physically move to create numbers. Every digit is composed of 7 panels and to create a number, panels on the watch face recess revealing contrasting sidewalls. Thus creating the outline of a digit and a whole lot of fun!

      Beautiful interpretation but the mechanism may get just too complicated.
      I’ll buy one, watches are a fashion object that reflects the personality and “coolness” factor of its user.

      Nice work. What were you thinking you could use to do the pushing and pulling of the ‘blocks’, that fits into a watch?

    • Carl says:

      It could possibly be moved with a little electro magnet attached to the backside of each panel. When current is applied, it would pull on the panel causing it to recess into the watch face. I never really got to far into the actual mechanics of the idea beyond the basic concept. If the electro-magnet idea doesn’t work, it could always work by “magic”!

      Thanks for the great comments everyone!

      I think most people are over-complicating the mechanism required. Moving the entire piece from each section would be too difficult.

      Instead, keep the slots as they are, but simply add little shutters to the individual sections of each digit. This way only a small piece has to slide over the hole to cover it. With such a system the design is still preserved, while allowing for a simpler mechanism and lower power consumption.
