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!

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

It’s that time again. It’s time for the Mac. The dude who keeps coming hard with the strangest, wildest, most fantastically cool looking conceptual designs on such a regular basis that I can’t believe he doesn’t already work for a super secret design corporation run by time traveling aliens from outer space. Wait. I’m getting a message from Mac. He can see what I’m typing and is telling me to hush up! Oh jeez! Better just talk about this new design – “Dew”, it’s a conceptual mobile communication device that works in three dimensional projection space.

Not that Kind of Avatar Watch

Not that Kind of Avatar Watch

The timepiece in this post is called the “Avatar 1259B Watch.” It’s got nothing to do with the movie, but it’s no less epic. Really! You’ll have the entire world at your beckoning call when you grace their vision with this devastatingly amazing looking arm-clock. Made by the same people as what I like to call the Killer Robot Death Watch, this Avatar watch is just as metal, just as robotic, just as color bleeper intensive.

It’s Zip Up Time

It’s Zip Up Time

The Zipper Bracelet Watch is just that, of course there is no watch face; otherwise why would it be here on YD! This concept is a wide leather bracelet where the zips actually display the current time when you hit the central buttons on the wrist. Each zip displays a digit, which you are supposed to combine together to read the time. Sounds confusing right now, but hit the jump to see what I mean. Definitely easier than a Tokyo Flash!

Actually no death. None. Unless you mean the death of terrible wrist watches because this one completely DESTROYS them all! Is that what you mean? Well good! This is the “Robot 1259C Watch” and it’s going to make your arm so much more fantastic looking. Also you’ll be able to read time in such a hardcore manner that your brain might explode out of the top of your robotic head. Beware! It takes a moment to learn, a lifetime to master the awesomeness of ownership!

No Scratch Watch

No Scratch Watch

This cool concept watch by designer Allan George is basically aimed at the youth who like to wear trendy fashion, but maybe rough with it. Although latest scratch-proof glass materials are used in Omega, Rolex and ilk, but not all brands use this for their entire collection. And a watch with scratches on its glass looks so lame! Allan’s concept simple does away with the glass face and replaces it with a plastic-rubber finish. The colored hands peep out, behind a transparent rim, giving the watch a trendy and easy look!

Woodpecker Alarm

Woodpecker Alarm

A clock based on sleep with no mention to a specific time? I’m intrigued. The clock contains two alarms that signal each day at morning and evening. It indicates when to begin your sleep routine and receive a full 8 hours. The product reflects how sleep is a natural process and as such is made from natural materials. Over time the log will shed its bark as the user develops and controls their sleep rhythm. The alarm imitates a drumming woodpecker. You can even alter the type of drumming by switching out the “beak knocker”.
