Can you decypher the time on this watch?

By on

Believe it or not, this is actually a watch. No joke. Called the Zonal – and yes, I don’t even know what that means exactly – it is essentially a watch that depicts time in red segments of a squircle, or a rounded square. The top right one tells the hours, while the bottom left tells the time in increments of five. The bottom right tells the one minute increments […]

Watch shows time on your wrist … with lasers

By on

Over here, we love concepts, mainly for their novelty value because they won’t likely be manufactured for the mass market, but they push the boundaries of what we deem normal; and we have posted on the blog an iPod wristwatch and a faceless watch, but a bracelet?
