Pac-in-time Watch Concept: Wokka, Wokka, What Time is It?
November 7th, 2011
I just finished watching the Back to The Future trilogy again this weekend, so I have that Huey Lewis Back in Time song stuck in my head. Perhaps the name of this watch was inspired by that song, since it’s called “Pac-in-time.” Even if it’s not, it’s still a cool design.
Designed by Benedetto Papi, the Pac-in-time watch seems like the perfect timepiece for Pac-Man fans. It tells time using a Pac-Man in place of the hour and minute hands. From what I can tell, two yellow discs (or black pie wedges) would rotate to form Pac-Man’s mouth, opening and closing depending on the time of day.
It’s still just a concept for now, but I’m hoping that Namco sees the idea and decides to produce them. The only thing I’d add would be some power pills and cherries which pop up from time to time.
