EOBOT Watch: Tokyoflash Does the Robot

by Conner Flynn

This watch design makes my inner nerd happy. The EOBOT watch was designed by classic sci-fi fan, Lloyd from Australia and sports a retro-looking robot with LEDs. It was inspired by retro sci-fi and recently turned up over at the TokyoFlash design blog.

It looks like a cross between a Cylon and some sci-fi robot from the 1950s. As usual, you’ll take some time figuring out how to tell the time on this thing, but it is just too cool not to wear. Its red LED cyclops eye even blinks to resemble the swinging motion of a pendulum, counting each second. The grid of lights that make up the robot’s body tell you the time or the current date. Rather than try and explain how to tell time on the EOBOT, I’ll leave it to Lloyd:

“Telling the time on this watch is pretty easy. The first 4 vertical rows of lights indicate the 4-digit time and date and in each row one of the lights is illuminated in either green or blue. A blue light indicates an even digit and a green light indicates an odd digit. The top light in each row represents either 0 (considered as being an even digit) or 1, the second one down 2 or 3, the third one down 4 or 5, the fourth one down 6 or 7 and the fifth one down 8 or 9. Therefore, the combination of a light’s colour and position in each row enables you to figure out which digit is being indicated.”


Makes perfect sense, except maybe for that “easy” part. Right now the EOBOT watch is a concept, but if you like it, hit up Tokyoflash to vote for it.
