Tokyoflash Kisai Online Watch: The Matrix is on Your Wrist
July 12th, 2012
Here’s another example of a user-submitted design that’s been made into an actual watch by Tokyoflash. It takes a bit of time before you realize what you are looking for when you glance at the face of this watch, but once you have, telling the time is easy.
The design was originally submitted by Samuel Jerichow, and can now be yours. The Tokyoflash Kisai Online has a display that’s made of continuous vertical lines, which kind of remind me of the source code display in The Matrix. The unbroken lines of the encrypted display can be broken with a flick of the wrist thanks to the built-in accelerometer, revealing the time through a display of squiggly vertical lines.
Just turn your head sideways and you’ll see how easy it is to read.
The Kisai Online is available with a silver or black band in blue, red, or natural LCD display. This will be a limited edition that will retail for $169 (USD), but you can get for the next couple of days for just $149 directly at Tokyoflash.
