Dot Watch Concept: Touch the Time

 |  |  |

While I initially thought that this watch was basically a touch-enabled timepiece, it’s actually something different. Samuel Jerichow completely minimizes the essence of a watch down to three dots. Thanks to advances in tactile displays, this watch could be feasible.

The Dot Watch is made out of a single, flexible strap covered in stretchable PVC. The main display uses three dots that press up against a flexible sheet to tell the time.┬áThe center dot is the middle of the watch. The dot closest to this one indicates the hours while the exterior one shows the minutes. As is the case with faceless analog watches, you’ll have to guesstimate the time, which is good in my book.

To be honest, using a sort of braille numeric dot display might be more useful.
