Shifted 3D Printed Watch: It’s Time to Print the Time

 |  |  |  February 4, 2013


I look forward to the day where I can 3D print pretty much anything I need, from cell phone cases to watches to spare body parts. Many small items can already be 3D printed on the cheap, thanks to the advent of the personal 3D printer. This watch was 3D printed, which makes me imagine all of the stuff that people will be able to make reality on their own desktops.

The Shifted Watch was created by Austrian designer Paul Kweton. Its translucent┬ácase highlights the latest in rapid prototyping technologies. The watch is wrapped in laser sintered nylon plastic, and it’s supposed to express a random, futile, deconstructive design aesthetic. I’m not sure about all of that, but it sure looks interesting.

While the watch mechanism itself clearly wasn’t 3D printed, I’m sure that some day you’ll be able to render complex mechanisms using the technology.

I wonder when I’ll be able to 3D print digital watches in my home office.
