The following LED Binary sequential Watch is inspired by the condition synaesthesia: people who have this sensor condition see sound especially music notes as colour. Furthermore this is also how scientists in the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind communicate with a race of alien that speak a musical / tonal use different colour to represent different musical notes / words etc.
The time is displayed in binary sectors: Hours 1-12, Ten Minutes: 10-50 & single minutes: 1-9. Each Time Sector is assigned a musical note: Hours: A, Ten Minutes: B Flat & Single Minute: C Sharp. For each LED Light & Note that activates on e unit within a time sector has elapsed. Yellow: AM / Orange: PM do not have a assigned note & remain lit through the Time sequence light.
This watch will appeal to anyone with an interest in music as their Three Musical instrument style for this watch:
Black IP – Electronic Synthesizer (Casio/Korg)
Stainless Steel – Guitar Riffs (Lead/Bass)
White Acetate – Electric Organ
This watch is unlike anything other watch on the market today.
I do not want to insult anyone one with synaesthesia, I merely used the name of this condition to illustrate the concept behind the design.
