The Watch With No Face: The Aurora Watch Concept

The Aurora Watch Concept by designer Jihun Yeom is one of the weirdest watch designs we have ever seen here at TheBlogIsMine.

The Aurora Watch Concept by designer Jihun Yeom is one of the weirdest watch designs we have ever seen here at TheBlogIsMine dot Com. The watch features a faceless design that indicates the time using lasers. A red laser specifies the minutes, while a blue beam indicates the hour. They appear only when you tap the bevel edge around the watch ring; until then it’s just a hip jewelry around your wrist.

Aside from the images there aren’t any real details about how the concept would actually work. It seems more likely the ring would conceal two lasers that would rotate around the ring with the time, rather than having 120 static lasers crammed inside to accommodate all the necessary time variations.

It would also appear the Aurora Watch Concept would need to have some transparent material to ensure the lasers have something to interact with so they can actually be seen. And this transparent material would need to be at a slight angle to allow the laser hands to appear to fade as they approach the center of the watch face.

In any case, we love the design of  the Aurora Watch Concept. Great work, Mr. Jihun Yeom. [via YankoDesign]
