A futuristic watch design with continuous vertical lines, Kisai Online from Tokyoflash Japan uses a built in accelerometer to reveal the digital time.
Kisai Online includes time, date and alarm functions. Made of stainless steel, this design is available in black or silver in a choice of three cool LCD colors; natural, blue or red.
Kisai Online is a digital watch so is as easy to read as any other wrist watch. The "always on" LCD display is made up of vertical lines which look like a cryptic pattern to outsiders.
Turn the watch towards you and the lines fall away to reveal the time in hours and minutes. One push of the lower button changes the display to date mode.
In February 2010, Tokyoflash Japan opened its Design Studio Blog to showcase concept designs and request ideas for new watch designs from fans. The idea for Kisai Online was submitted by Sam Jerichow from Germany and was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans. This is the seventh concept submitted by a fan to become reality.
