Tima – E-paper watch
I recently came across some wristwatch and personal accessory concepts by Julien Bergignat that were worth noting:
Tact is a wristwatch for the blind. Usually most watches for the blind allows the users to lift the glass of the watch and feel the hands. This can be something ineffective because the users can accidently move the hand with their finger while looking for the time. Julien attempts to solve this problem by using the two disc wristwatch with two tactile markings on it, however, since he added no hour markers, it isn’t really an improvement. Also, he would still need a glass to protect the movement from any dust or water that may seep through the discs.
Marcus is a different type of timing device. It’s a ring that discretely measures the amount of contact a person has with UV rays in order to avoid skin and eye diseases as it only allows you to be aware of how much time you spend under the sun but you can share the data with your doctor.
