Tima is a watch that meets the needs of people who do not want to choose between a digital display and a classic view of the time (with needles). Both displays can be adjusted simultaneously on the same hour, or indicate two different time zones. This display can also alternate the two types of visualization. Thanks to the technology of ePaper, characters can be displayed on the curved surface of the watch.
Early in 2011, Jonathan Cohlmeyer Interactive Designer from Sheridan College, was working on a sport watch that needed to have a large screen to display his interface. He contacted us to see if he could use my Tima project by changing the interface to meet the needs of his project. We found particularly interesting the fact that our design was going to be "re-interpretated" based on new kind of uses.
