Opus 8 Mechanical-Digital Display Watch by Harry Winston

Limited edition of Opus 8 is using a futuristic technology yet with a cool looking retro style. The complicated system of mechanical pixels will rise up from the display to show you the time when you activate a mechanism on the side of the case. Look at the back of this watch, you’ll find a design resembling a printed circuit that functions as a second time display. AM and PM status are featured on the left, hours an minutes in the center, and a power reserve indicator is located on the right.

Press Release :
An exceptional and advanced timepiece, Opus 8 utilizes hand-wound mechanical movements to create a modern, digital time display. Inspired by pin art games, which create 3D impressions of objects pressed against them, the numbers in the display will only appear “upon request,” activated by a bolt on the right hand side of the case. Nothing appears until the mechanism is wound.

A plate joins together small segments, both mobile and fixed. Just underneath is a disc driven by the movement, which turns independently in real time. When the mechanism is wound, the pieces adjust to display the time. As the plate descends, the small segments remain visible, “blocked” by the crystal, allowing the hour to be read for 5 seconds. Technically, all functions are related, enabling everything to be displayed on demand – the minute hand turns the hour that then turns the AM/PM function.

Smart Dish System by Jeongmi Lee

I hate washing dirty dishes, but who doesn’t? But I still do it anyway because I have to. But, what if your spouse or partner always leave dirty dishes in the sink and depend on you to clean them? I bet using this Smart Dish System concept will make them re-think about their decisions leaving dishes in the sink and wait for you to clean.

Dishwashing Battle - Smart Dish System Concept


The Smart Dish System detects who wash the dishes more often by installing RFID chips and Bluetooth technology within the dishes. It keeps records of the individual who washes them in a database. The data will then be used to move the electromagnetic power technology under the table to keep the dishes close to the person who cleans them more often. You can watch the movie clip below to get a clear idea of the Smart Dish System project, it’s pretty funny.
