Watch as 2 beautiful particles collide on Collider Watch. It’s a beautiful concept watch designed by Samuel Jerichow to give you a visual illusion how 2 different types of particles move fast and collide at the center of the display and create beautiful explosion.
The explosion pattern is based on analog watch display, the red ones inform you about hours while the blue ones inform you about minutes. However, there’s a little twist, on analog watch, hour hand is shorter and closer to the center, however some explosions also cast red LED which is further away. It’s not just explosion effect, this red LED indicates PM. All blue LEDs located a bit further away from the center inform you about minutes in 5-minute increments, while those additional blue LEDs located closer to the center represent single minute that you need to add to the first minute value. You can view images and animations below to get clearer visualization.
At first sight, it looks just like random explosions, we really love the animation by the way. There are 2 buttons which should be pressed in order to cast out those time particles, the designer says that it reminds him about 2 essential keys concept that have to be pressed in the event of emergency. We’re not sure if this is something that Tokyoflash would manufacture, but we keep our fingers crossed.
This product represents a combination of modern as well as traditional features of a telephone. Icono has been designed to offer a unique experience to its users. The design is based on the hand gesture that people use to represent the telephone. There are two parts of this handset, one is earphone and another one is microphone. Therefore, the user has to use the iconic gesture while using the telephone. The modern part of this device includes the touch screen that shows the animated path to the user for dialing the numbers. Overall, this two-piece design is sleek, impressive and creates a touching interaction between the phone and user.

The Icono has created a new experience for the telephone, which is a very traditional product. I have based my design on the iconic hand gesture people use to represent the telephone. The handset is divided into two parts, earphone and microphone. This invites the user to use the iconic gesture when using the phone. When the user dials the numbers, an animated path is shown on the touch screen. Therefore, people start to remember the person by their unique pattern rather than the numbers. This, together with the two-piece handset creates a more emotional interaction between the phone and the user.
