Sundial for the 22nd Century

Sundial for the 22nd Century

Orbit2Bg Designer Gina Reimann looks to the past for inspiration with her nomination for concept watch of the future. Billed as a sundial for the 22nd century, the Orbit use natural sunlight to tell the time with the help of a simple compass interface. At night, pushing a button illuminates a bright LED that simulates the sun’s shadow. And if that isn’t enough, there’s also a digital display of ‘world’ time – a hypothetical international time without time zones. No word on whether this will will ever see the ‘light’ of day. Link.
