Here's an interesting new timepiece design I saw today. It's called the Aurora watch, by Yanko Design. It's a sleek metallic watch with a hollow middle and tells time by using tiny laser beams to simulate the hands. Right now it's just a concept. It doesn't actually exist yet. I'm not even sure we have the technology yet to make lasers that small.
It's a cool idea on paper, but in reality, not so much. First of all, there's no way those faint little beams of light would be visible anywhere but in a pitch black room. Plus, when you want to know the time, who wants to look at a metal ring full of arm hair?
Back to the drawing board, guys!
