Please visit nastrup.dk/2012/04/23/touch-skin-watch/ for details

Touch Skin is the ultimate digital accessory – A touch sensitive watch that combines tradition and transcendence via classic minimalist analogue watch design.

Samsung Touch Skin fits in neatly with existing gadgets and is thought of as an accessory that can follow you in all situations of your daily life. From the morning when you wake, customize the look of the watch to match your dress code with the build- in watch designs. If you are not satisfied you can always connect the watch to your computers Bluetooth and download new skins or design your own from an App.

The three touch steps:

For battery saving efficiency the watch is normally in stealth mode. By pressing the screen gently with one finger, the watch switches between idle mode and normal/ night mode for three seconds.
By pressing the screen gently with two fingers, the watch switches to Date mode for three seconds.
And finally by pressing the screen with three fingers it is possible for the user to switch between the different skins installed in the watch.

Details
The shadow on the watch is rendered to follow the given time of day adding an almost seamless animation to the watch, much like time itself.

The watch is radio controlled so no need for adjusting the time and at the same time the gift box acts as wireless charger. Samsung Skin is placed on top of the box and the magnetic lock in the wristband automatically snaps to the box and the watch starts charging. The charger also works with other wireless charged objects.

Future development
Downloadable pulse watch skin and the possibility to develop add- on accessories for the watch, consisting of a heart rate monitor to communicate with the watch. The watch could also be developed in a cubic and most notably in a female edition.
