KWID watch uses an hourglass to tell time

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 1st, 2010

The concept of “time” is a hard one for kids to grasp since their minds have yet to develop fully, so we better start training them with the KWID. The KWID is a watch that comes with a digital hourglass for a more visual and easily understandable representation on just how long a time period is.

So when you tell them that they have five minutes to clean up their toys, they can see just how quickly the minutes will vanish. Then once your child grows and understands time, the KWID watch comes with a traditional clock face which shows off the time displayed.

Hourglass Lantern replaces sand with LED light

Hourglass Lantern replaces sand with LED lightThis is a fairly interesting lantern concept from designer Young Bok Kim. It puts a modern spin on the hourglass by draining the light from LEDs instead of using sand. While conspiracy theorists will no doubt say that the ancient Egyptians already had such technology, no they did not, get a grip and throw out your series of Paranormal Time-Life books.

If you adjust the dial in the center, you can control how fast the light “drains” from top to bottom. I’m not sure it would be all that practical as it looks like it would be hard to tell tell how full the bottom is getting.
