What would happen if the ring and the clock got married? The Ring Clock seems like the most obvious result. Composed of a ring design with embedded numbers and ultrathin LEDs, this was designed to be an alternative to the traditional time monitoring wrist watch. Gusztav Szikszai originally created The Ring Clock years ago as part of a design competition to create a product that was impossible to make, but may be feasible in 10 years.

The final product of the design competition is a sturdy stainless steel clock ring that is made up of an inner ring and an outer ring. The outer ring consists of three distinct bands; the top band has the 24-hour clock markings, the middle band has minute markings, and the bottom band has dots showing the seconds.

“It started with a challenge 2 years ago at CGSociety.org named Moving Innovation. The idea was to create visualisation for a product that cannot exist today, but could exist 10 years from now. I wanted to create something that is innovative, good to look at and can actually be useful. I never wore a watch on my wrist because I don’t like the feeling, but I like watches in general, so I used that opportunity to let my mind come up with something that I could wear, the Ring Clock.” (RingClock.net)
