2014-09-16 (Tu) Smart Pocket Watch

Materials were assembled and purchased to make the buttons accessible from the outside of the watch. Small brass brads were purchased since they are already button shaped with a post that can be spread out to hold it in place. Another option is to insert long pins into the tops of the watch cases since a hole runs the whole distance unimpeded. This will make it necessary to have two visible posts which makes the unit look like an antique stop watch. Another option is to fasten a ring, the same diameter as the watches, around the smart watch so the ring can be pushed and it will contact the buttons.

Jennifer Domeier was consulted for all these discussions and helped reach these conclusions.

To do:
  • Find more suitable rings
  • Trim tops of watches
  • Find suitable background
  • Insulate top watch or buy copper foil tape
  • Fill around watch
  • Build buttons
  • Install buttons
