Sensorstream is pleased to announce the successful allowance of its smart watch design featuring a circular display from the USPTO and its subsequent release for licensing. Commercially dubbed “Pi,” this buttonless smart watch case combines an ergonomic design with interior threading to support an upgradable modular electronics package. Physical samples are available via Sensorstream’s rapid-prototyping partner 3D Systems.
“We’re ecstatic, literally doing cartwheels over here! This a major coup for our company,” commented Sensorstream’s founder Tom Rapko. “Securing the design patent for a smart watch featuring a circular display from the USPTO gives us the opportunity to empower the world in a meaningful way. Our goal is nothing short of putting a computer on every wrist.”
How can a small piece of metal really empower the world? According to Sensorstream, smart watches will drive disruptive innovations in social networking, entertainment, and commerce. Furthermore, the company believes that these advances will also lead to solutions in both software and hardware, spur mobile payment development, and even alter the way electricity is distributed via wireless charging. At the heart of this technological push, Sensorstream argues, is the smart watch case itself.
In stark contrast to traditional watch cases, Sensorstream eliminated all external buttons to markedly increase protection from the elements. They threaded the case’s interior to help ensure future upgradability with modular electronics and also designed the contours of the smart watch case to hug the wrist for enhanced stability. Finally, Sensorstream validated the design by fabricating the case in a variety of alloys, including some of the most durable and valuable metals on earth.
Sensorstream maintains that the impetus for this robust design was born out of necessity; the challenge was to simultaneously address the complexity of a global market with widely disparate societies yet similar user goals. The company answered this challenge by developing an aspirational consumer product that would appeal across a wide demographic spectrum. The result is the fusion of durability and utility, a sleek, tough smart watch case ready to empower the world.
“I believe the smart watch adoption rate will rival all previous consumer electronics,” Tom commented. “The end game is combining the look and feel of a Swiss luxury watch with the core functionality of a smart phone.”
