Problem: Convenience, most people like to think that phones are really convenient, when really they could be a whole lot more convenient then they actually are, and a holographic watch solves that problem. The holographic watch solves this problem because for one, it’s smaller than a phone and you don’t have to remember to bring your phone places all the time since its on your wrist. It’s also less likely to break, because a phone you should have a case on it and even if you do have a case on it, you may crack the screen or scratch the phone, so you have to pay money to get it fixed, but with the holographic watch, you can’t crack it or scratch it easily and since you’re wearing it throughout the entire day, you most likely won’t drop it at all. A holographic watch is also a smaller device than a phone, but it would be able to have an even bigger screen than a phone, so it would be helpful for people with eye problems. There are many upsides to having a holographic watch, and there are many more ways that the holographic watch over rules any normal phone.
The solution that others have found to our problem is a watch that you can get your texts on so you don’t have to check you phone, Ex. Apple watch. There is also something called Life Alert, so if you’re having a heart attack or if you’ve fallen down you can press the button and it sends help to you.
Apple has designed an iwatch that is basically a phone on your wrist but you will need to have your phone with you for it to receive texts or answer phone calls, so it’s not very convenient, the holographic watch is still more developed.
Fitbit has also designed a watch-type device that can track your steps, heart rate, etc. Which the holographic watch would be able to do via. app, the fit bit can only track health related things though, so the holographic watch is still a lot more developed.
A holographic watch solves the problem, which is convenience. Here are some pros of a holographic watch:
Our prototype of the holographic watch would most be a parallel circuit, because of all the different types of things you would need on the watch. For the screen to pop up, it would be a series circuit, if you look at the diagram to the right, the light represents the screen. It would be a lot more complicated to figure out for the entire watch itself for the circuit of the watch itself, and other parts of the watch.
Our holographic watch prototype would be able to do many things, and it would be superior to the phone in many ways. If you refer back to the ‘dream’ part of this project, you will see a list of things the holographic watch prototype would be able to do. These are really only the basic things it would be able to do, if we went even deeper with this project as a whole, I’m sure there would be many more complicated parts of the watch that would be very helpful. Even without picking apart the watch to find more pros, it is already extremely easy to tell that the holographic watch is by far, way better than the phone, and a whole lot more convenient.
Thanks for explaining your holographic watch idea. It would be great to see how this automation would work and affect the way we live our lives. This is a great post. You have a lot of detail and pictures. One thought is to add links to your sources. I am excited to see how far you get with your innovation.
