ePaper Watch

An e-paper design that shows the time in two

different ways in one watch; digitally and with lines.


The wrist band is made of a thin sheet of stainless steel that wraps around your wrist like a bracelet, the e-paper is positioned beneath this band to form the time and information display.


The watch vibrates to give message, mail and call notifications from your cell phone and these will appear on the screen via Bluetooth wireless technology. With this design, the buttons are positioned at the top of the band.

Profile | Jon Atherton

About Me – Jonathan Atherton.

I thought I better put a Bio up about myself – riveting reading! :-)

Jon Atherton was born in Brisbane , brought up mainly in Melbourne schooled at Wesley College and RMIT (briefly) in BioTech. Jon Atherton joined the Army reserve and then moved into the commando signals unit 126 Signal Squadron Special Forces.

After the Commando unit and some full time duty Jon Atherton decided to join the Regular Army and went to Royal Military College Duntroon in 1986, to be trained as an Officer, graduating as a lieutenant in 1987, he worked in Toowoomba (7Sig) and Brisbane (1 Sig + 4 Sig). Jon met his wife Janine in Brisbane and decided to leave the army and stay in Brisbane.

Jon Atherton Left the Army in 1991 and started his own business importing and distributing triathlon gear such as carbon wheels, bike frames and heart rate monitors. In 1995 he did some work for Microsoft via the MSN portal program and then moved into web software development. He sold what had become the bike business and concentrated on software development full-time.

In the late ’90’s he partnered with an old Army friend who managed the business development and management, whilst Jon focussed on the software engineering side of the business.  The new partnership grew into what would become a very large advertising and banking network working for businesses worldwide in the late ’90’s and early 2000’s. The pair dissolved their partnership in about 2004.

Jon Atherton then focussed on building a large property rental portfolio which he had started investing in in 1996. He was also involved in car racing – competing in Targa Tasmania, Rally Tasmania and Classic Adelaide – racing cars included Nissan GTR V-Spec N1, and Ferrari Challenge Stradale.

Jon’s has coached all 3 of his kids in sport including Soccer, AFL, Cricket and is currently an AFL coach at Wests Juniors. He has dabbled in software design and marketing of the Wobble iPhone Application, the marketing blog for Wobble and all the other Apps can be found here.

Jon Atherton’s interests include organic gardening, including vegetables and citrus trees plus of course the backyard chicken raising. Jon Atherton is also a very keen skier and plans to retire to a mountain, just as long as there are Barramundi present.

Jon Atherton now seems to spend most of his life inside an iOS device.

Value of Olympic Medals!

The world champion athletes at the Winter Olympics receive gold, silver, and bronze medals that contain roughly the same amounts of metal as the last Summer Olympics.

A gold medal contains 550 grams of silver and is layered with just 6 grams of gold.
A silver medal has 509 grams of silver and about 41 grams of copper.
The bronze medals likely contain about 450 grams of copper and 50 grams of mostly tin and zinc.

At current market prices, a gold medal is exchangeable for about $494, a silver for about $260, and a bronze for just $3. If the gold medal was solid gold with the same mass, it would be exchangeable for almost $20,000.

Levi van Veluw – Official website | Landscapes !WOW!

Levi van Veluw´s photo series are self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers; modifying the face as object; combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object of great visual impact.

You gotta check out this guys work – it’s pretty amazing! How he does it below…

For example, this one is Tornado made of steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss”

Tornado made of steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss

My work involves the construction of small-scale meticulously detailed models using various materials and objects to create emotive landscapes. Every aspect from the construction to the lighting of the final model is painstakingly pre-planned using methods which force the viewers perspective when photographed from a specific angle. Using a mixture of photographic techniques such as scale, depth of field, white balance and lighting I am able to drastically alter the appearance of my materials. For images documenting how these works are made see my facebook fan page Matthew Albanese.
