This unique clock calendar would be look sweet on the GTX skin. However not being a coder, I have no idea where to start. Anyone care to give it a shot?

it would be simple to take that image and make it into a clock but I dont think theres any way of making the calendar actually work....
it would be purely aesthetic....

theres also the issue of the person who created it...
I wouldn't really be comfortable using it without permission....

I dont think you would be able to get the digital clock inside the circle either.....

As I am a fan of conventional watch gears, I was wondering how to replicate this effect on the Sense Clock. Thus I had the idea of concentric rings. As with all ideas, I googled to see what was out and lo and behold I found something similar.

Due to limited space on our devices the clock should only consist of 3 rings

Inner Ring - Hours 24 segments. (12 in white, 12 in black for AM/PM)

Middle Ring - Minutes 60 segments

Outer Ring - Seconds 60 segments

The time would be shown @ the 3'Oclock position so we could read the time conventionally.

For increased visual appeal, the 3 rings could be programmed to move in opposite directions. E.G Hours move CCW (counter clockwise), minutes move CW and seconds move CCW.

For the digital clock look here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=267.
The calendar isn't really different from the calendar rings in my clocks.
But for the permission I see it in the same way.

@slimbrown
You are right. The clock is too big for the HD2.

Permission granted. Basic Design would be something similar to this:



Inner Ring (BLUE) - Hours 24 segments. (12 in white, 12 in black for AM/PM).

Middle Ring (GREEN) - Minutes 60 segments

Outer Ring (RED)- Seconds 60 segments

Time Display Box (Black)- Displays Time. Most likely in Larger Font than on the wheel to make it easier to read.

Hey Slim,
First of all thanks for your pm and Im glad youve got permission to use the image......

Unfortunately I dont think I can help you with this project.....
Until I came upon this thread I had no idea it would be possible to make the clock function in the way that you describe......

Something like this is far beyond me Im afraid.......
Perhaps rat_2665 might be able to help or point you in the direction of somebody who can........

If you do get a working version I'll be happy to beta test though
I could always put together some alternative skins for it as well.......

I hope you do manage to get this off the ground and If I come across anybody that I think might be able to help you I'll send them this way......

Best of luck........
