The Sun Watch was a part of Eli Backer's portfolio in applying to Masters of Fine Art programs around the country. It is a typical-looking wristwatch that does not give the time, but the position of the sun in the sky via a row of LEDs along the edge of the device. It is programmable with a custom programming board that uses pogo-pins to make reliable contact. In using the device, it is the designer's hope that the user will become less addicted to time.
