    The number of aftermarket cases and mods could be huge!

    I want a snap on case that turns my Apple watch into a Dick Tracy watch exactly like this:D

    The 38mm apple watch screen is perfect for this, and Just a removable case, not like I would wear it all the time;)

    One of my favorite comics as a kid.

    Love the large tuning and control knobs. They're like digital crowns.

    PS. Didn't Tracy's watch have a long antenna that was taped up his arm ?

    PPS. Looked it up: Tracy got his Two-Way Radio watch in 1946, and then the TV version in 1964.

    Similar to the way the Star Trek communicator inspired flip-phones decades later, the Tracy watch inspired concepts such as this 1953 Sylvania radio transmitter watch:

    If nobody makes one, I'm going to design one and have it printed on a 3d printer, but it would be amazing if one of large tuning knobs could work the digital crown, the other could push the button below it.

    Hopefully the next Apple Watch will have facetime:D
