Durr: Faceless Watch That Vibrates Every Five Minutes


Sat, Jan 4th, 2014 21:00 by capnasty NEWS

Lovingly made in Oslo, the Durr is a "shivering unisex bracelet" that, with each vibration, allows the wearer to "explore how we perceive 5 minutes in different situations." Here is how they are made.

Time perception is our subjective understanding of how fast time passes. Our ability to accurately estimate durations depend on a range of factors. With Durr you become aware of how your brain alters the length of a bus ride, how fast you finish a beer, how time flies by when you enjoy yourself, and drags along when you wait in line at the post office.
