theo tveterås and lars marcus vedeler of norwegian design collective skrekkøgle have developed ‘DURR’, a shivering bracelet that creates a series of haptic rhythms every 5 minutes. the interactive experiment investigates how users perceive time through a display-less watch, offering a subjective understanding of how fast time passes. with ‘DURR’, a user can perceive time differently through a series of repetitive tempos; whether the length of a taxi ride, how long it takes to finish a beer, or time during leisure activities, the limited edition wearable device alters one’s ability to accurately estimate durations depending on a range of factors and the context of a specific situation. built using arduino, ATTiny85 and a PCB board, the bracelet aims to make us more aware of the actions we take and the amount of time we spend on certain tasks.
