Durr

11th February 2014

With 2014 being heralded as the year of the wearable I am sure we will see a huge amount of new products, but this one caught my eye for its simplicity and its more emotional connection to ourselves.

It also sits nicely as a comment on the rash of wearable watches that we are seeing hit the market from the likes of Samsung and Pebble.

The 'Durr' as it is called is a wearable bracelet that vibrates every five minutes and aims to bring a more emotional connection to the passing of time or as the designers say: “it creates a haptic rhythm to make us notice the changing tempo of time”, which also links in nicely to the re thinking of time that is being explored by many designers and projects at the moment.
