Ubicomp 2015: “Give me five minutes!” Feeling Time Slip By

Another paper from Ubicomp 2015 in Osaka, Japan later this year.

Abstract: “Time perception is the result of the physical progression of events and the way we experience them. For centuries the way we experience time has heavily relied on visual and auditory senses; little has been done with the experience of time and haptics. As technology is increasingly embedded in our everyday life, and wearables are becoming increasingly popular, we explore the concept of ‘feeling’ time. In this paper we present initial work into users’ interactions with, and appropriation of, a simple wearable device that vibrates every five minutes. We discuss how lightweight interactions with such a device can increase our awareness of time in a peripheral way through the sense of touch, by presenting initial findings from two in-the-wild autoethnographies.”
