The result of my graduation work The Time Machine is an actual working prototype of an individual’s clock. This personalized timepiece does not give one the standardized time. Instead, it delivers and even progresses the user’s own sense of time. Through interaction with a set of sliders, the user can create his or her own elastic timeline, which in relation to real time, will rush or drag in order to reflect the personal feeling of time flow. Instant visual feedback is given including seconds counting slower or quicker to reflect the sense of time elasticity. Thus, the user sets the pace of his or her day (which is still a 24-hour standard) and can maximize and manipulate the passage of time to match busy moments, slower periods and perhaps even individual bio-rhythms.
The top eye is prepared for hosting a motion detecting IR-sensor, which together with a microphone could measure the actual tempo in the clocks surroundings, and set the speed of time corresponding to this.
Big thanks to Kristofer Hagbard for technical sollutions and help.
