Durr is a shivering unisex bracelet that investigates our perception of time by exploring how we perceive 5 minutes in different situations. By markedly shivering every 5 minutes, it creates a haptic rhythm to make us notice the changing tempo of time and become more aware of both actions we take and the time we spend on things.

I like the idea of haptic rhythms as opposed to notifications or alerts to help cultivate mindfulness. While I love the physical product (it reminds me of AIAIAI), this is another example of a wearable destined to become software only once the major wearable platforms sort themselves out (Apple, Google, Samsung etc). Unless the “cooked salmon” color really takes off.
