Two students at Cornell University have created this very unique watch to track your perception of time, allowing you to see when your perception of time either speeds up or slows down. Our perception of time changes daily just like the old adage says “time flies when you are having fun.”
The case of the TicTocTrac Watch has been created using a 3D printer and the internals consist of a two half-circle PCBs below the full-circle PCB face plate. The half-boards leave space for a tiny rechargeable battery, and host a vibrating motor and RTC chip. With a piezo sensor which detects when you tap on the top of the watch, for perception tracking.
The students behind the TicTocTrac Watch explain a little more about time perception. You can also watch the video below which explains the six different ‘time zones’ that people focus on.
“Not only do we physiologically perceive time differently from reality, we also psychologically focus on different parts of time. Some people live in the past while others are always counting on the future to be better.
