New Ways of Tracking Time

Two new, interestingly designed ways to think about time. The first is Time Timer, which shows you the passage of discrete blocks of time using a “a patented red disk that disappears as time elapses.” This method makes it easier and less successful to focus on given tasks by making the remaining time look and feel more concrete. Time Timers come in clock-like form, as watches, and in app form—it’s a complete product line.

The second is Today, currently raising funds on Kickstarter. It’s a design for a wall-mounted timepiece that removes the hour and minute markers from the clock face and “simplifies the day into a perfect balance of dawn, noon, dusk, and midnight.” It has one hand that moves at half the speed of a regular clock, and makes a single, full rotation once per day. Its shading also helps you understand what part of the day it is.
