TockTock / Stress control


'Time' has made it possible for us to have this civilised society, however, it seems the time even controls our lives, especially in work scene. TockTock is a “watch”, which re-defines the concept of ‘time’, emphasising the importance of living on our own rhythm.
TockTock, unlike usual watches, puts its hands forward according to the rhythm of user’s heartbeat, therefore sometimes fast and sometimes slow, instead of using a quartz oscillating circuit.
Scientifically, adults’ heart rate is around 60, which indicates affinity with the time. Introducing TockTock, emphasising we have different rythm, brings healthier lives for our society.
