TIME UP / Articles of daily use


"TIME UP" is a product that helps FOMO patients feel the passage of Time intuitively.users are reminded with different color feedback. If you spend too much Time on social media, "TIME UP" keeps making the sound of balloons popping, warning users not to be bombarded with messages. When the user puts the mobile phone on the "TIME UP" base, it will no longer be noisy, but become a small lamp, quietly accompanying the user to do other things. While giving users more control over how much time they spend on social media, they can also spend more time focusing on themselves.
