Faded Time / Product,New concept for timing

Faded Time
Faded Time

Nowadays, people are anxious about the fast-paced life,while busy staring at screens, wasting too much time on irrelevant information. We presented the concept of " focus within one hour ", and designed the “Faded Time” timing tool to help people get off social media for a while and return to their own exclusive time.
“Faded Time” does not record time by numbers or the rotation of pointers, but reflects the lapse of time by the fading color of the chemical liquid in the container. It feels as peaceful as water with no hasty, which makes people realize the preciousness of time,and try to take an hour to focus on more meaningful activities.
