Lifeline / watch


New relation to time:
A watch made out of an e ink bracelet including a motion sensor displays time in a personal way. A time line runs in 24 hours around the wrist influenced in its form by the movement of the user. No movement means a straight line, allday movement from the user generates an individual unique line. This way the user experiences its own time recording to its daylife. "Lifeline" shows time as reflexion of the biological cycle, stress and memories. It becomes a companion, a lifeline.
