“Chronobelt” [2014]

KIHARA Tomo + KAKEHI Yasuaki



How will our senses evolve if our biological clock were correct by the second? In this research we pursuit the answer to this question by using Chronobelt, which is a device that allows the users to wear the correct time. 12 vibration actuators embedded in the Chronobelt vibrate according to the hands of a clock. By wearing this belt daily, users can understand subjective time objectively and perceive daily occurrences by measuring time and speed. Moreover, wearing this belt for a long period of time may provide a new measurement for the user’s subjective time. Chronobelt is the future model of a watch and is an attempt to redefine the relations between people and the environment through time.
