DURR is a watch that shivers, every five minutes. That's all it does. No hands to tell the time. It just shivers at set, five-minute intervals.

Its makers describe it as a kind of experiment to investigate how we perceive the passage of time: "We made Durr to explore how we perceive 5 minutes in different situations. By markedly shivering every 5 minutes, it creates a haptic rythm to make us notice the changing tempo of time."

They're currently sold out. So you'll have to wait to get yours.

Can't you do this with one of those fancy text phones everyone's got in their pocket these days?

I need this--only then will my life be complete.

At first I thought this would be a good gift for a blind friend. But its lack of telling the hour seems a drawback. Perhaps it could be modified to "shake" the hour at the quarters? Just a thought.

I have children, so I do not need anything else to annoy me thanks.
@KDP, they make watches for the blind that actually tell (verbally) the time already.

Just a gentle reminder that 5 more minutes of your life have gone.
