~ It's about Time ~

time It’ high time to write about Time.

While working in Verizon’s R&D lab’s I had some time to think about time. Not just as it pertains to the users experience but also as a function of the system itself, like a clock interface. This helps you think about all sorts of things as potential interfaces to measures time.

One of the more interesting ideas I had from this prolonged thinking on time and interaction led to what I called TimeWinder. This was a proposed idea for an application that would let the user interact with his/her schedule on their smart phone in a quick and intuitive way.

Verizon liked the idea and patented it. But alas, the time was not right, priorities change and the idea was never implemented.


This was pitched at the dawn of the smart phone to help set the “mood” of the interface.
