CARE CLOCK

A tool that allows you and your peers/friends/partners to be more conscious of how much “talk-time” you take in a given space.

In ideal setting, each member within the space/conversation gets their own CARE CLOCK. Each person positions the tool in front of themselves, with the angled face, pointing towards their face. As the conversation goes on, each CARE CLOCK is silently tracking the amount of time their corresponding person has been talking. The 4 light states - white, blue, purple, red - sequentially light up the more the person is talking, with the final red light state gently indicating to the speaker that they have exceeded the fair/polite/negotiated speaking time. Each CARE CLOCK rolls back to the initial white light state, as soon as the speaker stops talking.

The straight face of the CARE CLOCK is directed at the other member/s of the conversation. Its light mirrors the light on the angled face, and allows the “audience” to also keep track of the speaker’s talking time. (This function can be turned off.)
