Optic Flow

Optic Flow is an Augmented Reality interface that visually maps our conscious experience to the world. 

Using a timeline that has an adaptive scale of space and time the interface allows users to visualise a timeline of consciousness. On the horizon you can see next Monday, your next song, your next heartbeat, the route to your next destination.

This timeline of experience can be manipulated and adjusted using a ring based controller.
