In this paper we discuss the development of TimeTravel, a mobile application for tracking personal time dilation. Time dilation is the relativistic warping effect on time that velocity and gravity produces.
Predicted by Einstein's Special theory of relativity (1905) and verified by practical experiment, (Hafele and Keating 1972) time dilation affects all things in motion, anywhere in the Universe (Reinhardt 2007). Our project was to develop a simple application aimed at smart watches that could communicate the imperceptible effects of time dilation on a user's everyday activities in an easy to understand, meaningful way. We describe the development and consider what happens when we attempt to visualise the imperceptible
