We spend most of our lives waiting for something, or at least that’s how it feels most of the time. You wait in line at the bank, supermarket, in traffic, at the fast food drive-thru, cleaners, bus stop, restroom…whew! is there anything we don’t have to wait in line for? They say all good things come to those who wait, but waiting around for everything is ridiculous when you think about it. Kris Harzinski sells this provocative waiting light belt to help you announce your frustration. Turn it on when you’re in waiting mode, and see how fast your neighbors strike up a conversation. Who knows, maybe actually talking to those around you will make waiting a bit more bearable.
"I am obsessed and annoyed, yet also quite meditatively involved with waiting. I suppose it can be quite peaceful if I listen to the repetitive tapping of the person standing in front of me. At any rate, I’ve been waiting here all day, and you’re still not here.
The Waiting Light is a project I began in 2002. The light is a simple device that you wear around your waist. When you turn on the switch it shines a bright orange color behind the bold, black letters that proclaim, “WAITING.” Perhaps it will make waiting less mundane. At the very least, it will give you something to talk about with the person standing or sitting next to you. It may even help whatever it is you’re waiting for find you." Product Site
