The hardest thing for many under quarantine is the lack of human contact. The Human Minute kind of fixes that.
The premise is basic: you log in and stare at an another anonymous person online while they stare back at you. You basically make eye contact without saying a word and just relax into the experience. It’s really, really nice.
From the site:
We are developing multiple experiences at Human Online. Currently you can experience the Human Minute. You both commit to share one minute together, looking at each other over a silent video connection. You can be you. The other can be themself. We have built this space to encourage an authentic way of being with each other:
I tried it an it was great. I was paired with another greying 40-something dude and we looked at each other for 60 seconds. Nothing more. It was nice seeing a friendly face on the other end of the screen without the baggage of conference calls and the hyper sexualization of tools like Omegle. In short, it was a nice moment with another human.
Stay safe and sane, friends. Now all we need is virtual hugs and we’ll be golden.
