Chronophone is a new telephone service that allows people to call themselves - one year from now.

When you call the Chronophone it automatically picks up and records whatever you say or do. Exactly one year later the Chronophone calls you back and replays the recording.

The Chronophone subverts our expectations of instant communications. A Chronophone user has to consider the “long now” and imagine a future self in a future context. What would you tell your future self?

Chronophone is supported by Nordic Culture Point. It‘s an Unsworn Telecom project.
