Tictocology introduces pic-toc graphical clock screensaver for mobile phones

Share Article

Collection of configurable, downloadable and interchangeable fashion watches. New twist on telling the time. Screensaver, phone jewellery - looks good and is functional.

pic-tocs from Tictocology are downloadable über-screensaver clocks for colour screen mobile phones and a highly original take on telling the time to boot.

They're fully functioning timepieces but have no hands, the current time being defined by the differential between two interleaved discs. The beauty of this seemingly elementary idea is that the discs can be composed of anything from simple flat colours to photographs, 3d graphics, fine art or even animations and video. Initially a user downloads the pic-toc player from our website (http://www.pic-toc.com) or WAP store (http://shop.pic-toc.com) and this can then hold up to ten clock faces.

Apart from being configurable at purchase the user can further customise their 'off the shelf' pic-tocs by mixing and matching clock faces and bezels (the bit round the outside) to create a huge range of combinations to suit any mood. Furthermore Tictocology have also kindly created Time Factory where anybody can upload their own images to create a totally original, personalised pic-toc.

pic-tocs are the brainchild of Sean Zoega, MD of Tictocology, who was to be originally found developing media solutions for the who’s who of the corporate world but eschewed this technically pastoral, yet lucrative, backwater for the high octane world of fashion watches for mobile phones.

Assembling a small but highly motivated, creatively adept and, above all, occasionally sober team of like minds pic-toc has finally come of age taking its first, perfectly formed, infant steps on the road to global acclaim.

Tictocology has but one aim - to buff, tone, wax, primp, inject, twist, delineate, subvert, caress, nurture and expand the simple yet potent pic-toc concept in the gymnasium of quality items.

Presently pic-tocs are formatted for Symbian Series 60 enabled devices but Linux, Palm and Microsoft Mobile versions will be available in the first half of 2005. The product is aimed at eighteen to twenty five year olds and is pitched to appeal to the fashion watch and mobile phone jewellery market examples of which can be seen below.

Tictocology will be demonstrating pic-tocs on Stand 3 at the Symbian Expo 2004 in London's ExCel Centre Oc.
