Kazuma Morino is a CG artist active at home and abroad.
Morino programmed and designed Design Clock, an application for iPhone & iPod Touch and the application was upgraded in iTunes app store.
Design Clock is a new clock that makes the most of iPhone’s features and ticks with dots and lines that change and tangle each other with time, making new patterns.
Three types of patterns (stripe, dot, and ring) are in set.
In the new version of the application, an alarm function that is convenient for travel and so on and textual information of a day of the week, date, and time, etc., for easy understanding become available. Touching the screen and shaking gesture, a feature particular in iPhone, make the color of the clock and the speed of the background motion change.
The essence of Morino’s video works that are especially highly valued in foreign countries such as Stripe Box and Runners and a feature particular in iPhone are combined to upgrade this application more attractive.
Movie sample is available on Youtube.
