WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY: TICWATCH 2
OMUUS was invited to a launch collaboration project with Chinese brand Mobvoi Ticwear for Scandinavian artist concepts. Ticwatch strategy was to create crossover product from fashion to technology, to inspire new ways of wearing a watch. OMUUS selected designers Pinja Rouger, Gabriel Boicel and Tone Rörseth who were inspired creating fabulous concepts for the brand.
Ticwatch 2 is an exciting product designed by industrial designer Mika Nenonen, using high quality materials and minimalistic style to accentuate the functions. Video of the design process. The watch is voice activated and can be used as independent device to make and receive phone calls due to the SMD SIM card. Other functions GPS, optical heart rate monitor and quite lovely ‘Tickle’ function for user interface just by tickling the side of the watch.
Ticwatch 2 is currently in crowdfunding phase Kickstarter for the European version.
