Just what is UNIQLOCK?
It’s a fusion of dance video routines, time signal music and clock utility.
The video sequence and the clock display intervenes one another every 5 seconds,
while the time signal music seamlessly connects the two.
The infinite video sequence appears randomly and endlessly.
Viewers are eager to see what happens next.
The clock intervals also give the full-screen videos time to re-load.
It’s an artistic expression that serves utility as well as technical necessity.
It’s a 24/7 presentation of UNIQLO clothing.
In summer, dancers dress in DRY POLO SHIRTS.
In fall, they chage into CASHMERE SWEATERS.
At midnight, UNIQLOCK goes to sleep mode.
Every hour, there is a special sequence.
It even has an alarm funtion.
They can use the mini-version of UNIQLOCK on their own blog.
