Uniqlo ‘Wake Up’ Social App.
Japanese clothing brand, Uniqlo have launched an innovative new social alarm app that aims to make waking up every day an enjoyable experience. The alarm music, which is automatically created based on the weather, time, and day of the week, was co-written by 51st annual Grammy nominee Cornelius (Keigo Oyamada) and Yoko Kanno, who is active in songwriting across a wide range of genres including video games and anime (COWBOY BEBOP, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Macross).
The app allows users to share a record of their awakening – specifically, the time, weather, and temperature at the moment they stopped the alarm – via social media channels including Facebook and Twitter. In addition, the “wake up records” shared by users around the world are displayed in a part of the app via its World Wake Up function.
