With technologies such as fingerprint and facial recognition, unlocking the smartphone is becoming faster and less of a conscious gesture. For instance, you only wanted to quickly check the time but find yourself scrolling through social media, even though it wasn’t your initial intention. TicTocLock aims to reinstate a gesture for the unlocking that helps the users take back control over their smartphone activity by physically visualizing their usage time.
