In a rapid evolution of communication technologies, we are now capable of bieing contacted anywhere, any time, and any way. Mobile phones, our new appendages, should mark a new step in communication efficiency and ease. Granted we are able to check movie listings, email and stock quotes from our phones, the mobile is currently being used in ways that replicate the Internet and telephone.

Clip.fm utilizes the mobile phone to revolutionize communication.

Using clip art composed of simple universal symbols, clip.fm extends the everyday playful use of these images into a means for expressing difficult topics. Standard icons are linked together into sequences illustrating situations that are hard to tell someone, adulterous confessions and/or conversations you do not want to be overheard saying aloud.

In addition to readymade animations, users can create their own stories through a series of multiple chioce menus. These menus allow the user to link actions and objects to construct customized icon sequences that suit their specific needs.
