Stop motion animation is fun to watch, especially if done right. If you have a minute or two to spare, perhaps this iOS stop motion animation is worth checking out. Put together by London-based university students, Carrie Bale, Doug Hindson, and Jooyoung Ryo, the animation has been dubbed “Skew”, an abbreviation of the term, “Skeuomorph”. Given that Apple, especially Jony Ive, made such a big deal about getting rid of skeuomorphism in iOS 7 in favor of a flatter and more minimalist theme, this particular video is rather ironic, although we suppose it would be harder to pull off if it were based on iOS 7.

Basically this video is a top down video of a giant iPhone model where it shows the iPhone being used for everyday tasks, such as turning off the alarm, launching apps, using maps, and so forth. It’s a pretty cool idea, not to mention pretty cute as well. If you’re interested, the video below shows the making-of the main video, so that’s worth checking out as well.
