Widgets – Now Available For Pre-Order

Widgets IconWidgets is a collection of digital gadgets, designed to inform, entertain and assist you. It is also the most ambitious Photics project ever undertaken.

If you want to change the world, first you must ask, “What’s wrong with it?!” Once you’ve detailed the problem, the next question is obvious. “What can you do about it?” In determining a new plan for this website, that’s the frame of mind.
