“You had to have been there.” How many times have we experienced this in our lives?
Walking into a room filled with friends in tears, laughing hysterically. A baby’s first words. Some random thought of genius while stuck in traffic.
Even though mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, have the capability to record audio, it’s never a one-step process. By the time you even reach for it, the moment is generally over.
The team behind Kapture have realized this, and are set to produce the unique audio-recording wristband.
Kapture is an always-on wristband that records the last 60 seconds of sound. It continually overwrites itself, so you only get the last 60 seconds at any given time. The beauty of this wristband is that, with just a touch, it transmits those 60 seconds into a single audio file to a paired Bluetooth device.
It only takes a few seconds for the file to transmit. Once that is done, Kapture will give a quick vibrate to let you know it succeeded. If not, you have time to tap it again and still save that moment.
Kapture has enough built-in storage to save up to 25 audio files when there is no Bluetooth device nearby. Once a device is in range, Kapture will immediately upload everything and free up that space.
The app that goes along with the Kapture wristband acts as the UI. Once a file has been saved and sent to a smartphone or tablet, it immediately pops up in the app for playback or editing. There will be an Android and iOS version for all users.
The wristband itself is simple, featuring a speaker attached to an adjustable band with a little bit of technology in the middle. There are multiple colors to choose from so you can accentuate your personal style.
