Do you go through your day thinking, “Wait! What just happened”? Want to preserve baby’s unexpected first word? Something amazing your friend just said? Something you overheard a stranger saying?
Take a look at Kapture, a wristband that continuously records your audible world in 60-second loops. A tap on the band and the last loop is saved. Send it to your smartphone and, voila! you have preserved a minute of your personal history—or less, if you edit it. No screens, no buttons. It’s audio grab and go.
The Kapture wristband comes in six colors, including white and black, which you can switch at will. It’s available on the company’s website for $129, which seems expensive given the low cost of solid-state mics and Bluetooth radios.
Certainly, it would be terrific to send baby’s first word to the grandparents, but think about this a moment. There’s a device on your arm recording what you say and everything around you. What could possibly go wrong?
Are you going to go through your day, finger poised to tap, waiting for something notable to happen? How much will you miss by focusing on only the audio in your life? On the other hand, think how great this would be in an argument. It could mean the end of spousal discord as we know it. Or not. The spouses might hit different 60-second loops and we’re back where we started.
