|Kapture is a wristwatch that combines our love of timepieces and having our every word on tape. Oddly, the device can only actually hold 60 seconds of sound. It continuously erases itself, though it appears as though you can tell it to preserve a certain number of seconds, until you hit that 60.
"Here’s how it works: The device is always on but stores no more than the last 60 seconds of sound, in much the same way that many CCTV cameras overwrite their recordings after a set period. The point is not to have an exhaustive record of every sound ever encountered (which if you live in urban areas would consist largely of traffic and sirens) but to preserve something immediately after the fact.
What might such a device be used for, other than bar humor? Kapture’s founders suggest several occasions on which it might come in handy:
The reaction of a child experiencing something for the first time
The unexpected interactions of daily life
A humorous anecdote from your family reunion
The birth of an inside joke with friends
A solitary epiphany during your drive home"
It will go live on Kickstarter on next month.
