Kapture will hold people accountable or replay a minute of your life


Much like Google can settle a bar argument with the tap of a finger, a device launching on Kickstarter might stop fights over miscommunications — well, if the fight is over something said within the last-minute. The Kapture bracelet launches next week on Kickstarter, and constantly records audio. With a tap of the finger on the device you can retrieve the last 60 seconds of sounds around you.

That might be your child’s first word or a convenient playback of your friend saying they’d get the fifth round of drinks. It’s a nifty idea even if I think it will take some user training to get used to tapping the device pretty much immediately after you hear something interesting. The Kickstarter price for the bracelet will be $99 for black or white, with a $26 premium for color. There’s apparently going to be a gold-plated version for $300 for your inner oligarch.

Kapture hopes to raise $150,000 in Kickstarter funding, and plans to launch the final product to the public in March 2014. Kapture is a product developed at Cintrifuse, a Cincinnati, Ohio co-working space. The Kapture team has already closed on $300,000 in seed funding, in a round led by CincyTech. Maybe I’ll have to push my fitness band out of the way to make room for something new.
