Recording Wristband Preserves Audio Memories
Kapture is a new type of wearable device that lets people preserve the audio moments in life that are difficult to keep.
In our sharing social media world, people tend to document and share many aspects of their lives, and following the rise in wearable tech such as Google Glass, that is only becoming easier and more prevalent. Up until now, audio was an intangible element of everyday life that seemed out of reach, but a new wearable device, Kapture, enables people to record all the sound them around them for playback later.
