Storytelling App Creates Layered Narratives From Passive Data
Kennedy is an iPhone app that lets users capture a specific instance, complete with surrounding context.
Created by Brendan Dawes, Kennedy is an iPhone app that lets users mark moments in time complete with surrounding context.
Dubbed by the creator as a “moment freezing machine,” Kennedy captures data snapshots instead of just image-based moments. A single tap captures the date and time, location, current weather condition, the news headlines, and even the music the user was listening to.
“I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of how the things we experience in our lives run parallel with other events happening at the same time around the world,” explains Dawes. “When 9-11 happened, I often thought about what was happening on the QVC shopping channel as the majority of the world was watching those terrible events live. Were they still selling ‘today’s special value?'”
