It’s part of what makes us human and striving to remember has shaped a tremendous amount about how we live.. Think of all the things in our lives that we’ve created or that we do because of our imperfect memory. The origin of written language was to help us remember financial transactions. We carry little notebooks to remember our ideas. The invention of photography was inspired by wanting to remember visual scenes. Statues, pyramids, and buildings have been built to remember rulers and past legacies. Maps help us remember how to navigate places we’ve been to before. Innumerable religious and secular holidays serve to commemorate, to remember events in history. Interestingly, there’s also research to suggest that there’s a purpose to forgetting, though. Memory retention is a biological problem. Estimates suggest that 20% of our workday is spent searching for information, not to mention time spent capturing it. “We search for information but we recall our memories.“ - Suman Kanuganti. The ultimate goal is a representation of you and your memories that you can interact with like a human being.. Record your memories and make them readily accessible to browse and recall. Capture the memories that you say, type, or see. Capture: It's not designed to replace your existing methods of note taking, meeting recordings, or smartphone captures, but designed to “add” a new method to ambiently capture your stream of thought that otherwise would be forgotten/lost.. Our ultimate goal is to benefit individual human lives by retaining memories so they can be effortlessly and, more importantly, securely recalled.
