Photos of you and your friends, social media, and other forms of recording your life don’t capture the essence of your life, but the significant events. Cloud Capsule aims to change that by allowing you to not only revisit the significant events in your life, but also the pleasant of anecdotal subtleties that slip through the cracks and are forgotten. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Cloud Capsule is a web application that prompts you for things like: "What's your favourite song at the moment?" "Upload a photo of something you did today." "Write something you want to tell your future self." ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Cloud Capsule then stores this information in the Cloud and returns it to the user after a given time (which cannot be changed). Some suggested ones are 1 month, 6 months, 1 year. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- We are entering 3 categories: Freshbooks - "Best Heroes Hack" A service which will help people not only with memories, but also have a lot of potential for inspiration and goal setting. Set your weight loss goals, academic goals when you upload your capsule. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Wacom - "Best Design and Graphics" Although the full design of the website is not live. The mock up of what Cloud Capsule will look like is available on our Dropbox. We're aiming at making something intuitive and fun that looks great! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Microsoft - "Most Creative Service App" This is the most relevant category. Our aim is to differentiate Cloud Capsule from other means on the web which focus on highlighting the significant events in someone's life (your photos from Thailand, getting to the top of Machu Picchu etc). Cloud Capsule aims to allow people to remember the smaller details of life. The more anecdotal and seemingly-insignificant memories that bring pleasant nostalgia back in your mind.
