I recently visited a site that has all the great and cheesy music videos from the 80s.
As I went through them, I actually got a bit choked up. I had not heard many of the songs since the 80s. They immediately made me recall that time and place vividly.
The $41M funded startup Color, which is explained in detail here, allows everyone in a single location to instantly share the photos they are taking in that location at that moment with everyone in their current location including complete strangers.
This concept could go far. Imagine an event in a single location where there are thousands of people taking photos with this app. You can basically have a real time recreation of that entire event, second by second, from every possible angle, stitched together.
Now, imagine if you could revisit that recreation 30 years in the future. I choked up watching 80s music videos. Imagine if I could go back and see a recreation of my high school prom, my birthday parties, a family visit to Disney World, etc.
I have photos, but these tend to be direct-facing photos of specific friends and families in specific areas. With this “Color” concept, you can see what happened around the event at the edges that marked that place and time. It will absorb you and provide context to your photos.
It’s freaky, it’s sci-fi, it’s freakin’ cool.
Enjoy this 80s classic
