Memoways introduces Comet

Something is missing on the web.

When you watch a video on Youtube for example, you are looking at a static file: a bit like a PDF, it will never change, evolve or allow you to personalize the story you get.

Imagine that the video stream is adapting itself to your questions, your needs or even your behavior

We created Comet…

COMET-VideoPlayer-steps-web

Comet connects a video to a stream of video fragments.
On one hand, you have an edited movie, telling a story in a closed and linear form.
On the other hand, you have a stream of video fragments, giving access to additional information in an open and dynamic way.
The head of the Comet is the edited movie, while the trail is the stream of video fragments.
The use of the video player is very simple: watch a video, select interesting topics just by clicking on keywords that will dynamically appear under the video and create a personal playlist of additional content, you can then remix and share.
Comet enables users to easily create and share their experiences with video !

Memowalk on the podium of the ESNC award

The mobile video application concept of Memowalk was awarded at the ESNC Swiss Regional Award 2015 with the third place.

For the 12th year running, the ESNC has proven to be a success with 515 submissions from more than 40 different countries.

We would like to congratulate you as your idea took the 3rd place in the ranking list and was recognized by the Expert Panel. The competition was very high and you were very close to win the competition for the Most Promising application idea for European GNSS.

Once the accuracy of the GPS positionning system becomes widely available and easy to implement, it’s up to companies like Memoways to provide users with original usages.
The Memowalk concept uses the GPS signal (in combination with the accelerometer) to create behavioral patterns. With those patterns it is possible to generate a story that « fits » with the behavior of a user, over time.

We have several ideas and available code to realize innovative usages – now we « just » have to find partners with financial capacities to bring them to the world.

Move Your Story: the mobile app for Android

In the frame of the research project Move Your Story we worked on a new version of Memowalk for Android.

Here is an overview of the features of this mobile app that will be used for several projects in the next months. The whole app can be customized in order to fit to the needs of each individual customer:
– icon / logo
– splash screen and the overall design
– algorithm
– help / about

At this point, the publishing of the movie is not implemented yet, but it is possible to watch, rename and delete each walk/movie within the mobile app.
