Photo Album Story Teller puts words into pictures

Business start-up idea for voice recorded memoriesAlthough the scrapbooking trend has been on the radar for a few years, it doesn’t look likely to slow down any time soon.

 

 

With the spread of social media, people seem even more determined to savour the joy that comes from looking at old photos in a beautifully presented album.

 

There’s now a way you can enhance that experience to ensure every viewer is fully informed about the images in front of them.

 

The Photo Album Story Teller allows users to give voice to their prized pictures.

 

The battery-powered device comes packaged with 500 individually coded stickers. Consumers append a sticker to the photo of their choice, scan the picture with the Story Teller and record their say on the snapshot.

 

The next time the device passes over the picture, the story will begin playing through its speakers.

 

Consumers across all demographics are embracing mobile tools that allow them to encode physical objects with new data sets, be they recorded memories or website links.

 

The Story Teller is a relatively low-tech and senior-friendly take on this phenomenon. A start-up could easily develop the concept to cater for schools, clubs and people recently returned from overseas trips – anyone who wishes to add words to their photographic memories.
