CES 2012: Play Video Memo
Traditional handwritten notes may be a thing of the past thanks to the Play video-memo device – designed by Hong Kong-based designer Fabien Nauroy for British handset manufacturers Native Union – that records and plays back video messages.
Shaped like a speech bubble, the miniature device has a 2.4-inch colour screen and three buttons: play, record, and delete, so users may record a message up to three minutes long using the 0.3-megapixel camera. An envelope icon indicates when a message is recorded and ready for listening. The device also has a magnetic back to attach to the fridge or other surfaces.
Spotted at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012 in Las Vegas last week, the Play device is available in white, black, pink, blue, red, green and purple colours.
