The team focused on sounds that hold special memories for people, such as a baby’s first word or a loved one’s singing voice, and the need to keep them alongside photographs.
“It started with the question -- what would it be like to own sound?”
The team came up with a paper-thin, square-shaped portable recorder that comes with two buttons -- record and play. With an exterior case made using a 3-D printer, the Spicki is lighter than regular recorders.
Users can carry it around and record meaningful sounds with ease. They can then present the recording to friends or family as a gift. The device also targets people learning new languages or musicians and writers who want to record a moment of inspiration for a future work. The recorder can be attached to any surface -- on a photo album, wall or desk.
“We thought of it as a Post-it recorder”
