With yet another week of pitching to AngelsCube screening committee at eOffice Holborn, we can’t help but get more and more impressed with the level of innovation, perseverance and ambition we see in every entrepreneur. The diversity and uniqueness of ideas as well as the proficiency of their execution is of the highest level, reminding us of earlier quote by Adam Fletcher:
Having a website or an app does not make you a startup, owning a leather jacket does not make you Batman
And certainly these startups live up to the highest of expectations. Here are some of the the interesting ideas presented to AngelsCube Screening Committee:
Traces – Beau Lotto
Neuroscientist Dr Beau Lotto presented his immersive messaging app Traces, which lets people leave messages for each other in real-world locations.
Using augmented reality and GPS as well as peer-to-peer messaging, the app enables users to leave ‘traces’ in any location and spot of their choice. They can leave any type of content- from pictures to videos and music – all in the real world for friends to discover.
The idea behind the app was inspired by Lotto’s research as a neuroscientist into human perception and the conclusion that people appreciate a gift way more when they have to work harder for it. The digital age has on some level converted us to passive recipients, which Traces is trying to challenge, bring back a different, more real level of engagement with audiences in location specific ways.
eRevalue- Marbella Alma and J P Lecourt
