designers' own words:
the target user of the 'total recall agent' seed, is someone who wants to memorize previous experiences, particularly in the case of travelers who want to hold onto vivid memories about their experiences and show them to close friends and family.
the device acts as a 'travel agent' in the shape of a flying balloon that records one's activities while on vacation, using computer technology to share these travel experiences with others. the 'seed' focuses on the way of recording and sharing precious memories as vivid as possible. its services provide three values: sharing, remembering and guiding.
