Vine and Instagram videos are just two of the tools that let us share video content within our own lives or better yet let everyone share a compiled set of videos of one same event tagged with the same hashtags. They both let us connect to share our worlds with friends, families and strangers alike. However there is a missing component to it all: real-time streaming. Both still require for a file to be saved and uploaded, but neither takes us into the world of the recorder as it’s happening.
Perceptar allows you to see through the phone of friends and followers alike, anyone that is filming live on the network in ‘public’ mode. It gives you the ability to share a moment or explore the world and live events via #hashtags. It allows you to jump from live video stream to another video stream or the chance to explore the world from a first person perspective on your mobile. Want to know what’s going on in Tokyo right now? Well hashtag it and jump on a live stream from someone filming right now. What if you’re running late to the Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concert, don’t worry, just hashtag it and see if someone is filming the concert in real-time so you don’t miss a moment.
Founded by serial entrepreneur Chris Joannou from Melbourne, Australia, Perceptar gives us the opportunity to see the world from new perspectives and see life unfold from that of another. Much like real-time YouTube streams, Perceptar gives you a mobile experience to share life through a lens across the globe. The possibilities are endless for what can be shared, maybe it’s an entertainment event or a doctor who needs help with surgery, it’s like FaceTime, but you see what they are doing rather then their faces.
Perceptar is currently signing up Beta users.
