How can we improve the Narrative Experience?

Welcome to the Narrative Suggestion Board!

If you are a Narrative Clip user, I hope you’ve enjoyed using our Clip so far!

With effect from 13 March 2016, We will be temporarily suspending this suggestion board. We are currently in the process of shipping all our pre-orders rapidly and we would like to focus our efforts on providing better personal support to our users over email.

If you are having issues with your Clip, the most effective manner would be to check our Narrative Care Knowledge Base at http://care.getnarrative.com, which is full of information. If you are still unable to find a solution, then please feel free to reach out to us via the care website.

Thank you for your understanding!

  1. waterproof / waterproof case

    To have either the device itself be completely watertight or to have a waterproof case to put on it would be great! In the instance of rain or if I were to take it to a pool or water-based activity I would love to see the moments Memoto could capture for me.

    • memory

      off loading memory is an important issue when used during a no internet access/no computer access environment. i would like to suggest either 2 versions or the decision to opt for a microSD card slot to accept up to 8GB cards instead of fixed storage. the data stored on the mircoSD can still be inserted in the device and connected to the computer for upload. (eg:) if the User only has one microSD card and a HyperDrive, even if the stored images were not accessible to the User (due to manner how coordinates etc is saved) the data can still…

      • Add security line to device

        I wrote this in another email, but I might as well write this suggestion here where it belongs :-)

        Is there a security line included with the device? Since the memoto will be clipped on your clothes, there is a fair risk of it being "brushed off", for example in a crowd.

        • Consider replacement options/strategies for the rechargeable battery

          Rechargeable batteries have limits to their useful "life" - a certain number of renewals before they are spent up. Should Memoto camera owners plan to replace the entire unit, will the batteries be user-replaceable, or will the Memoto company set up a Customer Service department, handling hundreds and thousands of battery-replacement tasks every month?

          I would recommend a user-serviceable battery replacement strategy, however this opens up its own set of risks.

          • fit a MICRO SD card into the Memoto itself

            It'd be awesome if you could fit a MICRO SD card into the Memoto itself though, those things a pretty small, or what about making it a tiny bit thicker so you could use Eye-Fi SD card (SD with wi-fi included) ? That would truly be amazing, and if the point is to be able to do it offline, even if the Memeto itself were to be a bit bigger, it would be easier than having to carry a separate dock :) (From backer Francisco Noriega)

                • Provide ClipOn covers in different colours.

                  I had a clip. Quite often I felt I would like the Clip to melt in colourwise. A white clip goes well with a white shirt, but stands out too much on a blue or black shirt.

                  I suggest that you provide a bag with interchangable ClipOn covers in different colours, some of them should be 'murky' or have graphics. A bag with six different colours would give enough options.

                  This ClipOn could also double as a lens cap and shut down the camera if clipped on in 'wrong' position: the hole for the lens turned 90°.

                  • Need options for frame adjustments

                    Could be solved w/ software. I am getting a lot of sky pictures because of where the Narrative clip lands, i.e., my chest points the lens up. I've been wearing the clip on my waistband to help this, but when sitting this isn't possible. I think a wider angle might solve this, but also adjustable frames or different presets could help. Tried a necklace but that bounces around too much. Other ideas welcome!

                    • Dock for car dashcam

                      Dock/mode to turn device into car dashcam with Wifi for auto upload when home. Dock mounted to dash/window, user snaps in, takes a drive, device captures for evidence (in case of accident, etc). Can also capture GPS speed data to help evidence and disprove speeding tickets.

                      • Rotating Clip

                        The top of the clip could be a rotating bar, with a double clip back plate, so the clip itself is like a thin metalic peg, but the body of the camera has the ability to face forward, even if the wearer is bending over. It is just a thought, if your body is facing the ground, but you are looking up/forward (a number of activities could have this body type position result) you don't want to camera taking a photo of the ground. This thought came to me while playing snooker/pool.

                        • Product extension: MyMoto Skin

                          Hello, Sell MyMoto Skins, you ninnies! Think iphone skin.

                          Only engineers want a plain, flat, boring surface. MyMoto Skin if sold separately, would sell for $25. Sold w/ Memoto, they'd sell for $20. Your cost would be less than a nickle per. MyMoto Skins are dye-cut, adhesive-backed stick-on skins of various artistic designs that would allow owners to customize their Memoto...like an iphone skin. Duh!

                          • Place a button on the camera to take on demand photos

                            For folks who don't want to life log, having a button on the camera (or touch sensitive mechanism) to take on demand photos would be greater to capture those special moments without having to whip out your phone or camera. Place a 1 or 2 second delay on taking the picture after the button is pressed to allow the wearer to stand still.

                            Cool hats with a built in place for the camera would also be pretty neat... bringing attention to the entire concept... maybe give them away free... sort of a walking billboard

                            • Publish the 3d design of the clip for 3d-printing

                              I like to be able to design (and 3d-print) several accessories to secure (or wear) the Narrative clip to severall different objects (besides the clip provided). Like a GoPro camera I like to be able to attach the clip to my handlebars etcetera.

                              An exact 3d model of the current dimensions of the clip would be very welcome for this, so we can start to design our accessories with tools like SketchUp.

                                • Offer additional mounts

                                  The concept of interchangeable mounts is great and it would be beneficial to many of us if you offered additional (optional) mounts. One that would be valuable to me is a mount that would be suitable on a sloping dashboard.

                                    • 90 degree rotation clip.

                                      I would like to see a 90 degree rotation clip. This would allow easy portrait or landscape use, which at mo is really annoying. It could be a clip with a ball socket which would allow rotation and tilting.

                                      • design it for road cyclists. We can use it to help us identify cars who buzz or hit us.

                                        As an avid road cyclist in the states, I'm increasingly encroached upon by cars. They're supposed to give me 3 feet when they pass but that's not always the case. I can't always grab their license plate numbers but if I had small, fast durable video camera that could record it, it would help ensure I have the information. And with enough cyclists and press, it would help us encourage better road sharing.

                                        • Self leveling mount or user leveling mount

                                          Particularly on women's clothes it is hard to get a clipable position that has the Narrator level and looking straight a ahead. Many images lose good parts because they are on an angle; after rotating in post processing a lot has to be cropped to get back to a rectangular image.
                                          So it would be good to have some sort of ball pivot system in the clip mount so the Narrative can self rotate so it is level and the right way up. Obviously this would have to be damped.
                                          Even of this could be done manually it would help…
