Kapture, a Cincinnati, OH-based creator of a wristband that can capture and preserve what users just heard, completed a $680k seed funding.
Backers included CincyTech, Design 2 Matter, the Mountain View, CA- based industrial design firm that has designed and built the device, and other nnamed angel investors.
Co-founded by Mike Sarow and Matthew Dooley, Kapture is always on, buffering the last 60 seconds and waiting for users to determine when something happens. It then saves the last 60 seconds of audio and send it to the mobile app for editing and sharing.
The company, which had also completed a $162,386 Kickstarter campaign, plans to launch the wristband and mobile app in Spring 2014. Available in 6 colors, the product is currently offered for pre-order at www.kaptureaudio.com.
