1 Second Everyday

Last year, I came across an app called 1 Second Everyday. The app is based upon the principle of chronologically recording one second of your life, via the camera on your phone, each day for an entire year. The app allows you to edit a one second snippet from any video you have recorded during the course of the day. The idea is to record a video from your own perspective, as you experienced it, almost as if from your own eyes. This results in a six-minute video of your year, capturing your experiences and the people in your life.

The app was developed by Cesar Kuiryama, an American director & Entrepreneur. He spoke at TED 2012 and collected the funds for his application through a Kickstarter project.

At the end of each year, I usually find myself thinking that I could have done so much more with the year. Kuiryama said that the 1 Second Everyday project, made him realise that he needed “to do one interesting thing to make today count.”

Here’s a year long project, which might be an interesting way to kick off the New Year with!
