🕒Teleport back to any moment and revisit your memories

Wist Labs is developing a smartphone app that turns everyday videos into virtual reality (VR) experiences, similar to a concept from Netflix's "Black Mirror".

Vivid, the VR application, is currently in its beta stage and is designed to work with the Quest VR headset.

It allows users to:

  • 📸 Record memorable moments.

  • 📤 Upload them to the VR headset.

  • 🕶️ Watch and interact with these experiences in a 3D VR world.

  • 👥 Invite friends to join in these VR memories.

Capture, save, and relive your memories

The app captures the 3D aspects of footage, transforming regular recordings into immersive, three-dimensional environments. Users can revisit their past, with options to:

  • Rewind.

  • Explore different aspects of their recorded scenes.

This technology is reminiscent of "Black Mirror's" episode 'The Entire History of You,' where characters access memories through an implanted device. However, in Vivid's case, the memories are captured using a smartphone equipped with:

  • Advanced sensors.

  • 3D capture software.

Andrew McHugh, the founder of Wist, believes that the right mix of sensor technology and software can create spatial moments that users can step back into, offering a new way to preserve and relive memories.

This innovation by Wist Labs illustrates the evolving capabilities of VR, expanding its applications from entertainment and professional training to personal memory capture and reliving experiences.

With the VR market rapidly growing and impacting various sectors, technologies like Vivid present exciting possibilities for the future of digital interaction and personal storytelling.

Google researchers have developed VideoPoet, a new language model capable of creating videos from various inputs like text, images, videos, and audio.

VideoPoet can convert text to video, modify existing videos, and even generate audio from videos.

What VideoPoet can do:

  • Text to video

  • Image to video with text prompts

  • Video to audio

  • Alter an existing video, using text prompts

VideoPoet also can create a short film by compiling several short clips (watch the short film)


Midjourney's version 6 (v6) model generates images that are extremely similar, or nearly identical, to existing copyrighted artworks.

A user prompted the model with the phrase "Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie, 2019, screenshot from a movie, movie scene." The output was an almost identical still from the 2019 film "Joker," starring Joaquin Phoenix.
