Lumenaki launches version 2.0 of world’s first personal content platform allowing users to manage all digital memory from their mobile - Web Summit, 3-5 November 2015

Fran Lambert - 06-oct.-2015 11:33:18
French start-up Lumenaki’s promise “Record, Recall, Relive” is fulfilled by its innovative new iPhone app, which it will be showcasing in November at Web Summit 2015 in Dublin, set up in partnership with French Tech by Business France, the French export-support agency.   Described as a “Life Content Manager”, Lumenaki is the first mobile platform to offer all services needed to manage our digital memory: a personal content management system, an online publishing tool and a private social network. Users can securely gather, organise, publish and control all their digital memories and life moments from a single mobile app. From smart photo apps like Dropbox Carousel, Google Photos and Facebook Moments to storytelling tools such as Storehouse, Steller and now the Microsoft Sway app, there are a whole host of apps to help us visually present moments in our lives and tell their story. Yet this experience remains somewhat incomplete; partly because presentation is often impersonal and reflects little emotion, and partly because not one of these apps succeeds in managing all our personal content in a way that recreates those unique moments that make our lives special. These moments cannot be summarised in photos and videos alone. They also include other personal content and contextual information which, once gathered, help to make up the complete journey. We create a large amount of this content every day on top of our photos and videos (quotes, notes, contact information, check-ins, posts on social networking sites, etc.) but it is useless if it is scattered across too many different sites and applications. We can’t benefit from our digital memory unless we reconnect all these aspects of our lives. Lumenaki takes a radically different approach by providing a new service to fully manage and control users’ digital memory. Its innovative new mobile service offers a unique way to securely capture, gather, organise and share all of its users’ personal digital content using a single mobile app whose design and user interface enhances content and makes it possible for users to relive the emotion of the moment. Lumenaki’s new iPhone app enables users to: • Centralise all their personal content and life moments in one secure place: photos, videos, previous and future social posts, notes, thoughts, addresses, contacts and maps; • Organise their content into thematic albums and personalise them as they like; • Relive the emotions experienced at the time; • Decide who has access and who can contribute: invite and revoke readers, co-create and collaborate thanks to shared albums, publish albums online like a blog or keep them for their eyes only; • Maintain full control and ownership. Following positive user feedback and in line with its vision, Lumenaki has now developed version 2.0 of its mobile platform, which it will be showcasing at Web Summit 2015. Version 2.0 will boast a new dashboard, a new way to organise and browse albums, a tutorial to help first-time users and a smart album suggestion assistant, among other exciting new features. The Lumenaki app is free and available to download on the AppStore . Version 2.0 of the app will be available to download on 29th October 2015, one week ahead of Web Summit. About Lumenaki Lumenaki was founded by CEO Cédric Garcin, who has over 20 years of experience in complex international digital and technical projects, alongside COO David Dzialowski and CSO Michael Goossens, Lumenaki investors and active partners. The company has raised €245,000 of seed funding to date and is currently preparing for a new round of fundraising.

Immersive social media: Beloola paves the way for online virtual reality at Web Summit 2015 in Dublin

Fran Lambert - 29-sept.-2015 16:03:59
Beloola will be showcasing its innovative online social platform at Web Summit 2015 on the French Tech Pavilion, which has been set up by Business France, the French export-support agency, in partnership with French Tech. Exhibiting on Thursday 5 November in the main hall next to French Tech (T802), Beloola was selected by a jury of French and Irish experts based on the disruptive innovation of its product and the relevance of its technology.  Beloola’s new virtual reality platform gives a preview of what is likely to be the future of an Internet where users will interact with content and meet other users in virtual environments and in real-time, providing a much more immersive web experience. The Internet has pretty much remained the same for 25 years now; an endless galaxy of pages where the sheer overflow of information has led to younger generations favouring mobile internet and its straightforward applications. Convinced that the web had become boring, French entrepreneur Tom Gauthier founded Beloola with a view to disrupting the Internet and demonstrating what is likely to become a new web standard in the future. The platform represents a transition towards a new version of the Internet that is centred on virtual reality. Beloola provides a much more immersive Internet experience thanks to its 3D graphics and navigation, enabling an Internet browser to engage the user as much as a games console. Show your life with emotion  Every user has their own avatar and can interact with others. People with shared passions can therefore congregate in the same 3D environment and share the same content in real-time. Content is enhanced by total immersion in the 3D environment and user emotions are heightened. Be the architect of your own 3D immersion Almost all content available on the major platforms available on the Internet (Spotify, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) can be integrated into the user’s 3D virtual space. All of these 3D virtual spaces are user-owned and user generated and Beloola provides an intuitive builder tool to allow users to build structures and add 3D objects and assets. Beloola as a business tool Any kind of business or private entity such as a brand, a sports franchise or a fan club can use Beloola to create its own tailored 3D virtual space and provide a new experience for its community. The platform also allows its audience to be monetized thanks to the integration of e-commerce sites directly within the 3D environment and also through cross-selling, advertising, behavioural targeting and premium subscriptions. Examples: ●  www.beloola.com/psg ●  www.beloola.com/gap ● www.beloola.com/boilerroom   Beloola is available anywhere and anytime. The whole platform runs under webGL, a dynamic 3D programming interface for web pages and HTML5 applications created by Khronos Group. This technology allows for Beloola to be available on any operating system and for users to access Beloola without any additional software or plugin. Beloola is being optimized for mobile and virtual reality headsets such as Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard. The latter will allow users to navigate from a subjective point of view. Beloola is currently participating in Boost VC in San Mateo, California, a start-up acceleration program specialising in bitcoin and virtual reality founded by the Draper family. About Beloola Founded by Tom Gauthier in 2009, Beloola was developed and adapted by V-Cult, based in Lille, France. V-Cult was the first company to emerge from the EuraTechnologies incubator. V-Cult raised funds in 2009, 2012 and 2014 and participated in several competitions such as MidemLab in 2012, where it was nominated as one of the ten most promising music industry start-ups in the ‘Marketing and Social Engagement’ category. The company was also a finalist in the French Touch Conference in New York in 2014 alongside 12 other French start-ups, and was nominated in the ‘Seed’ category, representing French start-ups with the most international market potential.

For each interactive video published online, users have access to advanced analytical data, such as the number of views, completion rate and even the click rate on each interactive element. For editorial interactive videos, the average click rate is around 20-25%. Adways targets five markets: 1.

The spread of tactile devices calls for videos to be watched in a new way, where users can actively engage with information. Conceived with the purpose of making interactive videos, Adways aims to provide people with better ways of engaging with the information in videos. Its disruptive cloud-based platform enables users to add content (such as photos, videos, websites and social media feeds) directly to their videos.
