Photo Album Cards: Your Collaborative Albums
About this project
Have you ever asked for photos & videos of a trip or a very special event?
Over the last few years we all have increased the number of photos and movies that we take thanks to our smartphones. Nowadays, it’s really tricky to share all of them privately because there isn’t a universal tool to create a collaborative album in which each user can upload their own files. Basically, this is what Photo Album Cards (PA-Cards) can do for you.
With PA-Cards you will be able to recover part of your memories that, otherwise, might be forgotten. Furthermore, PA-Cards will help you to keep them organized and ready to enjoy from anywhere on any device (it is only needed a web browser and internet connection).
PA-Cards are customized plastic cards linked to a private photo & video album on the Internet. Our project combines the advantages of both physical and digital worlds to improve the user experience.
- Collaborative Albums: When you go on a trip or attend a special event, it is difficult to keep privately all the pictures & videos that you have in common with a group of friends or relatives. Using PA-Cards you can recover that part of your memories that, otherwise, might be forgotten.
- Easy to Use: With PA-Cards you can open your album by using NFC, QR code or a Web link. Also Our cards can be archived like photos in traditional albums but taking up much less space. This way everyone can easily organize and find a specific collection like someone’s wedding, your last trip to Rome or your workmates.
- A Great Gift: All of our cards can be customized using some of your own photos. This makes our cards a special gift for your couple, family or friends.
- 5 GB Free Storage Expandable: Each of our albums includes 5 GB of free storage forever. Additionally whenever you wish, you can increase the storage capacity with any of our special offers.
- Privacy & Security: Only the owner of a PA-Card can access their albums using the secret code on their cards. Furthermore our servers have a high level of security and perform automatic backups to preserve your information.
- Multi-device and Multi-platform: PA-Cards system has been designed as a web page because this will allow the user to have access from any device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC) and any OS (Android, IOS, Windows…). You just need Internet connection and a web browser.
PA-Cards are really easy to use, you only have to follow these steps:
1) There are three different ways to use your PA-Card to open your album.
- NFC: Turn on the NFC of your device and touch it with the PA-Card. This option is only available for devices which support NFC tags.
- QR Code: Scan it using your favorite QR Code reader.
- Web link: Type it on your web browser.
2) Scratch the card and enter the secret code.
3) Enjoy your photos & videos. Each album’s user can upload their own files and view the complete album like slideshows.
- Keep your memories in common: PA-Cards are the best solution to privately share photos & videos with a closed group of friends or your family
- Easily organize: The ease of storing your digital memories like a paper album will help you to organize and find a specific collection at anytime.
- No extra cost: Each of our album cards includes a 5 GB free storage forever. Once you have purchased your album card there is no extra cost over the years.
- Privacy by design: Only the owner of a PA-Card can access their albums using the secret code on their cards.
- Security: Our servers have a high level of security and perform automatic backups to preserve your information.
- Versatile: You can access your album anywhere from any device because PA-Cards work as a web page.
- A Great Gift: All PA-Cards can be printed with your own photos; this makes our cards a great gift for your couple, family or friends.
Risks and challenges
We promise we will work tirelessly and passionately to produce a high-quality product that meets your expectations.
Our project does not involve high risks of execution; however, it is a technological challenge and could arise some difficulties. The main obstacles that we have detected are making the platform, manufacturing the cards and shipping them worldwide. For this reason, by the time we reach the fundraising goal, we will begin to work hard to ensure the deadlines.
We want to be totally honest and we will answer your questions and comments as quickly as possible. We are looking forward to working on this exciting project!
