About this project
Memori makes possible for people to interact with another person’s thoughts and memories, resulting in fascinating immersive experiences.
Memori will recognize the key-object and you will be able to associate it to your loved one(s).
it links answers and thoughts to the person you will give the object(s) to
You can leave text, pictures and voice registrations
MEMORI IS YOUR DOOR TO THE BIGGEST ADVENTURE IN YOUR LIFE
Memori can recognize an object placed on it and automatically retrieve interactive memories linked to the object itself or to the person linked to it. By logging-in to Memori through a browser a user (receiver user) can interact, like in a chat, with the owner of the device, who previously recorded their thoughts.
The owner of this device can store their words, secrets, questions and answers, while waiting for future users, to log on and interact with Memori as if they were talking directly to them.
HOW TO USE MEMORI
Memori srl is a startup based in Bologna (Italy) and established by Nunzio Fiore. Nunzio was co-founder of the tech company coders51, a firm with headquarters in Bologna and specialized in complex Web platforms, mobile and IoT. Now he has embarked on a new and revolutionary venture: he is launching Memori, a digital “memory box” that transforms our thoughts into an interactive experience. Memori is an object with a plain and simple design, which users visualize in the suggestive shape of a stylized treasure chest. Texts, images and audio files can be stored in Memori, but what makes it truly unique are two important functions that transform memories into an interactive experience.
HOW WE DID IT
The fundamental technology of Memori was developed through extensive research in IoT and adaptive bots conducted by Nunzio and supported by the coders51 team and other professionals: these systems can interpret the user's questions and give accurate and relevant answers. With Memori this technology is shifted to an emotional level: talking to Memori means interacting with someone who would like to share their thoughts and feelings instead of their services.
- linked to loved ones - by choosing an object that will become the chosen person's key object public
- anyone who is not the owner can unlock memories left public linked to objects
- you can tag some objects in order to leave some thoughts connected to the same ones. For example, from pictures to books, so that you can leave testimony of what those objects mean to us.
HARDWARE AND BACKUP
An important feature of Memori is the fact that it is connected to an innovative startup which invests its turnover mainly in research and development. The most important priority of our roadmap software is to never abandon those who own a Memori. We will make it possible for anyone to update it by a simple push button, or even automatically. By this doing, we assure our clients that they will enjoy increasingly advanced functions.
The second priority of our roadmap software is the backup service. We will assure backup and restore procedures that can allow the updating of Memori and its maintenance.
MNEMONICS AND EMOTIONAL DISEASES RESEARCH
At the end of the Kickstarter campaign and the start of a massive production, we are planning a study with medical experts specialized in the cure of Mnemonics and Emotional Diseases, to develop a version of Memori that can be useful to people who have problems with their memory.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE RESEARCH
Later we will start a study to introduce some principles of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which are useful to enhance the Memori search engine and to make it respond with a precision that allows it to learn and to refine itself over time, in order to become more and more similar to us.
Memori will be sold in three versions. The first has a capacity of 16GB. We have developed the software so that it can store, besides an almost incalculable number of textual memories, up to 3000 images and up to 500 hours of audio recordings.
The second has a capacity of 32GB. Ideal for those who wish to enrich their memories with the most exciting pictures and audio recordings. It can save up to 8000 images and up to 1200 hours of audio recordings.
The 64gb version is the version for your life. You can save your textual memories without limitation and up to 16,000 images and 2500 hours of speech. This means that you could speak for 8 hours a day for a year and record it. The memories and stories that Memori helps to preserve are precious and extraordinary: the more space you have, the more memories and emotions you can store in your Memori box. The more memories it contains, the more similar it will be to you.
EXCLUSIVE COMMUNITY MEMBER
We have developed some rewards which will give access to the Exclusive Community Member to a limited number of backers. Memori is just the first of a series of products that we have in our pipeline and that will be useful to manage and store your memories over time. We will have products and applications which are useful to backup, upgrade, make remote registrations and a lot more. Community members will be entitled to 20% discount on every product or service forever. They will also receive an invitation to use the products in advance and will have direct contact with us for feedback and maintenance.
We have studied a series of rewards that will be able to help everyone to take part in giving life to this project.
In particular, we would like to highlight:
- with 25 Euro you can find postcards, three-dimensional objects that will lead you to see real examples in Internet of what it would be like to have a Memori.
- with 50 Euro, a limited number of backers will be able to acquire the right to purchase any product we will develop in the future with 20% discount forever and be part of a community of selected early adopters who will always have our products and updates before anyone else
- we have then the three LIMITED categories of super early adopters, early adopters and kickstarter price, which feature 30% , 20% and 15% discounts off the list price. FIRST 700 backers in that category will be in community for feedback and early adopter with 20% life time discount as the 50 euro reward.
- finally, in addition to the two-pack Memori boxes, we have three special categories that sell at the standard sale price of Memori plus the possibility to be part of the early adopter community, who will always have 20% discount on all our future products and services.
The minimum target we want to achieve is 100,000 Euro, but we have set some goals that we will gradually release as the figure increases, thanks to the support of our bakers. A goal that we consider particularly important is the 300,000 Euro one, which should suffice to start a study to support the research project of a Memori dedicated to memory disorders.
The long road to be the first science fiction company:
HOW CAN I USE MEMORI?
The applications of Memori are based on positive memories, experiences and distance, both in time and in space: for instance, it is possible to record one's states of mind when a child is born or starts walking, and retrieve them or share them when he or she comes of age. Memories can be associated with the child’s first shoes, which will be recognized by Memori, or to any object that might trigger the recollection of a special moment.
With Memori one can also take some snapshots of one's emotional growth and rediscover them years later, in order to see them and see oneself again in the contents. It is possible to entrust Memori with our answers to “big” questions as well - like life, challenges, goals, lessons, or advice - and let people discover them: what would I like to say to my daughter on the day of her birth, when she can't understand me yet? Loved ones who are far away or life-long friends can receive a precious interactive Memori treasure chest, so they can recall the traces we have chosen to leave them in a sort of time capsule.
One of the main characteristics of this object is its independence from devices, operative systems, services or platforms, which might not exist or be based on different standards in a few years: with Memori you know for certain that it will always be possible to access the experiences stored therein.
Nunzio said: "We could have developed a mobile app, but smartphones did not exist ten years ago and in ten years they will have become obsolete. Memori is a real object that will exist and accompany you forever. We will update the device remotely ; however, if this should become impossible in the future, Memori will still be yours and you will be able to consult it in 50 years just as you are able to do so today."
We have considered different usage scenarios. You can use it to leave some memories to someone, to make a journey and leave some objects that describe your trip, maybe to let someone else recall and retrace the same itinerary in the future. You can leave secrets linked to objects around the world and encourage somebody to live an adventure . We have always felt a need for adventure: thanks to Memori, you can live it at last and let a loved one live it as well. There are people who would like to use Memori to chat with their past self in the future. We are only at the beginning of our adventure and we are eager to know how all of you will use it.
Memori is the brainchild of Nunzio Fiore, 40 years old, a web developer and innovator from Milan, whose inspiration has always been drawn from both technology and emotions: as a programmer and writer, he combines his passion for hi-tech with didactics by teaching children about robotics. As far as functions and design are concerned, the concept was developed by Eugenia Vallini, an art director and designer with a passion for technology and cyberpunk, who created the identity of Memori. Memori is already a reality in prototype form; the first units were produced in 3D printing and built using development components with the help of the firm TryeCo 2.0. The industrial production of Memori and the commercial launch worldwide is the reason of this Kickstarter campaign. The first units will be delivered by the end of 2017.
All the people in the Memori team can help to achieve the success of this great project. Those people are:
Web Developer since 1998. Experience in web (java, ruby on rails) and IoT. My passion for the world of social networks led me to develop tons of Facebook web sites and tab apps, integrations with Twitter and OAuth protocol in general. Then I approached Raspberry Pi and started to create things by using everything I had learnt before in a new and interesting way. The team I built up with coders51 use functional languages like Elixir and Erlang to transform their services into useful products capable of speeding up the development of web, mobile and IoT applications.
Software house for web, mobile and IoT innovation. Big experience in microservices architectures.

Memori prototype and 3D printing
One of the partners of Memori Srl with expertise in packaging, printing and shipping.
Special thanks to:
- Manuel Casagrande: who helped us with video making.
- Roberto Previtera: who shared his robot production skills with Nunzio during long nights of working on building Memori hardware.
- Carlo Alberto Degli Atti: who will provide us with an innovative customer support product with his company “Thingle Me”.
- All the people who helped us to complete this campaign, and followed us on Facebook.
We chose to work with Kickstarter in order to immediately have a number of orders that allows us enough margin to purchase a mold for industrial production and to raise the funds necessary to roll out the Memori for Mnemonics and Emotional Diseases and Memori with Artificial Intelligence Integration projects.
Risks and challenges
When producing an high tech object there are normally certain risks associated with it which hopefully I have minimised.
As an aged developer and CEO of a software company I am perfectly placed to deliver this project to a very high standard. I have over 18 years’ experience in developing and my team can develop for embed and web without any problem. For the production I created a great team where we have Eugenia Vallini as art director and communication, Tryeco for the 3D printing, a big typography for packaging, laser cutting and high volume production, and other people experts in shipment and distribution. We have also people for circuit design and modeling. We are also trusted by an incubator ( VZ19) and I believe that the power of a big project is a good team and I worked a lot in these years to have the best professionals figures with me and my dreams.
