Get a Play and leave a personalized video message instead of the old fashioned pen and paper…



Native Union, a company driven to reinvent the art of conversation, today announced the launch of Play, a video memo pad that puts a modern twist on everyday messages. Play combines a high quality video camera, sophisticated audio recording system, and 2.4-inch color LCD screen, allowing users to make to-do lists, good-mornings or I’ll-miss-you’s fun, playful and personalized.

The Play video memo pad can store three minutes of video in one full-length message or in multiple, shorter messages at one time. Equipped with a magnetized back, Play can be mounted to a refrigerator or any metallic surface, and a simple three-button design makes it easy for users of all ages to record and view a message. The device, which will be available at the end of September for $59.99, comes in an array of high-gloss colors including green, pink, blue, purple, red, white and black.

“The Play video memo pad brings a truly playful element into everyday life at home,” said John Brunner, managing director, Native Union. “It’s a lot more fun to leave a to-do list for your kids or a grocery list for your spouse with video, but more than that, we hope that Play will encourage kids and adults alike to leave funny, heartfelt, or loving messages for each other more often. We want Play to become the first thing that people go to each day to see what fun new messages might be waiting for them.”
