Tech To Soon Offer Way for People to Interact Across Generations
Hello. Imagine picking up the phone and having a virtual face-to-face conversation with a long-dead relative or someone famous. Now technology can make that possible. I wanted every great-great grandchild of someone living today to be able to get to know that relative in a completely different way than they would have ever been able to do. An app created by the company Storyfile will soon be available for users to record answers to questions about their lives and save it for future generations. The person that I would trust the most with my life completely, 100 percent, would be my husband. Anyone with access to this account can then have a conversation of sorts with a person who recorded these answers. Who would you trust with your life?
A person's answers can also be placed in a public mode so anyone with the app can interact with that person. In the future, another possible application would allow users looking for work to include a link of their answers to job applications or to a social media page, so that potential employers or friends can learn about you in an interactive way.

From these cameras to your smartphone interactive life histories can help connect the present to the past in a more personal way.
