Relive a Dutch start-up:
Relive, a Dutch start-up that has been touring a little under the technology media radar till now, may just be onto some thing. Motivated by the experience of its creators during a bicycling trip whilst on vacation in Tenerife earlier last year, the organization turns activity data, such as that obtained from devices made by Strava or Garmin, and brings together this with images you have taken to make 3D animated video clips.
The application has currently been used by expert cyclists to document their improvement in the Tour de France, and I collect Instagram founder Kevin Systrom has taken Relive for a drive. But, probably more note-worthy, the start-up has seen almost half a thousand users sign up, who are developing 100,000 videos per day, obviously.
Co Founder of Relive:
“We noticed there was an chance we absolutely required to catch. So we began building our concept on that similar holiday,” Relive co-founder Yousef El-Dardiry informs me. “When we distributed a initial version about a year ago, it easily spread and 1000’s and thousands of bike riders around the globe began using it”.
The chance was that, as fun as it is to catch action data, raw numbers alone don’t go extremely far in informing the real story. What was needed was a way to not only instantly visualise that information, but do it in a way that puts feelings back into “reliving” a riding a bike trip and, in the foreseeable future, any outdoor action, such as a hike or road holiday.
“Current activities trackers concentrate on statistics, health and efficiency-based metrics, which we think is excellent, but only catches one side of the encounter,” says the Relive co-founder.
“Anything was missing here; what occurs online, doesn’t perfectly reflect what happened off-line. People go out to have exciting with buddies, explore new roadways and limits, find stunning views, developing their own adventures. For most, it is not only about coaching but also simply about having a excellent time outside”.

To handle this, Relive lets you make a more private 3D video story of your outside adventures. By bashing your activity data mixed with GPS and time-stamped images from your cellphone or electronic digital camera, the resulting video gives you a 3 dimensional fly-through of the path, highlighting landmarks, such as related pictures you’ve obtained, pinned to a map.
“For our end users, it’s the initial time they can let friends and family truly encounter their journey. Anybody, not just bike riders, can understand what you have obtained during the ride, whether it is climbing terrific heights, protecting large ranges or witnessing amazing views,” adds El-Dardiry.
At the same time, however, the application is yet to produce revenue whilst the team remains stead-fastly concentrated on growth and improving the item. “To be sincere, we still need to determine out our business model. With our present growth, that shouldn’t be as well complicated, particularly when we crack the 1 million mark in end users, expected someplace this summer,” says El-Dardiry.
I also comprehend Relive lately closed $1 million in seeds financing from a number of undisclosed shareholders.
