How EVOKE Works

Parents needn't fear forgetting their memories and experiences with their children. Instead they can recall and retell them to Evoke during bedtime. Each memory saved as a star and re-shared with children to enhance the memory sharing experience.

Enjoy time spent with your kids as they grow up.

Retell your memories. The audio will be saved alongside photos from your home photo network.

Each memory is saved like a star in your memory galaxy.

Bring the device to share your life stories during bedtime.

Set it down, uncork the wand and let the memories spill out into the room.

Stars act like queues for memories you've forgotten. They spark a conversation for the bigger story to re-tell and re-live.
