One Second Everyday App

Record 1 Second of Your Life Every Day For 365 Days

On his 30th birthday, Cesar Kuriyama quit his job and started creating a viral video — he just didn't know it yet. The project was an ambitious one: to record a moment every day for the rest of his life.

He cut footage from the first year of his undertaking into a film, and the result was this remarkable six-minute-long video collage. Most of the recordings were shot on an iPhone 4 or 4S (with an Olloclip ($70) for the fish-eye scenes), and the rest were filmed on a Canon 7D, Lumix Z53, and GoPro HD.

The project had such a positive impact on Cesar's life that he launched a Kickstarter campaign to turn his idea into an app called 1 Second Everyday that stitches one-second-long videos into a continuously evolving movie. The app accesses your camera roll and compiles the footage for you, then sends a daily reminder in case you forget.

Since it's still in development, 1 Second Everyday isn't available on the Apple App Store or Google Play just yet, but if you're really curious, preview screenshots from the app after the break.
