As our memories grow, our photo albums do too. We take photos almost every single day to preserve memories of all sorts. From camping trips to weddings, our photo albums are stocked full of visual recordings that remind us of time spent with friends and connecting to nature.
While taking photos has never been more convenient, our photo albums are nightmares to scroll through and locate specific photos we’d like to look back on. PIC, a new way of organizing photos, is a physical and digital photo organizer designed by a team of designers for Samsung Design Membership.
Broken down into three steps, PIC helps users organize all of their memories and their corresponding photos through a guided step-by-step process. Physically, PIC appears like an external hard drive, with a translucent, dual-toned body that looks right at home on the coffee table or windowsill. Comprised of two parts, the round remote is PIC’s main controller.
Moving onto the organization scheme developed by the team of designers, PIC first asks users to delete unwanted photographs. Using the round clicker, users can project their photo albums on any external projector to enlargen their photos and determine which photos they’d like to keep with ease. On both sides of the PIC remote, a circular icon represents keeping the photo in question, while a dashed line can be clicked when the user would like to delete a photo.
From there, the PIC designers developed the highlight stage. During the highlight stage, users categorize the photos they’ve kept by order of preference. Based on a system of digital stickers, users can apply numerous stickers to the photos they like the best. For their least favorite photos, users need not apply any stickers.
Finally, during the cover stage, users can choose a cover image for the photo album that’s most indicative of the memory formed by the photo album. Meaning, if one photo triggers your memory of other photographs taken in the same place or at the same time, then that photo will represent the entire album, leading you to all of the photos you decided to keep during the first organizational stage.
The remote clicker makes it easier than ever to sort through your photo albums.
Defined by a translucent case and minimalist design, PIC looks right at home in any modern living room.
