We wrote a mobile application to share experiences in a particular location. Users can takes videos that become associated with the spot where they are taken. These videos are like time capsules, or "caps", left in unique places. Others users passing by those locations can view the video when they come within range. We use Facebook and the Google Maps API to show where your friends have dropped caps, to incentivise you to visit those locations. If you want to share your experience, you can click a button to record a new video and drop it where you are for others to find.

Note: in the video, we experienced lag in the computer recording during the video playback.
