Microsoft Garage experiments have always managed to get our attention, the latest one is called Thinga.Me. The Garage project converts physical things into digital eventually allowing one to archive the same. As of now, the Thinga.me is available via an invite-only beta.
Microsoft’s experimental project wing Garage has announced a new iOS app that turns physical collections into digital archives. The app, called Thinga.Me, is currently in an invite-only beta, with no set release date in sight.
The new app, developed by Microsoft Garage, one of the company’s more experimental arms is itself an experiment. The idea behind it is to let users “share things, not photos” but there’s every chance Thinga.me could grow into something else entirely if enough people start playing with it.
It’s a very interesting attempt to kind of creating a digital catalogue of real-world objects and sharing and presenting to the virtual world. If you want to share your vintage toy collection, kid’s artwork or any of your object collections, just take photos. Thinga.me will cut out the backgrounds and can be put in a themed gallery. Better the photo you take of your item, the better results you’ll get in cutting it out. It will look more like a real object rather than just a picture. Once you have captured and cut out items, one can add them to a collection. One can set up lots of theme properties, like the layout and the look. Microsoft will be adding more themes in the future.
