~ NEW FEATURE ALERT: Multi-User Mindfiles~

Use Multi-User Mindfiles to Crowd Source the Building of Digital Biographies and Artificially Intelligent Personal Avatars

"Helping people to come together around the building of an online biography and avatar about someone they care about can be fun! Imagine bringing your favorite great grandfather or auntie back to virtual life, using family history, old photos, videos and other digital reflections for sharing with future generations."

Bruce Duncan, Managing Director, Terasem Movement Foundation.

The Multi-User Mindfile feature is our newest web tool that allows anyone with a computer and an internet connection to create a custom social network and invite their friends/family to work together in building a rich detailed online biographical profile of anyone they choose. These collaborative profiles, called Multi-User Mindfiles, allow anyone to preserve the important life history information about anyone else, eg. family, friends, descendents, or even personal heroes, for generations to come. Another feature allows users to create photo based 2.5D talking Avatars using a single digital image of a person.

With an easy on the eyes and easy-to-use interface designed by veteran web designer Brand Kurowski, Logic Branch Productions, the LifeNaut team builds on its past success and experience in creating a rich environment for LifeNaut users to pay homage to people they care about and admire via this latest feature,encouraging collaboration and social networking in the creation of online digital legacy archives.
