I’ve been working on a messaging app called unda.
I started this project with my friends in Mexico back in Dec 2012. I flew back and forth between Tokyo and Mexico City, worked with them to make a prototype. We incorporated a company in April and joined batch #6 of 500 startups’ acceleration program in May.
Now we moved to Mountain View, started working for our first round of fund raising. The app will be available on AppStore in a few days.
Here is one of the first media coverages of our project:
Could the next wave in mobile messaging be video? 500 Startups’ Unda hopes so

GPS tracking + Google Street View + Instagram
= An automated photo stream of the scenery you might have seen.
Instreetgram is an iPhone app, which keep tracking your location and taking pictures from images of Google Street View of your current location.
The app also applies various image filters to the pictures, then posts them to Tumblr or Facebook. The result is an automated Instagram-like photo stream. It is like a record of your daily life in an another world.

Neuro Turntable is a physical record player coupled with a brain sensor, which monitors the brainwave of the music listener. In order to keep listening, the listener need to maintain the concentration on the music being played. We also have iPhone app version, Neuro Turntable Mobile. These are concept models and not intended for sale. We tried to raise a problem of instant / easy music consumption embodied by iPod/iTunes music ecosystem.
Collaboration with neurowear. Exhibited at Tokyo Game Show 2012.
