A virtual story-sharing platform for recreational bird watchers, Lifelist uses precise data captured by birders to signify birds, encourage exploration, and connect birders. Lifelist is a product system comprised of smart binoculars and an associated website, which work together to seamlessly connect the act of birding with the act of keeping records. Lifelist's binoculars capture enough real time information to identify individual birds, making birds themselves the carriers of any associated meaning. The accompanying website allows birders to keep a virtual record of all their sightings, share their unique experiences,  and follow the birds in their lifelist wherever they go next.

Lifelist is the HighTech portion of a two-part LowTech | HighTech project. Related images and information about the LowTech portion can be found here.
