Grandkids can create thank-you e-cards in their own voice for out-of-town grandparents to enjoy again and again. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination! According to co-creator Barry Crutchfield, “Getting our special moments on camera, like when my 6 year old rode his big boy bike for the first time, and capturing the exhilaration in his voice describing the moment – that’s what inspired us to create pixntell. Because 45 seconds is gone in the blink of an eye, but the pixntell memory is forever.”
