What’s a ‘Play’ you might ask? Well it’s a neat little gadget from a company called Native Union that replaces the old pen and paper memo pad. It features an LCD display, ,microphone, speaker and camera, everything you need to leave a message for your loved ones. You could record your grocery list, remind your kids to take out the garbage or leave a little love not for your significant other. It’s much more personal than pen and paper I think. The play has a magnetic back so you can stick it on your fridge so it’s always ready to go, and with just three buttons anyone in your family should be able to easily use it.  It will be available in late September for $59.99 and you can get it in green, pink, blue, purple, red, white and black.

The Play video memo pad can store three minutes of video in one full-length message or in multiple, shorter messages at one time. Equipped with a magnetized back, Play can be mounted to a refrigerator or any metallic surface, and a simple three-button design makes it easy for users of all ages to record and view a message. The device, which will be available at the end of September for $59.99, comes in an array of high-gloss colors including green, pink, blue, purple, red, white and black.

"The Play video memo pad brings a truly playful element into everyday life at home," said John Brunner, managing director, Native Union. "It’s a lot more fun to leave a to-do list for your kids or a grocery list for your spouse with video, but more than that, we hope that Play will encourage kids and adults alike to leave funny, heartfelt, or loving messages for each other more often. We want Play to become the first thing that people go to each day to see what fun new messages might be waiting for them."
