why box?

It is not public – but can be anonymous!

There are several, not to say many, web\e-mail driven similar solutions where you can send a future dated e-mails. They are interesting too. DatedBox is different in many ways:

  • Your content is not shared with any third party. You can make your DatedBox and burn it on DVD and do not have to share with any web server ether rely on their existence. Of course you can put it in your mailbox or calendar, but you do not have to! does not store or access your box content in any ways.
  • It is not text only messages, your can pack huge files (so far up to 2G files in alpha version). Make videos, photos, audio, make visual or sound memories! There are much more then text.
  • DatedBox is not capsule! It is fun box! Key fun difference - you can make “too early” messages, they are fun, try it! You can quickly add things like: “Hey fella, you have to wait!”, “My darling... I know you want to get it earlier. But...”, “Hmmmm nice try! “ (no content restrictions, really). Again add photos, videos, make it live! It is not a scientific research of future .... something. It is fun!!!
  • One more thing - death. Message "after death",  "wills" and so on.... well, we do not have any interest in anyones deaths ;) DatedBox is not designed for any of those purposes, it is for fun!
