Voyager Golden Record Inspires a Video Montage Book

“Hello World” Book Creates Video Time Capsule of Earth

“Today, there are billions of videos stored on the Internet. Those videos capture the thoughts, ideas, emotions, beliefs, and memories of mankind. The Internet is like a global brain that stores the collective consciousness of humanity.”

When NASA launched Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 in 1977, it mounted a Golden Record on each spacecraft; the Golden Record was a time capsule containing images and sounds from the Earth. NASA said that if extraterrestrials ever discover a Voyager spacecraft, they could play the Golden Record to learn about us.

This year will be the 40th anniversaries of the launching of the two Voyager spacecrafts on Aug. 20th and Sept. 5th. A new book, “Hello World” (published by PlayVM, LLC, $19.99), was inspired by the Golden Record and is being created to take a look at the current state of our planet. It is a traditional print book, enhanced with links to videos that can be watched on any device with access to YouTube.

The book shares “video montages” which are collections of videos that are arranged to feel like you are watching a movie.

Ken Katuin, founder of PlayVM, watched more than 40,000 videos while doing research for this book. The best videos from around the world were used to create the montages. The book has over 100 montages and the various montages show the creative accomplishments of more than a billion people from every country on Earth.

The video montages also cover a variety of topics such as the environment, narcissism, prejudice, politics, religion, war, peace, society, pop culture, empathy, love, and more. “Hello World” will help people see and understand the world in new ways. This book will inform, entertain, challenge and inspire people to come together and change the world.

Here is a video that explains how the book works:

The Internet is like a global brain that stores the collective consciousness of humanity. ‘Hello World’ harnesses the power of our global brain.”
