Thngs is a digital “archive of things”, a simple tool for the preservation and structuring of data about physical things. As the founders describe it, Thngs is a “Noah’s ark for the tangible world”. Structured in a simple way that can help in cross searching, each object is photographed in many different angles, showcasing its parts and functioning, and features a complete description with details, media and files that can be collectively added and edited. The whole project revolves around the principle that things are the physical memory of humankind: since the physical preservation of all things is not possible, we can still preserve information that things contain.
