Based in Taiwan, a new mobile app called Reqvu aims to give you back the moments you wish you had. Co-founded by Tim Brown, also of Shanzai.com, Reqvu has officially launched in the Apple App Store.

Conceptually, it’s hard to grasp what ‘giving you back moments you miss but no it’s not a teleportation machine or something that splits your body in two allowing you to be in two places at once. Let’s say you are away overseas on a business trip and you are missing out on Thanksgiving dinner. Instead of waiting to see what happened after on Facebook, you use the app to tell people what you want to see in the form of pictures or videos. The request you send will be posted on their Facebook wall. For example, you request “I want to see you cut the turkey!” then whoever is there can instantly send you an image or video of them cutting the turkey. Other people can then share these experiences on Facebook and Youtube.
