Redwood City, CA, August 24, 2010 — HopeLab and Energy Inside today announced a collaboration to explore the use of content from Energy Inside’s Pepfly product in HopeLab product development efforts.
Pepfly, an application that uses curated Internet media to produce positive emotions, is part of Energy Inside’s project to create space in society for well-being. Built on the idea that brief experiences of positive emotion can have a powerfully beneficial effect over time, pepfly helps its users feel inspired, amazed, amused, and other positive feelings, through a library of content hand-selected for its emotional relevance and power.
