Memory machine: Camera auto-records daily life

07 : 01 : 2013 Camera : Lifelogging : Digital Archaeology

Linköping, Sweden – The Memoto camera, available from April, is a wearable device designed to create an automatic visual archive of the user’s life.

The camera has no buttons. Instead, it automatically takes two geo-tagged photos per minute. When connected to a computer, it uploads the pictures to an organiser app, which creates a record of the user’s day without the need to pause activities to take photos.

According to its vision statement, Memoto ‘wanted to find a way to relive more of our lives in the future – and enjoy the present as it happens’. Many photos are likely to be banal images, but the visual record may help Self-Quants better understand how they use their time.

Digital Archaeology enthusiasts will appreciate having a Mac-style time machine record of their own lives. But other consumers will be more sceptical – teenagers are flocking to ‘forgetful’ messaging apps, as we reported in a recent Insight News story.
