I just pre ordered Memoto‘s life logging camera. This thing takes a snapshot every 30 seconds and stores it on their cloud servers. The software “intelligently” categorizes the photos into events for you. I’ve been interested in the automatic capture of memories, or lifelogging, for some time. I’ve hesitated jumping in before because of the time it takes to hack something like this on your own. The technical hurdles aren’t that great, but still takes time. With this product they seem to have made the experience as painless as possible, just a matter of clipping on the camera.
I can’t wait to test it out, wondering how many of the photos are going to be junk. Probably most of them. But for keeping a record for the future this seems like a good product. Now all I have to do is make sure I live an interesting life so I don’t look back in a few years at thousands of photos of me staring at the ceiling.
