Record your life with tiny auto camera
If our eyes are the natural cameras of our lives, with each blink capturing a moment then this new camera is the technical replication.
Memoto, a Swedish company, had the goal of giving everyone a true photographic memory, by introducing an intelligent micro-device that captures every moment of your life in photo keyframes. These spontaneous shots can be searched, shared and revisited at any time using Memoto’s web service and mobile application.
“Imagine if you could capture and re-live every memorable moment of your life,” said Martin Källström, CEO of Memoto. “With Memoto, you can effortlessly travel back in time to that moment when you met the love of your life, the day your daughter took her first step, or that night you laughed the night away with friends.”
At about the size of a postage stamp, the Memoto camera can be integrated into a person’s daily life. The camera connects to your clothing with a small stainless steel clip, subtly capturing every special moment of your life as it’s happening. Its advanced software organises the photos to work as a photographic memory, boasting that they can be accessed at any time, even after many years.
World-renowned computer scientist and author Gordon Bell said, “A small, wearable geo-aware camera with pictures going to the cloud is just what we need for life-logging events.”
The Memoto camera opens up a world of possibilities, giving everyone the ability to remember and look back on incredible moments for years to come. “Our goal is to establish Memoto as the ultimate way to document meaningful moments in your own life history,” said Källström. “The Memoto device records your life as it unfolds, capturing spontaneous moments that you never could have caught with a traditional camera.”
Once connected to a user’s computer, the Memoto camera will automatically begin uploading the photos taken to the Memoto Web Service. This web service, with accompanying apps for iPhone and Android, works very much like your own backup memory and catalogues the pictures (moments) by time, date, place and even lighting conditions that can be easily searched and shared.
Additional features of the Memoto camera include:
•Automatic photo capture every 30 seconds
•5 megapixel resolution images
•Log of GPS positions and timestamps
•Built-in rechargeable battery which is said to last up to two days
•LED battery life indicator
•Micro-USB port for charging and connecting to computer
•Built-in accelerometer is said to ensure that pictures are correctly oriented regardless of how it’s worn
Estimated availability for the Memoto camera is early 2013. The unit will be offered in Graphite grey, Arctic white and Memoto orange colors for $279. Starting from today, anyone can support Memoto in getting the camera into production through Kickstarter.com, where backers of $199 or more are rewarded with a camera and one year Web Service subscription. Memoto is one of the first hardware projects conforming to the new guidelines of Kickstarter.
