Lifelogger wants to record your life

14

Wearable devices are the flavor of the season and the digital camera sector is no exception. A little while ago we reviewed the Autographer and now the Lifelogger, which is currently trying to get funded via a Kickstarter project, offers a similar concept.

The idea is to record important (and less important) life events from your point of view with the Lifelogger attached to your ear. It's similar to how you would wear a bluetooth headset. In terms of hardware, the Lifelogger offers a 5MP camera, 128MB of storage, a microSD slot, Wi-Fi and a GPS receiver for geotagging.

Lifelogger users might be mistaken for limo drivers.  
On the plus side, your family life will be recorded for posterity.

You can stream the recorded footage to your phone via Wi-Fi and upload to the Lifelogger cloud server where the videos can have electronic video stabilization, face and voice detection, OCR and geomapping applied. Alternatively you can connect the Lifelogger to your computer via USB and download the files for manual editing. There are also iOS and Android apps for video management. 

If you think your life is interesting enough to make logging worthwhile, on the Lifelogger Kickstarter page you can reserve a device for $169. Other backing options start from as little as $1. Shipping is planned for late 2014. Watch the video below for more information.

Pathetic effort to make a cheap rip-off of Google Glass.

And who in their right mind would want to watch hours and hours of unedited wobbly recordings of someone's banal life?

I wonder of the effects on the brain long term. I would imagine it could be an issue having a WiFi and BT device so close for 8 hours.

Privacy intrusion alert!

If you wear such devices don't be surprised if people respond in anger to you. Unless you are working for the police, nobody should be wearing such intrusive devices that invade the private space of other people..

I really don't think the technology companies get it when people like me think, "I don't want to wear something that is obvious."

Integrate it into something else that already exists so that I don't walk around looking like a cyborg.

To those who like to appear as cyborgs, well, I guess this and Google Glass are your thing.

It's not as if I want to secretly film anyone (I'm not a jerk), but if I want to film my own experience (riding a roller coaster, skateboarding, etc.) I don't want a goofy device on my head that beckons a slap from everyone else.

I'm going to record my life and then when I die I'll play it back for eternity.

Everyone try so sell anything "on behalf of friends and family". Diverse manufacturers use this type of sensitization to sell something. It seems that still works for many people. From technology to a plastic kitchen utensil. eh
