Memoto is working on creating a life-logging camera that will allow users to automatically capture moments as they are happening. Images will automatically upload to a Memoto cloud service and will be organized by a myriad of labels, making it easy for users to search through to find a specific moment. Memoto’s goal is to give everyone a photographic memory, so that they can relive unexpected moments without having to get a traditional camera out.
Memoto’s CEO, Martin Kallstrom says, “The Memoto device records your life as it unfolds, capturing spontaneous moments that you never could have caught with a traditional camera.” The camera will be about the size of a postage stamp and will have a small metal clip to attach to the user’s clothing. It will capture 5 MP images every 30 seconds, and will include GPS positions, timestamps, and will also have a built-in accelerometer to adjust photos for the correct orientation. Each camera will feature 8GB of permanent flash memory, and a battery life estimate for 2 days worth of pictures.
Currently the camera is still gaining funding through Kickstarter, but estimated availability is early 2013 and it will cost $279. Users who fund the project early can snag a promised Memoto unit for just $199, with shipments to start in early February. That buy-in also nets you a year of storage for your pictures at Memoto’s website, as well as access to Memoto software that will let you scan through many days’ worth of pictures and let you find the specific moments you’re looking for.
