Memoto logs your life by snapping a photo every 30 seconds

on October 24, 2012 1:00 pm

Memoto is a Swedish company that has created a wearable life logging gadget and is seeking funding through a Kickstarter project. Actually they reached their $50,000 funding goal in less than 24hrs and are already past $165,000 in pledges. So what exactly is a Memoto? It’s a postage stamp sized 5MP camera that snaps an image every 30 seconds as soon as you clip it on. At the end of the day you connect Memoto to your computer via a USB cable and your photos are uploaded and organized by lighting, GPS location, time and date. A cloud database stores these photos for easy searching and sharing via an iOS or Android app. A pledge of $199 or more will be rewarded with a camera and a 1 year web service subscription. I think Memoto is interesting concept, but the fact that you have to take it off and hook it up to a computer to download the pictures is a bit of a buzz kill for me. For $200 I think it should wirelessly upload them to the cloud. I also think it would be a hassle to take it off and put it in your pocket every time you go to the restroom. ;) What do you guys think? Would you buy/wear this product?

    Perhaps it’s generational, but why would someone want to visually document every 30 seconds of their life and then put it in cyberspace where it could be accessed by the world? How is this good? Count me out.
