This new camera was featured in the New Scientist. We could wear it around our neck and it will take a pic every 30 seconds.
Picture that, our every waking moment caught on camera.
Well as much as I like this digital life I'm not sure I'm keen on the idea of snapping the arse off it. Or being snapped by everyone else's camera. I mean some days I just don't have my Prada bag, or Manolo Blahnik pumps on, and don't want folk takin' mi pic.
And what the heck are we gonna do with all this accumulated imagery? Lots of folk don't even live consciously enough to experience the moment as it happens, let alone go back to look at a zillion snaps showing how we mundaned out, Monday to Sunday, Summer to Spring, most of the time.
Ya know Second Life? Well, ya know someone said "Get a First Life"? Ya get my point!
Anyway, a similar camera we can wear on a pendant around our neck will soon be launched by a UK-based firm.
The gadget was originally invented to help jog the memories of people with Alzheimer's disease. It could be useful for those suffering from that horrible condition, fair enough. But for dumb-ass consumers to create "lifelogs" that archive their entire lives? Come on.....why?
Or, is that cam really a rather fancy notebook that could be bloomin' handy?
I don't know.
Anyway, you can read more here if ya want.
Much love, Ian.
