Wear a Memoto and Record Your Life

Let’s face it. Lots of people these days are obsessed with documenting every moment of their lives. They send out a constant stream of tweets telling their followers what they are up to, and then take pictures of every single meal to put on Instagram. Couple this with people who like to, for example, take constant videos or still images of their gardens, wrap it all up into the wearable technology trend, and you get Memoto.

Memoto is a wearable camera that will record your every waking moment. It takes a constant stream of 5-megapixel pictures (once every two seconds), collecting about 2,000 images over the course of a day. When you plug the device in for recharging, it uploads the images of your entire day to the cloud and voila! You have documented your entire life in pictures.

The device itself holds only two days worth of pictures, and currently it costs about $280 a month for the online storage. But people seem excited. The company raised more than $550,000 in a Kickstarter campaign, and fans of the device are eager to get their hands on it. The initial shipment of Memotos has been delayed about two months due to a manufacturer’s error, but the company is in possession of several prototypes.

It remains to be seen if this trend catches on as well as microblogging did. After all, how many pics of my computer screen or my bathroom sink do I really need? Still, in an era when people have bigger egos than ever, it is sure to find a niche.
