FEATURE: Memoto camera logs user’s entire life, shrugs off privacy to seize the moment

AFP, STOCKHOLM

Jan Svaerdhagen, who is currently writing a book about lifelogging, agrees.

“The first question one should raise is: ‘What function is filled by taking a photo every 30 seconds?’ Who buys the product and for what purpose? Are we entering the next stage of social media where we not only log, but also share our lives 24/7 in a kind of Big Brother Light version?” Svaerdhagen said.

Soon, 4,000 of these cameras will reach their users. In the future they might develop accessories such as a waterproof case, a wide-angle lens and a Wi-Fi dock. In the meantime, the blueprint is available online for creative users to personalize their camera.
