Memoto, a Swedish startup is promising to deliver a tiny wearable camera that automatically captures a photo every 30 seconds so you will never miss a moment of your life. All the photos will be stored on a cloud storage and they organized and effortlessly searchable via a mobile app.
The 5MP weather-protected camera is equipped with 8GB of onboard storage and a GPS. The button-less camera starts taking photos with geotag information and accumulates as soon as you clip it on your clothing. It knows the right orientation so all the photos will be stored in upright position no matter how you are wearing. It also knows if there is enough lighting to take the snapshots. The internal battery lasts two full days. You will plug to your computer to recharge and at the same time the photos are automatically uploaded to Memoto’s servers. There are no buttons to press. You just wear the camera, then charge it and wear it again.
