A Clip-On Click

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

A wear­able cam­era is noth­ing new. It is easy to get hold of spy cam­eras that snoop around from in­side your pocket or a but­ton hole. But the new wear­able cam­eras are more about chron­i­cling your life and less about spy­ing. The most pop­u­lar chron­i­cler of our times is the GoPro se­ries of cam­eras that have gone every­where from the depths of the Pa­cific Ocean to the dizzy­ing heights of the Hi­malayas. But GoPros are gi­ants in com­par­i­son to the new wear­able cam­eras that at­tempt to log our lives like never be­fore. The broochlike clip-ons from Me­moto, for in­stance, cap­ture a pic­ture ev­ery 30 sec­onds so that you don't miss out on any mo­ment in your life. Then there is the Au­to­g­ra­pher from UKbased OMG Life which claims to be the first in­tel­li­gent cam­era that can “en­able spon­ta­neous, hands­free im­age cap­ture”. This cam­era has a unique 136-de­gree eye view lens that clicks im­ages that look like they have been shot us­ing a fish-eye lens. It also has five sen­sors that de­cide when to click a pic­ture and add this data along with the im­age. An­other in­ter­est­ing de­vice is the Loox­cie HD which livestreams 720p video from atop your ears us­ing the Wi-Fi on through an app on the phone.
