HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

Some­times, the act of doc­u­ment­ing the fam­ily’s key child­hood mo­ments can be dif­fi­cult, and for a mul­ti­tude of rea­sons. Some­times, it’s be­cause you’ve for­got­ten your cam­era or it ran out of bat­tery. Other times, you have too many videos, and you’re not re­ally sure how best to edit and com­bine them to­gether to form a co­he­sive story.

Well, one man set out to change the way we cap­ture spe­cial mo­ments. Ul­ti­mately, his quest led him to cre­ate the Ben­jamin But­ton. Named af­ter the tit­u­lar char­ac­ter in F. Scott Fitzger­ald’s short story and David Fincher’s film, Ben­jamin But­ton is a kid­friendly HD video cam­era that’s ca­pa­ble of cap­tur­ing, culling, and edit­ing video. Specif­i­cally, it be­gins to record the minute you clip it to any ar­ti­cle of cloth­ing (for up to three hours), and when you plug it in to recharge, that’s when it be­gins to au­to­mat­i­cally process and edit the video through a com­bi­na­tion of face de­tec­tion, sound recog­ni­tion, and hu­man ac­tiv­ity.

"We wanted to cre­ate a prod­uct that made it pos­si­ble for par­ents to be free to fo­cus on en­joy­ing time to­gether with their child, rather than op­er­at­ing a cam­era. That's ex­actly what Ben­jamin But­ton does! Our long-term goal is to cre­ate an ecosys­tem around fam­ily mem­o­ries and cre­ate a rev­o­lu­tion in par­ent­ing by al­low­ing par­ents and their kids to spend time to­gether and cap­ture and keep mem­o­ries for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­joy,” Do­minik Or­fanus, CEO of Ben­jamin But­ton, said about the de­vice.
