Memoto is not a camera like any other: you cannot control it, it has no button to shoot. It takes automatic photos every 30 seconds from the position in which you system it (it is equipped with a clip to fix it on a jacket, on a bike, wherever you want) and creates a sort of "photographic memory" that can be shared and equipped with its own search engine .
It is the first step towards the digitization of our life experiences.
It is unlikely that all the images taken out of Memoto make us look good on Instagram: often we will have boring moments, for a third of our existence we will lie in an unconscious bed for a robust repairing sleep or for a few short hours of rest. However, each image will be saved and organized by date, time, place (the camera is equipped with GPS).
To be a concept, he has quite clear ideas: even a starting price, around € 220, which makes the idea of having a 'visual diary' of our life less absurd, and a fee for storing the photos (two photos per minute make ... uhm .. .120 photos per hour. 2880 photos per day. One million and 51.000 photos a year. Shivers).
You can find out more on the Memoto page that you find here: Kickstarter.
On the popular crowdfunding service, the little spy has already collected a lot of subscriptions and money: how much this world wants to leave a tangible sign of her presence. I hope that all of your value is immortalized in the photos, and remember not to pick your nose.
