Microsoft's necklace camera enters mass production

Microsoft 2

holy_calamity writes "Remember Microsoft's camera to be slung around the necks of people with Alzheimer's to help them recall where they'd been? A version will now enter mass production, thanks to a license granted to a UK firm. The camera is worn around the neck and takes an image every thirty seconds, or in response to its light sensor, accelerometer or bodyheat sensor indicating that something of interest may be happening. Until now only a few hundred had been made for research, which showed they can genuinely help people with memory problems. The new version will be marketed at Alzheimer's researchers this winter, and at consumers for "lifelogging" in 2010."

Just when you thought the social networking thing had gone as far as it can go, now people will be posting photos of what they're doing every 30 seconds of every day! I wonder if Lifelogger.com is taken....
