UPDATE: Microsoft's SenseCam Aids Memory Recall

From the

Microsoft Research SenseCam Website:

"SenseCam is a wearable digital camera that is designed to take photographs passively, without user intervention, while it is being worn. Unlike a regular digital camera or a cameraphone, SenseCam does not have a viewfinder or a display that can be used to frame photos. Instead, it is fitted with a wide-angle (fish-eye) lens that maximizes its field-of-view. This ensures that nearly everything in the wearer’s view is captured by the camera, which is important because a regular wearable camera would likely produce many uninteresting images."

New study proves that Microsoft's sensory innovation aids memory recall

Images from Microsoft Research:

The SenseCam application has the potential to be a resource for people who have developmental delays, traumatic brain injury, severe attention deficits, and autism spectrum disorders. It would be a great tool for special educators, occupational and speech/language therapists, and rehabilitation specialists.

Recreate your whole day with a time-lapse movie comprised of involuntary images taken every 30 seconds throughout the course of your day. The guy from Momento needs one of these, and this sure would beat most other daily photo experiments I've seen (though I did like that one called "Doorknobs I touched today").
