Here’s an interesting lifelogging camera project currently on Kickstarter that combines GPS, timestamping, and some cloud storage/organizing tools to take care of much of the admin-side of such an effort automatically: Memoto. If you have tracked other life logging projects over the years, you’ll be surprised at the minimalist footprint compared to all the heavy gear typically necessary to “do this right.”
Have you thought about how much of life goes missing from your memories? Many fantastic and special moments become blurred together after a while and it feels like life just rushes by, too fast for us to grasp.
We at Memoto wanted to find a way to relive more of our lives in the future – and enjoy the present as it happens.
Of course I’d also be curious about a Raspberry Pi lifelogger that one might hang from a gold chain…but that’s just me.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
