A Purse for the Photo Addict #WearableWednesday

PicPurseLulu Guinness has a new purse that bids farewell to the selfie — it takes its own pictures according to Handbag.com. The purse is equipped with an Autographer automatic camera, which will capture up to 2,000 snaps a day. So, now you can cover yourself better than any city’s surveillance system. The camera features sensors to choose best conditions, and even has a GPS locator. So, if you want a documentary, you have the perfect purse to make it happen.

The British designer said: “I’ve always tried to push boundaries and looked to think outside the box with my designs. I have been following the growing interest in wearable technology within the fashion industry, so am excited to partner with Autographer and take our first steps to merge the two with a touch of style and humour.”

Although more refreshing than another wristband, it does remind us that wearables are trending to be narcissistic. It seems like the next purse that will be needed will be the “Edit-her”. But seriously, with the interest in technology that documents, it seems like the next reaction will be systems for the content. Whether that becomes a new timeline for Facebook, a slice of life television show, or a web book to share with others, there are going to have to be more outlets for all of this information.

While we can’t solve all of life’s issues here at Adafruit, we can help with your camera dreams. You can make a snappy purse on the cheap with an Arduino, micro SD card breakout board and one of our TTL Serial Camera Modules. Get ready to get your own motion activated life journal.
