Pi Zero-Powered ‘Augenblick’ Wearable Camera Knows When You Blink, Takes Photos | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Rad project from some University of Bremen students – the full project is detailed in a 41-page German-language PDF (link here) or you can get an English summary of the project thanks to our friends here at Hackster.io.

Ever wonder what you’re missing when you blink? It turns out it could be a lot as it has been estimated we lose six seconds of information every minute just by blinking. This means if we sit through a 2 ½-hour movie, we will have missed 15 minutes of that film (longer if it’s Star Wars), according to University of Tokyo researchers. The good news is, we no longer have to miss those moments, thanks to some students from the University of Bremen in Germany, who have designed a wearable camera that takes pictures when we blink.
