Amnesia? Alzheimer’s? Memory Loss? Bad hangover? Suffer no more once you hang this ViCon Motion Systems built camera around your neck.
Originally an initiative by Mircosoft with the help of university researchers, the Sensecam is a mini-recorder meant to help people suffering from short term memory loss. Now that the technology has become market ready, production has been licensed to ViCon Motion, who will build a multitude of these 94gram gadgets that have 2GB of memory.
Renamed the ViCon Revue, the wide angle lens on the automatic recorder takes three photos every minute which is then transferred to a PC with the requisite software via mini-USB. Though the target market for this gadget are the elderly, we imagine the ViCon Revue becoming a must-have accessory for narcissists of every stripe—you know, the kind of people who post nonstop about their mundane existence on Twitter?
Beyond narcissists, the ViCon Revue also appears doomed to become the tool of an introspective artist who wants to do Andy Warhol one better by recording several years of their life on this thing and making a movie from it.
Last, the ViCon Revue is also great for parties. If you wake up the next morning clueless as to what exactly transpired the night before, your ViCon Revue was taking pictures the whole time.
The ViCon Revue sells for a hefty $775.
