LifeLogger wearable camera hits kickstarter

LifeLogger wearable camera hits kickstarterKickstarter is one of the best ways to fund an interesting startup and LifeLogger Techologies, the Florida based startup is looking to raise money to develop and market LifeLogger, a device which will capture each and every precious moment in a user’s life.

Over the past couple of years, there have been many products which capture candid pictures of a user’s everyday moments, like Narrative clip, but many a times; these cameras do not get the perfect shot. LifeLogger aims to solve this problem by allowing the person to wear the camera on their head. This helps the device take perfect shots as it captures everything that comes under the user’s point of view.

Google Glass is one such life logger but with plenty of additional features. Glass allows users to take videos and pictures directly from its inbuilt camera and given that it’s directly in front of the users eyes, Glass can capture images of anything that the user is looking at with ease.

Lifelogger is looking to do the same thing, but has a very unique design, which the company claims will allow users to get the perfect shot at the right moment. According to the company, the design has undergone extensive revision to suit the needs of the user. And after years of research, the company has finally come up with a handy and unique design.

The final product looks like a headpiece and will stay in its place with a strap that goes behind the neck of the user. On first glance, it resembles a Bluetooth headset, with two buttons on top along with a camera on the front.

The camera is of 5MP and is capable of recording 720p videos at 30 fps. For connectivity, the device comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. There are a number of sensors too like gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer and the device comes with a 32GB MicroSD card for storage. The memory card is removable and if the need arises, users can replace the 32GB card with a 64GB one. It comes with a 400 mAh battery, however the battery life of the device has not been revealed.

The kickstarter campaign is already underway and the company has managed to raise around $40,000 with the help of 234 backers. The goal is to reach the $150,000 mark and with 47 days to go, it doesn’t look that far. Check out their kickstarter page for more information.
