Autographer – Wearable Camera: Start-up Idea
Wearable camera could become the next festival must-have
By Michelle Hammond
A camera that decides by itself when to take a shot is set to be the new music festival or special event must-have.
The Autographer can be worn around the neck, clipped to clothing or placed in a particular vantage point. It was developed as a memory aid for people with dementia.
Using five built-in sensors and software to choose its moment with no intervention from the user, up to 2,000 high-resolution images a day can be combined in a sequence to create a visual record.
Autographer was developed by OMG Life, the subsidiary of Oxford Metrics Group (OMG).
The company, based in Oxford, UK, is the world’s largest supplier of precision motion-tracking systems for films, computer games and broadcast television productions.
Camera-related technology continues to flood the market, suggesting there is a huge demand for new ideas. Can you think of any?
