Memoto Wearable Automatic Camera Launched - Memoto is set to launch a wearable automatic camera to capture your daily experiences.
“Imagine if you could capture and re-live every memorable moment of your life” said Martin Källström, CEO of Memoto. “With Memoto, you can effortlessly travel back in time to that moment when you met the love of your life, the day your daughter took her first step, or that night you laughed the night away with friends.”
At about the size of a postage stamp, the Memoto camera can be easily integrated into your daily life. The camera connects to your clothing with a small stainless steel metal clip, subtly capturing every special moment of your life as it's happening -- before you even realize how special it is. Its advanced software organizes the photos to work as a photographic memory that can be accessed at any time, even after many years, without the user ever feeling overwhelmed or disorganized.
Once connected to a user’s computer, the Memoto camera will automatically begin uploading the photos taken to the Memoto Web Service. This web service with accompanying apps for iPhone and Android works very much like your own backup memory and catalogs the pictures (moments) by time, date, place and even lighting conditions that can be easily searched and shared.
- Automatic photo capture every 30 seconds
- 5 megapixel resolution images
- Log of GPS positions and timestamps
- Built-in rechargeable battery which lasts up to two days

Estimated availability for the Memoto camera is early 2013. The unit will be offered in Graphite grey, Arctic white and Memoto orange colors for $279. Memoto is currently on kickstarter, which helps new and innovative companies fund their ideas. For more information on Memoto, visit the Memoto website.
