Researchers have developed a tiny camera that can be clipped to clothes
or worn on a necklace, and takes a picture every 30 seconds, allowing
users to record their daily lives.
The camera, billed as "the world's

Kickstarter, the "crowd funding" website.
As well as a five

track of owners' locations and automatically log and organise pictures
via a specially-created iPhone and Android app, The Telegraph reported.
Memoto claims the battery will last two days.

moment of your life, complete with information on when you took it and
where you were," said Memoto.

representing one moment. You can tap a moment to relive it in a
stop-motion like video of all the pictures in that moment," Memoto said.
