As wearable gadgets are becoming more and more popular nowadays, Lifelogger Technologies believes that its wearable camera, called LifeLogger, has the edge over other wearable camcorders, so a promising Kickstarter project has been born.
The next big thing in technology is said to consist of wearable devices. Whether it is a smartwatch or a Google Glass-like heads-up display with internet access, people all around the globe tend to get very excited when they see such gadgets.
Although there are plenty of options available on the market, there is always room for improvement. It seems like Lifelogger Technologies has come up with a small wearable gadget that can log someone’s life from his or her point of view.
The latest wearable camera is called LifeLogger and it consists of a means to capture the most precious moments of your day from your point of view. It can be attached to your head at your eye level in order to serve as your personal “life-logger”.
LifeLogger is an exciting wearable camera that needs your help on Kickstarter
Getting funding these days is both tough and easy. This cliché is possible thanks to crowd-funding platforms, such as Kickstarter. Tough because there are many cool projects on these sites and easy because anybody can contribute. However, Kickstarter is the place where you can help LifeLogger come to life.
At the time of writing this article, more than $36,000 has been pledged to the cause. However, the total goal has been set at $150,000.
This is all part of a daring plan, but the project can be funded until July 1, 2014, meaning that there is plenty of time for potential buyers to secure a life-logging wearable camera and for its creators to reach their goals.
Early backers can purchase a LifeLogger for only $169. This is a pretty small amount, so it could help the company raise the required funding in the already-designated period of time.
This may sound like marketing talk, so here is what this wearable camera offers for as low as $169.
LifeLogger captures 5MP photos & 720p videos and features WiFi & live-streaming support
The LifeLogger has a rather interesting specifications list. It features a 5-megapixel image sensor that shoots JPEG photos and MP4 photos at 1280 x 720 resolution with a frame rate of 30fps.
The camera is electronically stabilized and comes with a face-recognition algorithm. This way, LifeLogger will attempt to focus on a person’s face, while preventing blur from appearing in the final photos.
Photos and videos are stored on a microSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot of up to 64GB. The good thing is that the company will supply a 32GB microSD card and, if you think that it is enough, then you will not have to make any other purchases.
LifeLogger does not have a display. However, it can connect to an Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth and WiFi. When using the latter connection, the wearable camera can stream videos over the web, so others can see what you are seeing in real-time.
What else LifeLogger provides? And when is it scheduled to reach your home?
An interesting shooting mode is called time-lapse which captures a photo per minute. A burst mode is available, too, that allows the users to shoot 10fps, making sure that they will get the photo they need.
Moreover, the device has built-in GPS, so photos and videos can be organized depending on location. Last but not least, the price includes three months of free 25GB cloud storage and content processing. Pay more and you get more storage for a more extended period of time.
Shipping will begin in December 2014 if everything goes according to plan. For more information we invite you to check out this project on Kickstarter.
