Can you imagine to have your entire life recorded, so that you could always come back and reproduce the video/audio of a given moment in your life?
With digital storage continuous improvement in HD, and Flash memories, and with the tiny cameras available, the idea is becoming technically feasible.
We might see soon devices that you can carry and record all your day. A camera/mic integrated in our shades and bluetooth connected to your device would record all that you see an hear. The device could be similar to an iPhone or Android phone, only with larger memory to cope for the recording of a day. Alternatively with Wimax/Wifi/HSDPA connectivity the info can be uploaded, reducing the need for on-device storage.
When you are back at home at night, you would get your entire day (or simply your highlights) to download to your MyLife Data Base, either in your Home Server, or why not hosted by Google.
Google motto is to help organize all info in the world. Who better than Google to organize your MyLife Data Base, and make sure you can easily find your key moments when you want.
Ok, I know, I know… lawyers say ‘what about privacy?’ Do you need to ask permission to people you encounter and advice them you are recording them in video? Aren’t you allowed to record all the conversations you participate, without asking permission to ?
Well, meantime lawyers and politicians agree on the privacy issue, I still see this devices as very useful Personal Video-surveillance Cameras, which you could use, even if not ready to have your entire life digitalized yet.
