Life recorders: a childhood dream realised



Techcrunch is running a story in which it speculates that 'life recorders' may become ubiquitous.

These are devices that record and store (via photographs, GPS data and suchlike) every moment of one's life.

Every shade of amazing, in other words, at once.

When I was a wee boy (you remember hearing about me as a wee boy, don't you?), I actually used to imagine that, when one died, 'heaven' consisted of a big computer console (this is back in the days of Kings' Quest, natch) that offered once massive instant replay of one's whole life. One could view it as a map, on which one's lifelong travels were highlighted; one could replay key scenes from various camera angles.

THIS LIFE RECORDER DEVICE IS ANSWER TO MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS.

Privacy? Shmivacy. I WANT ONE.
