Orginally developed by Microsoft research as ‘SenseCam’ to be slung around the necks of people with Alzheimer's to help them recall where they'd been? A version of this camera device’ll now be mass-produced by a UK firm, Vicon. Its worn around the neck and takes an image every thirty seconds, or in response to its light sensor, accelerometer, or body-heat sensor indicating that something of interest may be happening. It can fit 30,000 images onto its 1-gigabyte memory. Vicon's version called “ViconRevue” will retail for £500 (about $820) and will also be marketed to researchers at first; it will go on sale in the next few months. The new version will be marketed to Alzheimer's researchers this winter, and to consumers for 'lifelogging' beginning in 2010, noted.
