    • What's the point? You would have thousands of images to look back at every day.

    • this is really excessive and strange, but a very interesting concept

    • I agree. Why does everything have to be recorded for everyone to see all the god damn time? Geotagging baffles me enough, even instagram to an extent but making my day to day life an online exhibition just seems abstruse.

    • great, more snapshots of people's food/'quirky' cups of hot chocolate with heart-shaped marshmallows. "Just too cute."

    • This reminds me of Charlie Brooker's 'Black Mirror', The Entire History of You. No?

    • Waste of space, maybe could be useful for some trip timelapses, but it doesn't look like wide angle camera so it won't work out.

    • A few years ago I went to a press day at Microsoft's research labs, they had a camera just like this designed to help those suffering from dementia, the idea being that at the end of the day they have a rapid recap using the photos, and it would strengthen their memory skills and reinforce their experiences. Their test stats looked very promising. For that this is brilliant, for the consumer market, really very unnecessary.

    • What about the light of the camera? There's no flash, I think pictures will be blurry and/or dark.

    • I am so surprised at all the mean comments. What a lot of sad people! I think its a wonderful idea, lots of fun, and I will be buying one. Brilliant for holidays or days out, even better for days out with the grandchildren. Interesting for when I'm making something at the sewing machine. Endless possibilities. And I can't see how it will affect privacy any more than an ordinary camera or video camera would.
