Wearable ‘neurocam’ records scenes when it detects user interest

Wearable ‘neurocam’ records scenes when it detects user interest | Talking things | Scoop.it

Neurowear, developed the Neurocam, is an augmented iPhone camera that records emotionally significant moments. The camera is activated by the user’s brainwaves as emotions increase neuro activity. Software within the Neurocam judges emotional sensitivities on a scale from 0 to 100, 100 being the most stimulating moment.

With discriminating decision-making software, the camera only begins to record 5 second .gif files when the neuro value exceeds 60. Images are saved with a timestamp and location, so if someone ever asks you “do you remember…” you can interrupt with “yes, let’s watch.
