Memoto : never forget a moment of your life

Memoto : never forget a moment of your life | Technological innovations | Scoop.it

A concept for a camera that takes 2 pictures a minutes and that you are supposed to place on your shirt. The idea is that you have a way to keep a visual reminder of your day. This is a great thing (as long as you don't forget to take it off in the bathroom) since you never know if a day is going to be special, and wit this, no more "I wish I had a camera with me". But, on the other hand, I don't really like the idea that if I did something stupid, a dozen of perfect strangers could have pictures of it. Having a picture of myself looking stupid going viral on the internet ? No, thanks.

Electrolux ICE – Light Projector and Recipe Base by Julen Pejenaute » Yanko Design | Technological innovations | Scoop.it

"ICE is the mix of a lamp, mood lighting and recipe database that can assist in making your cooking and dining experience even more delightful."

I especially like the way it can suggest recipes depending on what ingredients you have. It's a gadget, but at least it can make cooking more fun.
