Update on June 25, 2014: Since our initial post, Lifelogger has made some improvements to the design. Now, instead of 720p, the wearable camera can handle Full HD 1080p capture. The company also found ways to make the device smaller and lighter, and extend the battery life.

“While we were developing in 2013-14 there were some new and smaller chipsets announced (like Ambarella A7LW – specifically made for wearable cams) so we are currently considering redoing the PCB layout and using the Ambarella A7LW which will save space and increase battery life,” the company wrote on its Kickstarter page.

As the interest for amateur videography continues to grow, so does the interest in breaking out of the traditional role behind the camera and capturing footage from the point-of-view of the person recording it. Over the past few years, we’ve seen various types of wearable cameras such as the MeCam, Narrative Clip, and Autographer, and now the Lifelogger Camera can be added to that list. 

Lifelogger is a fully hands-free, 5-megapixel camera capable of recording up to eight hours of 1080p high-definition video and streaming it in real-time via Wi-Fi. Lifelogger offers users a unique take on capturing life events by incorporating video, voice, text, and facial recognition into the camera, to fully immerse the user and others into a POV experience.

The camera is attached to a small mount that wraps around your neck and rests snugly behind your ears – just imagine putting on a sleek pair of sunglasses backward. The lightweight, compact camera won’t impede any of your natural movement, and you’ll be able to control it using a downloaded app for your Android or iOS mobile devices.

The LifeLogger app allows users to operate the camera, manage existing videos, manually or automatically upload new videos, and sign in to a personal cloud account that wirelessly stores your content. You’ll also be able to check the camera’s battery and memory status, and turn live streaming on or off.

Other features of the Lifelogger Camera include:

  • 90-degree fixed lens
  • Photo burst mode, up to 10 per second
  • Time-lapse recording, up to one photo every 60 seconds
  • Photo snapshot mode
  • 32GB SD card of storage

Lifelogger was created more than a year ago by a Florida-based startup company of the same name. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign May 13 with a goal of $150,000 and a cutoff date of July 1. According to Lifelogger, those who make pledges on Kickstarter now will receive up to three months of 25GB cloud storage for free; the company has not stated how much cloud storage will cost moving forward. If successfully funded, Lifelogger estimates the camera will be available by the end of 2014.

[UPDATE: In a message posted on social media on Monday morning, Princess Kate said that she herself edited the image, and apologized for the fuss that the picture had caused. “Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing," she wrote, adding, "I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused."]

Major press agencies have pulled a photo of the U.K.’s Princess of Wales and her children amid concerns that it has been digitally manipulated.

Help NASA in its quest to learn more about our sun
Scientists have used the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter’s Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) in a new mode of operation to record part of the Sun’s atmosphere that has been almost impossible to image until now. By covering the Sun’s bright disc with an ‘occulter’ inside the instrument, EUI can detect the million-times fainter ultraviolet light coming from the surrounding corona.
