(Newser) – If you think the digital age already has too much sharing and too little privacy, you might look away now. If not, embrace Memoto, a small wearable camera designed to snap a photo every 30 seconds, then sync with apps to organize the pics into an easily accessible digital diary. Business Insider thinks it's a little "creepy," while GigaOm calls it "exciting." Either way, Memoto is going to be reality soon, because it exceeded its $50,000 funding goal on Kickstarter in a mere five hours.

The maker's premise is that people often don't realize that a moment was special until long after the fact, so wouldn't it be nice to record pretty much everything just in case? The concept is called lifelogging, and while it's not new, Memoto could be the most practical application of it so far. Expect the devices on the market next year for $279.

I want one of these so bad. I'd start a cam-log called Lawless Japan. If I had one of these today, you would have seen two trucks run red lights and a guy almost hit me because I walked in front of his parked truck in the white line walking area and he wanted to go.

I guess all those women that told me the CIA had installed transmitters in their vaginas weren't that crazy after all.

Another pointless gadget that a few million people will believe they just can't live without, & the makers will get richer, which is really the only point of the damn thing!
