If you are familiar with the life logging cameras like Narrative and Autographer, then you would definitely like what is in store for you at CES this, as a the competition in this category of wearables is about to heat. The new entrant, SnapCam by iON is a wearable life logging camera.
The 1.5-inch square device clips onto bag or clothing (it’s magnetic too) and it connects to your phone via an app. The 8-megapixel camera module is capable to shoot HD (720p) videos at 30fps. The device works on taps, with one tap it will take photo, while two tap will initiate the video recording.
According to company, the battery will last about a week in a standby mode, or it can shoot two straight hours of HD video or take 5,000 photos on single charge. If photos and videos are little too passive for you, then you can go with the live streaming mode, for sharing your adventures real time as it supports Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth connectivity.
