mzillch: Flopping around on your chest, swaying and pivoting left and right constantly while walking, taking misdirected, odd angle photos that are only sharp in bright sunlight but in indoor conditions are most likely blurred? Pass.[and bypassing the necklace and using the pocket clip on the outside of a shirt will droop and shoot the ground, I bet]
These need to be smaller and mounted to glasses or a helmet;, any other mount will be problematic.
when I originally designed the Microsoft Sensecam, which the Aotographer is based on, I used the accelerometer for image stabilisation. When the camera was bouncing on the chest, no images taken. There has been over 10 years of experimenting to get the Autographer to this stage for consumers.
I designed the original version of this, Sensecam for Microsoft, in 1999. for people with memory problems and dementia. I wonder why this version is is so expensive? We always had the problem that the temperature sensor measures close to the temperature of the user (as on chest) not the ambient temperature. I wonder how this has been solved.
