A camera that takes pictures of your life and then puts them online is being heralded as a great way to capture fleeting moments.
The postage stamp-sized Memoto camera, which clips to your clothes and takes pictures every 30 seconds, was launched by a Swedish tech start-up, who claim it will give users the chance to rediscover cover photos they never even knew were taken.

It has a five-megapixel camera, a GPS unit that geotags each snap, and a battery that runs for about two days before it needs charging. However, it has no buttons.
Makers promise that pictures uploaded to their servers will be encrypted and visible only to the user. Photos can then be searched and shared through the company’s web service.
“As long as you wear the camera, it is constantly taking pictures,” Memoto says on its website.
“It takes two geotagged photos a minute with recorded orientation so that the app can show them upright no matter how you are wearing the camera.”
“And it’s weather protected, so you don’t have to worry about it in inclement weather.”
The Memoto is the latest example of quirky, camera-related technology. Why not come up with your own idea?
