What do you imagine when you think about a wearable camera named MyMe? MyMe clips onto your clothing and logs images of your daily life? What if it takes the idea of the wearable camera to a whole new level? Instead of simply recording images, it uses artificial intelligence to respond to audio and visual information in real-time.
MyMe consists of a camera that clips onto your clothes and a Bluetooth earpiece for relaying information. It could potentially do things like generate profiles of people you meet at a party and instantly send them to your phone, or chart what you’ve eaten throughout the day. Moreover, it’ll deliver helpful information, and hopefully make your interactions more meaningful.
The company claims that the wearable camera has some major privacy advantages. Its camera doesn’t sit right on your face. Still, it’ll probably be awkward explaining why you’re wearing a camera on your shirt. It may be tougher to convince people that you’re not actually recording them.
Orcam clearly built on its experience with its original wearable, a smart camera device that helps the visually impaired. Amnon Shashua, its co-founder, is also the founder of Mobileye, a company that’s made a huge business with in-car cameras.
