I usually love all gadgets. I love my iPhone, my iPad, and my Kindles. Other tech stuff is fun too. I have some remote gadgets, step-counting gadgets and kitchen gadgets. I rarely meet a gadget I don’t like.
But I don’t like this one.
This is just plain creepy.
The Narrative is a clip on camera that you wear. It automatically takes a picture every 30 seconds.
The point? To create a “narrative” of your life. All the regular moments. The things you don’t remember… remembered.
I don’t want to be on either end of this device. I don’t want all those photos of …. ???? and I sure don’t want to be talking or working with a person who is wearing this little camera. I know I’d find it highly distracting.
(I suppose there is an argument to be made for wearing it to capture candid photos of your children, or maybe at an event …. I’ll go with that. But it’s the “all day” and photographing unsuspecting people that just seems yuchy. Bye bye privacy.)
You can read more about it in this article, and view examples of the photos that this gadget takes:
If you’re interested, the Narrative sells for $279.
Just don’t visit with me if you’re wearing one.
