The Narrative Clip: Capturing Your Every Moment

The Narrative Clip is a “lifelogging” device/camera that can be clipped onto your clothes. It actually doesn’t take video. Instead, it takes a picture every 30 seconds essentially capturing all the small moments of your life. According to the article, a firmware will be released shortly that allows you to change the frequency.

It’s always on unless you set it face down, put in a pocket (or other dark place), or when it downloading/charging. You just clip it to your clothing and go about your day. Similar devices have been in production since the 80’s but were far too big and impractical for everyday use. Now, with the advances in technology, it’s become a reality. If you’d like to start lifelogging with The Narrative Clip it can be yours for $279.

First Monk Seal Encounter

Camera sliders can cost upwards of $200 bucks for a rather simple piece of equipment. Derek Mellott posted an article to Instructables with an easy DIY camera slider. He’s used $30 in materials he bought at Ikea to construct this really cool, and seemingly effective, camera slider.
