Have you thought about how much of life goes missing from your memories? Many fantastic and special moments become blurred together after a while and it feels like life just rushes by, too fast for us to grasp.
The team at Narrative wanted to find a way to relive more of our lives in the future - and enjoy the present as it happens.
Our search for the ultimate lifelogging device started with gathering people from all walks of life and asking them about their use of pictures and photographing. We let them try our very early prototypes of the camera and listened to their spontaneous thoughts about it. Then, we grouped their answers according to their expectations and needs:
"I wish I had more pictures to look back on and remember who I was with and where I've been." Falko, 34
"If I had the opportunity to relive a moment, I would like to see when my parents were young, specifically a situation I've heard about not playing out the way they've told me..." Marcus, 27
"I think the camera would capture things from a different perspective and that it wouldn't be as much of a re-experience as a completely new one." Elias, 26
"Coming home from a trip, I often find myself with pictures I could just have googled. I feel I often miss (documenting) the nice, small moments in ordinary life. I'd rather have one picture of that nice alley we passed in Paris, than five of the Eiffel Tower." Ulrika, 25
"I rarely take photographs in social situations because it would disrupt the interaction I'm having." Amelie, 25
"Maybe it would be a wake-up call, making me change my routines and develop more as a person." Jenny, 38
"I want the pictures to be saved so the kids and I can look at them later. I think it's important that the kids remember everyday things, stuff that may get lost. I don't want us to just save pictures from ceremonial events." Johan, 47
"I can see myself using this, as long as I have perfect control (over my photos)." Jenny, 38
"I like the idea of not having to do anything myself, and not having to figure out how to manage 5000 pictures later on." Ulrika, 25
