Sony Tracking Device Logs Wearer’s Entire Life [CES 2014]
The Lifelog app records every detail of the user's day including social interactions and fitness activity.
Sony unveiled the new Lifelog platform and Android app that records the user’s activities, down to every mundane detail, including when they watch movies, receive emails or talk to friends.
The app also receives data from a small wearable hardware called the Core, which has an accelerometer and tracks fitness activities. The Lifelog platform then takes the data and determines whether the user is resting or walking.
Some of the data that the Lifelog software records include photos taken, music and videos opened, video games played, web browsing activity, messages sent and received, and more. The software logs the data into an interactive timeline.
According to a post on BBC, Sony assures consumers that the software includes stringent security features that will ensure the user’s data remain protected.
The Lifelog app and the Core will be available later in the year.
