Always-on Camera

I want my always-on camera, my black box flight recorder.

The technology is available to inexpensively produce a small device that records audio and video all day on it’s own battery power. This would be a boon to holding people accountable for what they say and do.

The device would have just 1 button on it. The user would push this button and speak to make a voice-note of a notable event that just happened. Once a day, the user plugs it in to charge and upload the last 24 hours of audio & video recording.

Imagine having this device the next time…

  • you are in a car accident
  • someone gives you directions to an address
  • you are assaulted
  • you are in a he-said/she-said discussion

It’s really a very simple device. Now if someone would just manufacture it. And that someone could be you!

    It could be – but why couldn’t it be you?

    Alas, there is only so much time in a day…
