lifecasting

Streaming what you see as you perform your daily activities. Lifecasting is widely used for sports events of all variety. Over the years, numerous cameras, computers and wireless systems were stitched together to create wearable cameras. Today, cameras are so small, anyone can lifecast, and there are thousands of lifecasters worldwide. Also called "livecasting," "lifelogging," "lifeblogging," "glogging" (cyborg logging), "personal casting" and "mobile blogging" (see moblogging). See live streaming.

The First Lifecaster
In the late 1970s, Steve Mann was the first person to transmit his daily view of the world in real time to the Internet. Later, as a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, Mann was instrumental in creating the predominant site for "glogger streaming" and developing wearable cameras (for more information, visit www.eyetap.org). See sousveillance and Webcam.


Steve Mann
In 1980 (left), with an Apple II backpack and helmet video camera, Mann used his own radio protocol to access the Internet wherever he could install his wireless base station. Some 20 years later (right), he wore an eyeglass camera connected to a computer embedded in the fabric of his undershirt, both of which he invented. He is operating a remote control with his left hand. (Images courtesy of Steve Mann.)







A Whole Lot Smaller
Point-of-view (POV) cameras have come a long way from the Apple II on Steve Mann's back. This small GoPro camcorder takes HD videos and can be attached to the body via several mounting accessories. (Image courtesy of Woodman Labs, Inc., www.gopro.com)







Smaller Yet
In 2013, Memoto introduced a tiny shirt camera (orange square) that stores up to 4,000 pictures over a two-day period on a single battery charge. (Image courtesy of Memoto AB.)
