I Begin to trial DejaView!17th July 2012
Today I got my own DejaView device to start to wear, play with, improve (and fix the bugs)! While we've had working devices and a working system for many months now, up until now any devices that we have had have been used by the rest of the research team and our clinicial collaborators in London.
Two photos from DejaView: being interviewed, and caught and recognised shaving in the mirror!

The top photo was captured while myself and Paul Lewis were interviewed and filmed by a team from Sweden making a documentary about lifelogging (the documentary should appear later in the year!).
The bottom photo was captured while I was getting ready for work in the morning, where the reflection of me shaving in the mirror was captured by DejaView (which proceeded to recognise me and announce that I was looking at myself!)

This created some controversial discussions on how the tricks may have worked, and also a lot of confusion over what was happening (I think some people were beginning to believe in magic)!
After the meal, a group of us continued the celebrations afterwards in t... [more]
