Was wondering about how cool it would be record every second of one’s life what it would physically. Open a online spreadsheet and landed with this calculation
If I store in MP3 i.e Stereo sound quality and assuming a average lifespan of 80 years, we just need 40 TB ( 1TB = 1024 GB) and it would cost just $10,000!! Would I be interested in such a service and would I pay this … hellya! Fast forward, year 2020 would I like to know with whom I was spend most of my time talking and what I was talking? Am I ready to $125 i.e Rs 5000 per year for that … sure! I think this is some killer service atleast the phone operators are missing.
Next lets take video – mpeg divX quality – Its just another order more. If I have a necklace attached to my neck and it records audio + video + acceleration + temp variation + pollution levels I am exposed =&gt; Do I have potential use of it? Sure! Does the technology exist for something like that? Yes. What would be the cost of the gadget i.e hardware max $300 (some of the hardware platform is also open sourced) what missing is the service angle. I think in another decade this is going to be a reality.
Yes, privacy laws and security become a concern but I will definitely value what I did in my twenties and thirties a lot when I can personally re-experience it when i am 50! Only concern with this business idea – upfront capital cost + maintenance cost. If we can get people on a monthly plan – I feel this can be resolved 😀 What do you say??
