meMINI – Shooting video in Hindsight

What if you could have a product that would enable you to capture moments on video even after they have passed? This is exactly what a new kickstarter backed project is trying to do with meMINI – a tiny wearable video camera that can store video bits and upload them to the web.

According to the developers – Sam Lee and Ben Bodley from New Zealand, meMINI is the world’s first WIFI enabled wearable camera which uses the Recall technology. Recall gives you the ability to capture video in hindsight. The way this happens is simple – the meMINI records video all the time and saves it locally – once the unit runs out of place to store the video it deletes the oldest footage. If you come across a moment you want to save – you press the bottom on the front of the unit and it saves anywhere from 5 seconds to 5 min (you choose).

meMINI has 3 hours of battery, records in full HD 1080p and attaches to you using a to part magnet (although we are not sure if a simple necklace wouldn’t be a better idea – especially for women).

meMINI already reached its $50k goal on Kickstarter and still has about 20 days to go. You can get one for about $150 (if you hurry).
