The $399 Autographer clips onto your clothing or bag strap or hangs around your neck on a lanyard, and uses its five built-in sensors -- ambient light, accelerometer, magnetometer, passive infrared motion, and temperature -- to determine when to shoot 5-megapixel stills (though there's a shutter release if you want to manually shoot, too). A built-in GPS module keeps track of where your shots are taken. The camera can capture up to 2,000 photos a day, shooting for up to 12 hours on a single charge, and can store 16,000 images.
You can use the camera's Bluetooth to connect to an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet and use the Autographer app to preview, browse, and share your photos. The included desktop software for Mac and Windows gives you three different ways to view your photos and displays all of the data gathered by the camera's sensors, too, as well as GPS mapping data. You can also turn your photos into GIFs or MPEG stop-motion videos (which is probably the best use of 2,000 photos captured over an entire day).
