Google Clips is a new $249 smart camera that you can wear
From TechCrunch - October 4, 2017

Google debuted a product that basically no one saw coming at its big hardware event today: A camera called Clips. Its not your typical camera, however its designed essentially for passive use, as a way to help capture moments that youd miss with a dedicated camera or your smartphone.

Clips grabs motion photos, the new picture format that Google created that includes some brief movement around the frame, like a Live Photo from Apple. It doesnt grab audio, but it does have smart recognition features on board. It also doesnt use any kind of network connection, so its not broadcasting the stuff it captures anywhere. You can connect to your phone to check what youve got.

Its a twist on the lifelogging wearable camera, which included devices like the Narrative Clip, and it uses machine learning to key in on certain people and pets of your choosing and only capture them, so you dont miss out on adorable moments. Clips is designed to be clipped anywhere, however, including around the house.
