SenseCam is a wearable camera that takes photos automatically. Originally conceived as a personal ‘Black Box’ accident recorder, it soon became evident that looking through images previously recorded tends to elicit quite vivid remembering of the original event. This exciting effect has formed the basis of a great deal of research around the world: there are over 200 papers based on work using SenseCam, the Vicon Revue and OMG Autographer (both produced for several years under license).
Highlights of the history of SenseCam, the Vicon Revue and the OMG Autographer include:
- The special SenseCam theme issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine from March 2013 and the special SenseCam issue of Memory in 2011.
- The man who’s worn a camera every day for a decade and has 16M life-log images.
- Articles about SenseCam in TIME Magazine and Science. Other media coverage listed below.
- SenseCam was reported by BBC UK and Channel 9 Australia documentaries, and covered by James May.
- The MSR SenseCam viewer and one from DCU. The NTCIR-12 lifelog image dataset was recorded using Autographer.
- SenseCam has been on display in the London Science Museum for many years.
- A number of researchers and clinicians have recorded their thoughts about SenseCam.
- The SenseCam 2013, SenseCam 2012, SenseCam 2010 and SenseCam 2009 conference series, which has since transitioned in part to the LifeLogging Tools and Applications (LTA) workshop series held in conjunction with the annual ACM Multimedia conference.

- The original memory study and a follow-up fMRI study with the same patient.
