As your kids grow up and your parents grow older, nothing is more valuable than time spent with your family. But in years to come, photos and videos also become very precious. The problem is, you can’t fully live the moment while you’re taking videos with your smartphone. This is where Benjamin Button, a smart wearable camera, can make all the difference. The device automatically captures precious moments so you don’t have to.

– Smart activity detection allows camera to recognize moments that matter

– Quick editing and easy sharing via the companion app

The Smart Camera for Families

Until recently, the idea of recording a life in pictures was the preserve of only the most dedicated photographers. Just sorting through that many photos would take many hours each week. You can triple that time budget for video. Busy Moms and Dads simply don’t have the hours to spare.

Rather than go without the memories, you can use Benjamin Button. Bearing the same name as the fictitious character who never grew old, this camera automatically captures the good times. The lightweight design means you can wear it every day, and intelligent software handles all the editing.

The Button name seems very appropriate when you look at this device. It is small and circular, with two dark apertures that look like buttonholes. You can clip it onto your shirt, and the device weighs just two ounces. There are currently three pleasing colors choose from.

In addition, Benjamin is very sturdy. You can safely give it to your child and be confident that it will survive. The device is waterproof, dust-proof and able to withstand heavy falls. In other words, you can take it pretty much anywhere. Furthermore, Benjamin protects your kids (and you) from electromagnetic radiation by switching off WiFi during recording.

Beautiful Videos

Benjamin takes beautiful 1080p HD footage at 25 frames per second. You can stop the recording any time by covering the camera. The battery lasts for 3 hours, while image stabilization keeps everything smooth. Your clips are then synced to your phone via WiFi.

The cleverest thing about Benjamin is the companion app, which utilizes artificial intelligence. It uses face detection and sound cues to find the most interesting footage. The app then allows you to select the best clips and create a personal highlight reel. As a result, you can reduce the editing process from 4 hours to 5 minutes.

“Because of Benjamin Button, you can now enjoy family adventures hands free — from your perspective or the perspective of your child. Benjamin automatically picks the best moments and creates short movies that you can relive any time. It is easy to share with anyone, so the whole family can enjoy.” — Benjamin Button on Kickstarter
