In Proceedings of the the 1st ACM Workshop on Continuous Archival and Retrieval of Personal Experiences (New York, New York, USA, October 15 - 15, 2004). CARPE'04. ACM, New York, NY, 105-109, 2004.
eyeBlog is an automatic personal video recording and
publishing system. It consists of ECSGlasses , which are
a pair of glasses augmented with a wireless eye contact and
glyph sensing camera, and a web application that visualizes
the video from the ECSGlasses camera as chronologically
delineated blog entries. The blog format allows for easy
annotation, grading, cataloging and searching of video
segments by the wearer or anyone else with internet access.
eyeBlog reduces the editing effort of video bloggers by
recording video only when something of interest is
registered by the camera. Interest is determined by a
combination of independent methods. For example,
recording can automatically be triggered upon detection of
eye contact towards the wearer of the glasses, allowing all
face-to-face interactions to be recorded. Recording can also
be triggered by the detection of image patterns such as
glyphs in the frame of the camera. This allows the wearer to
record their interactions with any object that has an
associated unique marker. Finally, by pressing a button the
user can manually initiate recording.
