Blogging in Motion

The overall winner of this weekend’s Open Hack Day at Yahoo! was Blogging in Motion, which mounts a camera and pedometer in a handbag and then uses the Flickr API (and I presume a cellphone) to automatically blog one picture every minute. Sounds like a purse version of Steve Mann’s Wearable Wireless Webcam, and more recently Microsoft Research Cambridge’s SenseCam system, all hacked together in just one 24-hour marathon.
