"our brains store as memory only a fraction of what we see—the rest is lost forever. so why can’t we save our visual experiences for posterity by recording sights directly from our eyes? photographers would snap impossible shots, eyewitnesses would accurately identify criminals and life’s special moments would be stored, annotated and available for easy reference. a memory recorder might combine two existing technologies: a wearable computer that sorts and stores data (a memory prosthetic) and an implantable micromachine that intercepts and wirelessly transmits electrical activity from the optic nerve (a neuroprosthetic). with every frame of your life cataloged, this ensures you’ll never forget a face again—even if you want to."
