Have you ever wanted to document an event but not be bothered taking photos while it's occurring? Or have you ever tried to photograph an event but missed that special moment? The new Autographer wearable camera will do the job for you, as the shutters are automatically triggered by a sensor.

Oxford Metrics Group (OMG) is launching the new Autographer wearable camera in November. The gadget, supposed to be worn around the neck, takes photos when its sensor is triggered by something interesting happening.

The sensor triggers a shutter when it detects a change in temperature, color, direction, acceleration and subject notion. The Autographer silently captures the moment in a 5-megapixel photograph. According to the designers, the final images are a natural fish-eye look at your day.

The back-illuminated sensor is similar to the one inside a smartphone, including a fixed focus 0.6m-infinity lens made of glass, providing clarity and durability. The only difference is that the angle of view is wider than that of a cameraphone. The lightweight camera (58g) does not include a flash.

Other specifications include a battery that will last more than one day, 8G of storage space -- enough to capture between one to two weeks' worth of photos, GPS to record the location, plus Bluetooth so that you can transfer images wirelessly to your mobile phone.

Settings include the sensitivity of the sensor, which will also have an impact on how many pictures you're likely to get.

The Autographer will be available to purchase online for £399 ($641) this November.
