The Benjamin Button clip-on device aims to remain unobtrusive when snapping, utilising software that can detect sound and motion to automatically take shots. Facial recognition is also involved in order to decipher between family and stranger.

The device is able to record up to three hours of stabilised footage in 1080p resolution at 25fps, while also being housed within a waterproof casing. However, due to health concerns, it doesn’t include Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

It has never been easier to have childhood memories captured and stored. Especially those that children (most of all ages 0-4 when we have very limited memory capacity), may not remember and which form their personality.

The Benjamin Button Company brings you the first intelligent wearable camcorder designed for kids and parents. This hi-tech camera not only captures the world from their perspective, but also automatically picks the best moments of the day converting them into enjoyable and easy to share footage, that kids, parents and grandparents love! The long term goal of Benjamin Button is to create an ecosystem around family memories and to revolutionize parenting by allowing parents and kids to have true shared time together, and at the same time, keeping their most precious memories for generations to come.

Behind the scenes

Benjamin Button is made by a young, conscientious company with it’s headquarters in Berlin, Germany and with operations in Bratislava, Slovakia (also their legal seat). The founding team of 3 people includes parents and technology experts, with a core team of 6 additional members experienced in PCB development, software and app development, marketing, PR, media, gaming, or manufacturing.

The Benjamin Button team is led by serial entrepreneur and former journalist Dominik Orfanus who is a father of 2 daughters (4 and 6 yrs). This team has been working on the original idea since June 2014 with many pivots and wrong turns, but staying loyal to the original idea – saving children memories that they might not otherwise remember.

‘Through the memories of the youngest family members we are creating a world where we are bringing families together in this fast and demanding era’, said Dominik. Together with a former school mate from secondary school Andrej Spanik (CTO), they are now focused on bringing the final hardware prototype to life: ‘We expect to finish laboratory testing in April, after that we will give it to our beta users for testing and certification,’ explains Andrej. The girl power behind Benjamin: Michala Lipkova is in charge of UX and branding and together with Boris Salapa, the Creative Head and Ivan, the crowdfunding manager they are now finishing the preparation for the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Dennis, Veronika, Matus, Daniel, Ludo and others are finetuning the product and service as well as the company partnerships. For more info, please visit: http://benjaminbutton.co/contact/
