Sony exhibited a lifelogging device, prototyped in collaboration with the University of Tokyo, which is equipped with a camera, an acceleration sensor, a GPS, etc to record and deduce the activities of a cat. The device can be used with the Twitter service and automatically posts comments in accordance with the activities. The lifelog data is first transmitted to a PC via Bluetooth, and, then, comments are posted on Twitter. For example, it is possible to automatically post a comment like "This tastes good" when a cat is eating something.
