Abstract

A number of wearable ‘lifelogging’ camera devices have been released recently, allowing consumers to capture images and other sensor data continuously from a first-person perspective. Unlike traditional cameras, lifelogging devices are always ‘on’ automatically capturing images. Such a feature may challenge users’ expectations about the privacy and control of image gathering and dissemination. Malaysians are not yet exposed to this research area of lifelogging and exploring the user perception will be useful for future research. Therefore, our objective was to explore user perception on the use of wearable lifelogging camera in the context of Malaysian culture. In this pilot study, 10 Malaysian adult respondents wore the camera for at least 3 h during the day, and at the end of the day they reviewed the photos captured. The respondents were given a questionnaire asking their perception of the photos and the activity conducted in general. The findings show positive feedback from the respondents, that most of them feel very happy when browsing the photos captured that reflect their daily activities. On the other hand, it was found that the issues of privacy and comfort in wearing the device were the main concerns by the participants.
