@Max,

Since you have one, how well does this thing record both sides of a conversation? It appears to be more optmized for recording what the person wearing it says rather than others.

@perl_geek

Actually the constabulary are going more toward body cameras which have all of the above with video...

The constabulary should be all over this device. Date, location and timestamped notes, (possibly filed), in realtime?

No more licking stubs of 2B pencils to record miscreants' deeds, then transcribing back at the shop.

@EELoser: ".... insurance agents and other professions that depend on lying"

Remember the Hagoth Voice Stress analyzer?   https://www.ncjrs.gov/App/Publications/abstract.aspx?ID=46939 

It was supposedly able to detect lies by analyzing "micro-tremors" in speech.

@EELoser: ...This is for catching cheating spouses...

One of the things its creators say is that you shouldn't record other people without their knowledge, so the Senstone flashes while it's recording to alert anyone in the vicinity.

Having said that, there have been occasions in my life where different people have remembered the same conversation in different ways, and it woudl sometimes have been handy to have the ability to determine who actually said what.

This isn't for personal remindors.

This is for catching cheating spouses, unscroupulous car salesmen, insurance agents and other professions that depend on lying

There are great blackmail possibilities as well.

@Max: "Have you seen the Pilot?"

Yes I have.  For me the best part about that product is that it's creation came from true love.

I think it relies heavily on Google Translate, much the same as the way the app on your phone can translate signs in one language to another.

@Rcurl: ...the functionality of the Senstone belongs in a Bluetooth headset or earpiece insted of a separate device...

Have you seen the Pilot? This is an earpiece that translates from one language to another on the fly (via your smartphone and the cloud I think).

The only problem with that is that I don't think I've ever seen you wear a Bluetooth earpiece LOL

Re: Interesting but too pricey

@Rcurl: This is a very clever and useful device, but $100 is a bit too pricey for me.  I doubt they will sell very many at the $149 list price.

I'm torn on this -- on the one hand I agree with you -- on the other hand if something is useful enough then $100 isn;t that bad -- I've only had my prototype unit a couple of days, but I keep it with my "pile of stuff" that I load up with in the morning, and it's one of the first things I put on before heading out to work.
