Ian would like to record himself during the day. He was thinking of using a used Google Glass. Leo says to be careful of that because Google Glass is tied to a Google account and he may end up not being able to use it. One solution is the Narrative Clip, which will record every 30 seconds and he'd wear it around his neck. He can find it at GetNarrative.com. It has an 8MP camera and can record HD video. It costs $199.
Another option is to wear a GoPro. He can not only set it to time lapse and video, but he could pair it to his mobile phone and do a live video stream via Periscope, Facebook Live, YouTube, and more. Samsung also has a 360 degree camera that they are coming out with that will stream live through the phone. That's coming out in the fall. There's also the Ricoh Theta S.
Leo also says there may be consent laws at play where Ian is going and he should check the local laws to make sure he's in compliance.
