Sure, if you want to give Google the right to use whatever image you capture with them on a royalty free basis in whatever manner they so choose.

I think the idea is that you start to make a continuous stream of first person images and video and beam it into the Cloud.  Eventually Google will have a deeper memory of your life than you or your family does.  You won't have to remember everything, Google will remember it for you.  (We can remember you wholesale).

This is where it leads...

This isn't a Google idea, Nikon did something very similars some years ago in Japan, and I am not particularly interested in their implementation of the concept.

But the point is the UI, or lack thereof.
