Google this week released a tiny $250 (£180) camera dubbed ‘Clips’ designed to automatically take candid shots.
Clips sits in the corner of the room and uses AI to identify familiar faces and determine the best time to capture a seven second video.
Google say it designed Clips to be an effortless way to capture intimate moments.
