It's different in terms of its operations and abilities than the rest of the herd. It does this by learning from you and your face and the faces of people that matter to you and as with all machine learning the more you use it the better it gets.

The first version of this camera is more aimed at basic uses like people with small babies or their dogs, but you can already see the epic potential here.

The application of the camera is pretty simple. The functionality looks similar to what Google already does with its Photos app, albeit without the need for you to tell it when to take a photo at all. The computer inside decides if something special is happening in the forefront. It's a camera created to take candid pictures of you automatically from its perch.

That said, it also has 16GB of internal storage. You won't have to worry about strangers spying on you; the Clips camera isn't always connected to wi-fi or Bluetooth. The possibilities with this camera are endless as you would not have to do a single thing. You set it up or clip it on anywhere you want and it'll do the rest of the work. It doesn't grab audio, but it does have smart recognition features on board.

You can help the camera learn who is important to you so when grandma comes in town, you'll capture the grand entrance. It can recognize expressions, the lighting, and frames so every image it takes is stunning. You have to initiate the connection through an app to transfer filers. Yeah. We're assuming Google is trying to avoid privacy issues by adding the LED light. Plus, it'll alert you when its lens is blocked via intelligent notifications to your phone. These including their own Pixel lineup, Samsung's Galaxy S7 or S8 series and the iPhones. Lastly, the camera is priced at $249.

This is it for now, folks.

Google's product site says that Clips "is coming soon".
