At distancelab last week I saw Elena Corchero’s Handmade, a wearable camera for capturing the work you do with your hands. This is a simple, wearable solution to the problem of documenting manual tasks for a variety of new media, including DIY sites such as instructables for which the process of documenting a task can be as time-consuming as performing it in the first place. This tool – and others like it – could also help to bring value to products by telling rich stories about their makers and their making, associating new kinds of importance to the forgotten points of the supply chain.
