At today’s hardware event, Google has announced a surprise new product: Clips.
It’s a little standalone camera that changes how pictures are taken.

The Clips device itself figures out when something exciting is happening—happy faces, good lighting, interesting framing—and, when it thinks the time is right, it records (silent) video captures.
This transforms photography from something with an actively involved photographer into something passive that should help capture spontaneous, natural events.
If you don’t trust the software and want to guarantee that a particular picture is taken, Clips has a manual capture button, too.
The Clips is described as being able to learn—it’ll figure out which faces and pets you see regularly and know that you’ll probably want to capture them more often.

But, with a nod to privacy, Google says that Clips can still do its thing while offline and not connected to Wi-Fi.
