Just imagine that your would store all
your photographs, SMS messages, emails,
and in addition to that record your
physiological condition, using body-wearable sensors.
These data can then be uploaded to your PC,
and later to a mass storage server,
so that they can be used in your medical dossier,
to improve your performance in your favorite
sport, or to augment your memory when
recollecting stories about your holidays
Impossible? Not at all,

the body wearable devices,
and, after all, most of the gadgets
do already exist!
Besides, the idea is not new.
See section 2.2
for early visions of the memex
