Sony have announced a new type of wearable tech that logs your life, but are graphs and pie charts really the way to go?

If you're only just wrapping your head around Google Glass, the latest innovation in wearable tech from Sony is likely to blow your mind.

Meet the 'life logging' kit also known by its official name the Sony SmartBand and Core.

This new tech will literally monitor, track and record your every move and then chart your activity on an 'interactive timeline'.

What does this mean? Well, every minute detail of your life will be captured and stored as hard data so you can analyse it later.

The Sony Core is a tiny Bluetooth gadget that can monitor your sleep, which works alongside a SmartBand and the Lifelog app to monitor your phone use, exercise, picture and video habits...basically everything.

By informing the app that you want to reach certain goals, the tech will let you know how you're doing. A bit like your own personal trainer.

But isn't gathering information on ourselves a little, well, creepy?

Sony says it's only tapping into 'the quantified self' trend, which sees smartphone users turn their everyday lives into data.

This is only further adding to our cyborgs theory....
