In this blog, we discuss what the arrival of the MotoX and its approach to implementing features like always-on voice recognition might bring to areas like lifelogging. I'd love to hear what the Android community thinks of this!

To a degree, that is true of any mobile device, not just the X. There are metal detector apps, compass apps, etc. Still some things a Tricorder can do that a phone can't, but the gap is closing rapidly.

Trippy.

I really like hearing possibilities surrounding what the moto x has brought. (and i know technically it has always been able to be done by Android users, but not really *readily* available and as usable as it is (might be, don't have the phone yet) now.

The main point of the MotoX though is that the many possible recordings could easily be done in a MotoX-way, i.e., having a low-power processor doing these recordings. Optimising these recordings at the application level (which lacks the control over pushing the tasks to a dedicated core) only brings you that far.
