The area of human digital memories focuses on documenting our entire lifetime. Using this outlet, a diverse range of information can be brought together, such as photos, location, temperature and physiological information. Nowadays, we have access to a number of different data sources, thus allowing more dynamic and data rich memories to be created. In particular, the inclusion of physiological data offers a new insight into the augmentation of memories and provides a richer level of detail. This information can be used to determine how we were feeling, at any time, and, potentially, how we made others feel as well. Memories, created over a lifetime, can be retrieved, and we can see how our bodies have changed over time. This paper presents the DigMem system, which incorporates physiological data into the creation of human digital memories. A prototype has been successfully developed, which demonstrates the approach and evaluates the applicability of the research.
