A great video post from the archives: MIT Scientist Captures 90,000 Hours of Video of His Son’s First Words, Graphs It

Cognitive scientist Deb Roy, founder of Bluefin Labs, blew the curve for Flip cam-packing proud pops. Since he and his wife brought their son home from the hospital, Roy has captured his every movement and word with a series of fisheye-lens cameras installed in every room. The purpose was to understand how we learn language.

As the mother to a bilingual toddler, it is always interesting to read about language development. Glad to see advances in understanding this field emerging thanks to new technologies.
