This paper presents a capacity estimation of a storage system accumulating all data sensed during the lifetime of an individual human being. The calculation assumes modern data compression and data collection schemes based on wearable or implanted devices under ubiquitous environment. More than 76% of the storage area is found to be used for video data storage of common TV image quality. The remaining storage area is for data from other sensing organs including audio, taste, olfactory and
