In this digital era and self-sufficient gadget loving folks, we rarely have to step into a photo studio just to print pictures. Photosensitive is a project that aims to simplify the self-help process where cameras need to hook-up with computers for the printing process. “The application becomes a dimension of the experience, from capturing to archiving and sharing images.”
Photosensitive comprises of the following modules: Stenope, Viewer, Contact Sheet, and Memory.
- Touchscreen digital camera that uses standard photograph format (4 x 6 inches).
- The user shoots the picture at a print-ready size.
- The interface provides straightforward explanations about light, motion, and depth, allowing the user to quickly grasp the different parameters.
- Stenope then disappears, serving as a control screen for all the other modules.
Viewer, Contact Sheet, and Memory
- Viewer allows users to create and present slideshows.
- Contact Sheet works like a stamp and allows printing on any even surface.
- The loading base for the paper is also in a 4 x 6 inch format.
- Memory can store up to 10,000 pictures.
- Images are automatically downloaded through Wi-Fi and classified.
Photosensitive is a 2011 red dot design concept winner.
