Simple Muji Camera

The Ka-mu-ra is a concept based on Kanketsu, the idea of simplicity. When the brief was given to designer Forrest Radford, to design a camera for Muji, the obvious loophole was that Muji isn’t a very tech-centric company. So his first reaction was to creatively push the brand forward from where it currently is. Simple to use, the camera is off when closed and on when opened.

  • Touch interfaces on both surfaces pick up gestures made by your fingers.
  • An accelerometer controls which surface picks up information so as not to cause a conflict of information.
  • This allows for a totally unique buttonless camera.
  • Specs include 8 megapixel camera, LCD flash, Lithium Ion battery, a CPU with 4GB built in flash memory and an accelerometer, a mini-b USB for charging and transfer of data, an LCD screen and a rotational switch.
  • The camera comes in two colors, black and white.
  • The outside cover is made of soft touch ABS and the internal body of white polycarbonate.

As the designer puts it, since most photos taken now are snapshot only a few controls are needed. And since most photos are now snapshots done with phone cameras it seems logical to put this technology to good use.

      This would be even better of the camera body could rotate 90 degrees from the center of the chassis; that way you could use it the cover piece as a stand to position the lenses at different angles. Also, a feature I wish every camera had to day that would be awesome, is to use it as webcam when connected (or not if you could get some bluetooth in there).

      Also, not the biggest fan of the gestures. The zoom and snap ones are okay, but the others I feel could be simpler. Maybe a double tap for the flash, tap and hold to set the timer, and a swipe in the other direction not shown for video recording. Wireless sharing with built in apps would be neat too. Other than that though, I like the concept; it reminds me of an ice-cream sandwich…

      Don’t see the point of a cell phone camera without the cell phone… It should add something to a simple cell phone camera instead of trying to excuse its simplicity based on the fact that it will rival with cell phone cameras… What to add may not be high tech but it should be the key concept… The best thing muji could do would be to create a 35 mm digital film… The cartridge of a 35 mm film, with a sensor instead of the film and a USB interface… Film cameras would come back to life!

      that assist them to track pirate vessels from your very long distance.
      Since then, your Puzzle Pirates Examiner has earned her Seal for at the least seven pirates through the five production oceans (her
      subscription is lapsed and awaiting renewal, thus putting test ocean Ice out of reach).
      Doing away with piracy wouldn’t normally only assist the companies that would be the victims
      of this piracy, but would also allow it to be safer for
      the tourists that travel by ship.
