3D Pentax

Although they may be sight impaired, the blind have heightened intuitiveness and imagination. To help them ‘see’ the bountiful beauty around them, this concept camera helps print three-dimensional images of whatever it captures. With features like adjusting the depth of the shot and its range, it offers an engaging and virtual experience. An idea worth exploring, what do you think Pentax?

iPicture With iLens

As far as Apple is concerned there are many ‘what ifs’ that we all would like them to answer. Example, what if Apple made a watch, what if Apple made a camera? The answer to the latter is the iLens; an imaginable innovation that is conceived as a mirror-less interchangeable lens camera for enthusiastic photographers. So if you are dangling between an amateur and professional photographer, this camera is for you!

It basically caters to the inquisitive nature of children and encourages them to visit outdoors more often.

Truly Handy Cam

Truly Handy Cam

Apart from the complex technical know-how required to use a camera, you’re also supposed to be physically stable and nimble with your hands. Even as someone with full use of my own, I can barely manage all that! With its flexible viewfinder screen, the ergonomically designed Inclusive Digital Camera makes it easier (especially for those with dexterity setbacks) to shoot from a more comfortable, wrist-supported waist height. Perfect for shooting motion or long durations for anybody from the eldery to beginners.

Retro Analogue Photography In Digital Era

Retro Analogue Photography In Digital Era

When they were asked to rethink the camera by BBC Future, the designers at Conran and Partners were clear that they wanted to set about reimagining every aspect, from the form factor to the technology inside. The result is this new-age hybrid that has a gaping hole replacing the camera lens and no digital viewfinder to check out the images clicked. In a very spunky way, the concept transports us back to that era when rushing to the darkroom with the camera roll used to be so much of fun.

Kitsch Dress Your Camera

Kitsch Dress Your Camera

The Spectrum Camera Concept is high on the novelty quotient and very low on functionality. However if we keep our minds open, I see us using the idea of a customizable wrap-around flexible display in more innovative ways. Just the other day we heard of an Apple patent that employed a similar idea, where the display went wrap-around the phone. This can turn into something big, what do you think?

Inspired by the monocle and the color wheel, this LEICA X3 concept looks at picking the best features found on smartphones and marrying them with the ones found on a digital camera. So basically this is a lovechild that is the size of a lens and transfers the pictures instantly to your smartphone, tablet or Mac via Bluetooth. The camera is automatically turned on when the lens is flipped out and a simple user interface allows you take pictures in a jiffy.

Levitating Mouse

Levitating Mouse

Although currently in its testing stage and researching the market, I’d love to jump the gun and get my hands on the BAT – Levitating Wireless Computer Mouse. The story behind its development is the obvious culprit – Carpal tunnel syndrome; but I’d much rather get it for its awesomeness. The concept consists of a base (mouse pad) and floating mouse with magnet ring. I think it looks very cool and will definitely be a hit with my ilk.

The Flexer is a flexible lens digital camera. The construction uses a liquid silicon lens that allows one to capture the whole environment using its normal angle view. In short it doesn’t require another lens and is able to change its shape to take in super wide-angle view and close-up views. Capable of self-charging, the camera is idea for children and newbie who don’t know much about photography.

Simple Muji Camera

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.

Panorama Perfected

Panorama Perfected

How about another version of getting the photographer to be photographed? Camera features like panorama angles and stitching have to get innovate, so the next obvious step according to the designing community is to include the photographer into the snapshot, but with precision and finesse. The 360Vision Camera has a hinge connection to the display; that allows you to use it in many different angles, including self-portraits.

Photographing The Photographer

Photographing The Photographer

It is an everyday occurrence that you want to be included in the photograph with your family and friends, but end up being the photographer. The Not One Less is a concept that allows you to be in the picture. It has a dual lens, one that focuses on the main subjects and the other on the photographer. Superb idea, I hope Nikon or Canon is listening.
