3.5mm with a Twist

The 90degree Adapter focuses on the ergonomics of one tiny, often overlooked, component: the headphone plug. It’s just plain annoying to have that rigid plastic jutting out from your phone, tablet, computer or other devices. The 90degree gets it out of the way by twisting near the intersection of the metal and plastic. The plug becomes flush with your device, making it easier to hold or rest in a case.

So if you are dangling between an amateur and professional photographer, this camera is for you!

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.
