What? No Display On This Cam!

You got that right! No Display! So every time you take a picture it’s like throwing a dart in the dark, you never know what pose, angle or subject you may capture. Not knowing is sometimes better, because this ways you can capture “real” pics v/s artificial smiles. Oneshot Camera has more tricks up its sleeves: it needs a good shake to produce its own power (through piezoelectricity), no confusing buttons, just click pics like how you click a ballpoint pen. Face recognition software and light measuring software manage the show and biggest thing of all…there is no display! See your handiwork by uploading the pictures on the computer using the mini-usb.

The one thing that comes to my mind about its palm-sized iteration is that we live in a world where there are freaks who could misuse this feature. However keeping such freaks aside, I think the concept is neat.

    perhaps you could add a 1hour minimum upload time to make people think its like the one hour processing. then it can automatically delete all your files and issue you with a refund. There are no advantages to this devolved design.

    Looks just good, not great. Sungwoo park made also one, but this feels more thinked about product. But Sungwoos is retro. https://www.yankodesign.com/2008/01/22/usb-digital-camera-fakes-analog/

    My friend had similar USB camera few years ago, the problem was that it had only 1 MP. The other annoying problem is that the camera’s owner takes absolute control over the photos he is capturing.

    I think this is a cool idea and suits the Terrabyte memory Age in 2009. I bought my first Amstrad with 40 Meg hard disck for $7500. We have come a long way since

    Now that we have 8 gig USBs selling cheap this concept should be converted to a USB camera sans display.

    Something that hangs on your key chain and comes in handy to capture an image when you have left the camera and mobile phone at home for example.

    Would be nice if the lens was at the end so you can point and shoot with better accuracy

    If this had an lcd screen on the back and a gb of memory i would buy this for it’s minimalist design.
