Ubi-Camera: Take Photos With Your Hands
Framing a snapshot with your fingers is more than a gesture with the Ubi-Camera. Developed by Japan’s Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Science (IAMAS), the tiny camera fits onto one index finger, and can be tripped by the thumb of the rectangle.
Users can capture a digital image via infrared sensors that register the distance from the user’s face and calculates the image frame accordingly. ‘Zooming’ can be achieved by moving the ‘finger frame’ closer or further away from the face.
Currently a prototype, the design teams hope to improve the Ubi-Camera by making it wireless and ideal for carrying around in your bag or pocket. View the prototype Ubi-Camera in action here.
