Touch Sight camera for the blind

Touch Sight camera for the blind
The Touch Sight concept is a camera for the visually impaired. It records sounds by transferring images with 3D embossing technology so that people who can’t see can have a recording of the sounds of the event. Those who can see use their eyes to view a photo, the blind will use their sense of touch to actually “see” the image.

It’s an innovative idea and so naturally it was one of the winning designs for the 2008 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), which honors stand-out designs in products, ecodesign, packaging, research and concepts like this one. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Interestingly, it features MP3/PMP capability. The two empty/full analog gauges show the remaining battery life and memory storage. The Samsung TL9 is priced at $280. Perfect for those who are only capable of reading gauges and have been confused by every other camera that ever was.

Olympus 360-degree camera and lens

Olympus 360-degree camera and lens
You might think that a 360 degree camera and lens is a novelty that few users would be interested in, but Olympus is betting that surveillance and security big-wigs will be all over this, since it captures images anything and everything. It shoots in all directions, with not 10, not 5, but just one lens. It will take a 360-degree horizontal image with a 180-degree vertical view, wasting no footage on feet and ceilings. Olympus isn’t saying when it would ship, but I’m guessing casinos and other surveillance type environments can’t wait to try it out. Video conferencing would be great using this camera since the camera can pinpoint the speaker and capture them in a perfect picture without any panning.

The Camoria camera knows how you feel

The Camoria camera knows how you feel
This camera will catalog your entire life with pictures, based on how you were feeling at the time. The concept camera fits over-the-ear and sees what you see. Makes me wonder if designer Akbiyik Volkan has memory problems, or maybe he just likes to be reminded about what he’s feeling for some unknown reason. Probably just a control freak.

Me, I don’t get it. I have my memory to tell me how I was feeling this day or that day. Then again, these days, with so many people on prescription drugs and otherwise, walking around like zombies, this may be a handy tool.

Cute Mouse Phone in a familiar shape

It has Bluetooth stereo output and the player will play 3GP and MP4 video files. Some other features include a 1.3MP camera, alarm function, MMS, and FM radio. The Mouse Phone may be small and cute, but it’s price might scare some of you off at $225.

Shelly E-Paper digital camera

Shelly E-Paper digital camera
Polaroid is finally a thing of the past. Almost. You can probably still find film, but not for long. The Shelly E-Paper Camera could be the new way of doing Polaroid type instant photos in the future. According to the designer, “You take a picture, stock on the i-paper (consumables), send it via the Internet to other owners of i-paper therefore to wallets, picture frames, at home, in the office … everywhere and anywhere.”

That’s all well and good, but the pink with purple swirl design has to go. Grown men want instant photos too. Unless this is aimed squarely at little girls AND those select male adults that frequent Hannah Montana concerts. In that case, it’s probably not girlly enough.

Stand Pouch replaces the tripod

Stand Pouch replaces the tripod
Here’s a nifty little device that should come in very handy. Normally, when you can place your camera on a flat surface to take that perfect shot, you can’t angle the camera easily. That’s where the Stand Pouch comes in handy.

It’s basically a camera case with a tripod connector built in. The connector can be adjusted just like a tripod. You carry your camera in it, then just put your camera on it. Simple right? Well then why didn’t you think of it? Or me for that matter.
