This little gem of an idea has been floating around the web for a while now, but it’s such a great concept that I wanted to put my own two cents in. This is the Triops, a camera that offers a ton of possibilities, and new experiences in photo taking. For example, you can attach a lanyard to it, and fling it into the air, taking incredible aerial shots. Or you can string it up at a party and have it respond to sound or movement, getting pictures of unexpected events. Built into it are 3 fisheye lenses, which coudl also give you 360Âº panoramic images as well.
The camera was created by Franziska Faoro, a German born designer who’s traveled the world studying design. I love that she totally destroyed the common notion of what a camera is, and was able to bring it into a new realm of potential. I know that I would think of a million things to do with something like this. And there’s no doubt in my mind that I would be in the street, throwing this thing up in the air as high as I could! I’d probably end up losing it that way! It would also be cool if it was waterproof as well, so you could have amazing underwater panoramic images. So much amazing potential!
