London based design student Forrest Radford has designed a concept camera for the brand Muji. Based on the concept of “Kanketsu” which is the idea of simplicity, and moulded by the limitations of Muji not being a very technology focused company, the camera is the essence of minimal. Simple features and obvious functionality with touch interaction this camera is a truly remarkable invention. We wonder what it would be like to use in reality.
When closed the camera is off, when opened it is on. Touch interfaces on both surfaces pick up gestures made by your fingers. An accelerometer controls which surface picks up information so as not to cause a conflict of information. This allows for a totally unique buttonless camera.
The technology inside consists of an 8 megapixel camera, LED flash, Lithium Ion battery, a CPU with 4GB built in flash memory and an accelerometer, a mini-b usb for charging and transfer of data, an LCD screen and a rotational switch.
