13 crazy camera concepts

The Edna camera:

“It brings autofocus capability to these lenses through a shifting image sensor. With its horizontal mirrored design it is equally easy to handle for left- and right-handers. A distinction between the Nikon & Canon camera lenses and the HCI makes the platform accessible to the user.” (designers: Vuk JakovljevicMarko Doblanovic, Szilveszter Buzasi & Bernhard Ranner

The Rotor 360 camera offers a new way of navigating through the menu:

“The column consists of several cylinders stacked on top of each other forming a set that in would fit into the camera. To access the features and menus, just drag the thumb on the cylinder are in order to rotate each function. Each cylinder would correspond to a line displayed on the screen.” (designer: Charlie Nghiem)

The Sling Shot camera guarantees your pictures will have unique face expressions (designers: Sung Young Um & Jung Eun Yim):


AXIO camera:

"There are no tactile buttons, just a simple on/off switch. The touchscreen lets you navigate the menus but for the most part, the experience is quintessential point & shoot. Questionably, the lens is surrounded by a blue LED meant to indicate when it’s on but one can assume, the lens might pick up unwanted flare." (designer: Christos Ragias)
