Japanese artist Eric Siu’s project is a social interaction experiment that transforms a human into a camera. ‘Touchy‘ is a wearable helmet device composed of automated shutters, a functioning camera, and an interactive screen. The person wearing the device is blind until you touch them, opening the shutters and allowing them to take photos for you.

If human contact is maintained for 10 seconds, the front-facing camera captures an image, which is displayed on the rear screen. Siu’s aim is for Touchy to heal social anxiety by creating joyful interactions. The short documentary below shows Touchy’s debut street performance in Akihabara, Japan:
