Automated Party Camera

Automated Party Camera

photoBot captures happy snaps without people shying away or looking too posed.

Yi Chen

Product and interaction designer Tommy Dykes has come up with a solution to take the pain out of taking photos at a crowded party. The photoBot is a lightweight wireless camera embedded with an ultrasonic ranger that can automatically take snapshots when it detects people. The people in the photos look more natural rather than posed as they don’t often notice the subtle camera.

photoBot also has a tiny screen at the front so passers-by can instantly preview the latest images. Currently, the cute nifty gadget is still a prototype with no immediate plans to commercialize it. Watch the video below to see the photoBot in action.
