Camera Restricta is tool that prompts photographers to only capture one-of-a-kind images

Would you use a camera that was designed to only snap pictures that others hadn't? Does the allure of one-of-a kind uniqueness challenge a modern photographer – weather ameteur or professional – to invest time in seeing something in a new way?

Camera Restricta aims to do that by only allowing its users to capture images deemed as original. With this new, experimental concept, the camera that the photographer is using scans the area around the image being taken, overlays it to the user's location and looks for other similar images. The camera does this through the use of metadata found in similar images of that particular place and translates like information back to the user, alerting them of too many similarities. The users can then change the composition of their photo to be something that hasn't be shot before.
