All but Invisible: Minimalist ‘Air’ Camera is Light & Portable


Ask yourself: what does a digital camera actually need to do? Really, it comes down to a device with a lens, a means of activating it and perhaps an on/off button for downtime between shoots – and perhaps one so portable and integrated that it really can capture candid shots around your friends and family this holiday season.

Hence, the ultra-simple Air Clicker by Yeon Su Kim┬áthat requires only a pair of silicone rings that wrap a pair of your fingers – easy to (literally) keep on hand, thus quick to deploy when the moment is right.

The camera portion on the thumb recognizes the relative position of the other elongated finger ring, sensing whether it is at rest or in a bent position indicating an intended click – if the latter, it takes a picture and send it wirelessly to your local mobile device. Alas, yes, still only a prototype.
