This project is an adaptation of a previous design of mine (Ka-Mu-Ra) for a design competition run by “Design-Students”
The brief was to design a product (the typology could be of our choice) for the brand “Lowdi”. We were supplied with brand guidelines but left to decide beyond that what we would do.
This concept is based upon “Kanketsu” (the idea of simplicity). Borrowing technology currently available to us in smart phones and laptops I was able to design the ultimate snapshot camera, which is also uniquely buttonless.
The camera works through touch interfaces on both the top and bottom surface of the camera which pick up gestures that can be made by your fingertips.An accelerometer controls which surface picks up the information so as not to cause a conflict of information within the UI.To turn it on and off there is a rotational switch installed in the pivot point of the camera. So when closed it is off and when it is opened it turns itself on. Data and charge is transferred through a micro b usb cable.
