Spoticam Lamp is Watching You
August 5th, 2009
Antrepo Design Industry, the smart people behind some really cool concepts and art, are at it again with their latest design for a lamp: the Spoticam. It’s a lamp that looks like a security camera, perfect for mothers who want to rub it in their kid’s face that they’re grounded. And that Mom Is Watching You.
Or you can install a bunch of these lamps in your house or office, and then actually install a camera in one of them. Too bad it’s just a concept. I think electronics companies should hire people to read blogs and scour the Internet for concepts like this.
As you can see, the Spoticam can transform from a desk lamp into a wall-mounted lamp and vice-versa. Looking at this thing makes me want to watch The Wire.
If I’m going to design a lamp, I’ll probably make one that looks like a laptop. Or party lights that look like network switches and routers. I shouldn’t design lamps or lights or anything.
