Iris Camera Concept Shoots Just What You See

 |  |  |  |  |  June 24, 2012


The Iris camera concept is a biometrically-enabled and controlled by your eye. The idea behind the camera is that it would use your eyeball to figure out what you are looking at and allows you to capture exactly what you see. It was designed by the Royal College of Art graduate Mimi Zou.

Iris is controlled by blinking and squinting, allowing for single-handed operation. It’s supposed to recognize your friends when it focuses on their eyes, and is supposed to identify people by their iris signatures. Once the signature is recognized, the camera loads their preferred settings. The user looks through the lens, but they can zoom in and out by narrowing their eyelids. To snap a photo, just hold your gaze and double blink.

The subject’s iris is also recognized and that allows the camera to tag the photo. The camera can upload files through Wi-Fi or store them onto an SD card.

Of course, the Iris is only a concept at this point, so don’t expect to see it showing up at electronics stores anytime soon.
