This camera doesn’t want to simply duplicate whatever you see through the viewfinder, it would rather describe the whole scene to you via text.
Created by Matt Richardson to explore the possibility of adding metadata to digital photos, it requires a team to analyze each photo, who then sends the description back via text 3 to 6 minutes later.
It’s safe to say that the descriptive camera won’t be replacing traditional photographic equipment anytime soon, but it does have the distinction of being the strangest, and arguably the most useless, bit of tech I’ve seen in quite some time.
