This week’s curio: Descriptive Camera
Snap a photo with the Descriptive Camera and it will print–not an image–but a short written description of the photographed scene. This connected apparatus uses human “describers” to transform pictures into prose, generating data about the most important information contained in an image: the subject.
This week’s question:
What other technologies could we use to translate information from one medium into another?
The Weekly Curio is a small morsel of design to whet your curiosity and stimulate wonder. Inspired by the intellectually striking objects found in Enlightenment-era Wunderkammern, a new intriguing trinket or beguiling bibelot will be published each week paired with a thought-provoking question.
