Iris.

 

This concept idea for a camera was developed by product designer/mechanical engineer Mimi Zou. The camera works using biometric technology and interacting with human behaviour. For example, if you narrow or widen your eye, the lens will copy; when you blink a picture is taken. The concept also instantly tags people in the photographs which can then be transferred to files via wi-fi, or copied to an SD card. Pretty clever stuff.

See all of the amazing alphabet after the jump.
