Future Trends

Technology has come a long way from the year 1500. But this isn’t the end for the camera. Imagine if you could in the near future have the raw power of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) put into a camera the size of a coin. A designer named Funamizu imagined this and even designed a 3D model of how it might look.

This little camera would be attached anywhere and would transmit captured photos wirelessly to nearby devices instantly. There isn’t any official development going on for this idea, but this could be a major leap for the photographic industry.

 

The Sophie is another concept from Mac Funamizu. The iPhone dock/case prints photos just like a Polaroid. A QR code and geo tagged map can also be printed to link it to a digital version somewhere on the web like Flickr. Clever and simple.
