Innovation Week: The Scope Camera

By Isabel Kallman

Not yet available, but inspiring nevertheless. This is a prototype camera for kids. There is no screen or viewfinder so the photographer interacts directly with the subject. There is no hiding behind the camera. A built-in stand and mirror allows for self-portraits.

Designed by Dutch innovator Bas Groenendaal there is no screen or viewfinder so the photographer interacts directly with the subject. There is no hiding behind the camera. A built-in stand and mirror allows for self-portraits. Just queeze the sides of the steering-wheel-like design and you have your photo.

The inspiration? From Mssr. Groenendaal:

underprivileged children, e.g. children living in (former) warzones. Children can take photographs and self-portraits in order to rediscover their environment and identity, and share their point of view with others.
