Innovation Week: The Scope Camera



Not yet available, but inspiring nevertheless. This is a prototype camera for kids.
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.
