Ubi-camera: take finger-framed photos

Still in development at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (Japan), the Ubi-camera (translation: Finger-camera) promises to make taking photos more like the experience of drawing a rectangle with your fingers. Instead of digitally zooming in and out to get the desired frame, you simply frame a rectangle with your thumb and index fingers. “When you take a photo with your face close to the camera, you get a wide-angle shot like this, and if you move it further away, you can take a close up shot.” The designers of Ubi-camera are working to make device wireless, so that it can be freely used outside.
