Touchy, A Human Camera
This is dope. This is a very real concept and that camera hat is fly. Hit that play and see the world through a different lens.
Still images below the video.
Everyday, we go through our routine taking our interactions with each other and our gadgets for granted. A quick check of the time on our phone during a conversation turns into reading a text, which then turns into tapping out a reply. In that way, technology has both helped us to stay connected and equally distance ourselves from those right in front of us. Hong Kong artist Eric Siu, a resident at the Ishikawa Oku Laboratory within the University of Tokyo, however, has turned this concept of human-technology interaction on it head (no pun intended). Called TOUCHY, Siu has created a touch-driven camera that sits on its wearers head, blocking their view until they are touched by someone else. Only then can the wearer see their world and the camera snap a photo, one every 10 seconds. As soon as the contact ends, TOUCHY closes the oversized shutters on the viewmaster-type device. Obviously, Touchy is not meant to be a product that will go to market; instead, Siu is using the device as a phenomenological social interaction experiment reminding us of the importance and the benefits of reaching out and touching someone. You can learn more about Siu’s project at his website or through his video after the jump.
