Blink to take a picture with the Iris camera by Mimi Zou

Remember the photographer’s instruction not to blink when taking your picture? Well, now you get your revenge for the Iris camera requires that you blink to take a picture. This eye-tracking camera uses biometric technology and is controlled by squinting (to zoom) and double blinking (to take the picture). The camera works for both stills and moving images, and it can upload files instantly through a WiFi connection or store them on an SD card inside until a connection is reached.

The images and movie above show a possible design for the camera. Royal College of Art graduate Mimi Zou previewed a working model of the technology at Show RCA 2012, the graduate show at London’s Royal College of Art.
