Yang Ying digital camera is inspired by oriental wisdom
Though genuine photography enthusiasts would not touch the Yang Ying digital camera with a barge pole, it presents a design of considerable interest to gadget-buffs like me who are on the eternal look-out for unusual designs.
The Yang Ying camera conceptualized by Polish designer Kubasek Krzysztof, is shaped like - well, the hugely popular Yin and Yang symbols from Chinese philosophy. As far as the looks are concerned, we have to slot this device in the eye-catcher category as it has no take-away from a traditional camera. The camera is separable into two “tear-drops”, one of which holds the LCD preview screen and the other holds the flash memory which can directly be connected to your PC’s USB port. And that’s just how much we know about the camera specs at the moment as it appears to be in the concept phase yet.
Let your imagination tell you how difficult it would be to use this device as a real camera. But what if happened to be, say, the Yang Ying portable DVD player instead ? Sounds interesting to me...
