This Concept camera and screen is a little questionable
by Mark R
You might be wondering what this photo to your left is supposed to show. Let’s just say that I had another from my Source, but I found it a little too…what’s the word I’m looking for…creepy.
In fact, the basic concept behind this concept camera is pretty creepy, to say the least. If you don’t believe me, just watch the video after the jump. I’ll go ahead and post the other photo too, in case you are really curious.
In this video, you will see someone with a 70x zoom lens stare at people down below, and the image is put on a screen. Then the user touches the people on the screen, and it just feels creepy to me. Maybe I am biased.
According to my Source, the creator of this creepycam (which is what my Source calls it) says that its purpose is: “follow loved ones and satisfy any craving for touching them without the risk of being rejected, disappointed or otherwise emotionally hurt.”
Does this show how lonely we are, as a society? I mean, do we need something like this because we lack the human touch? If so, then I’m pretty certain that human beings don’t feel like screens. To me, watching the video below is like watching someone watching pornography.
Okay, I’ve gave you plenty of warnings. Now you just have to watch the video and see the picture, don’t you?
