Eye-Controlled Camera, Takes Pictures When You Blink

Mechanical engineer and product designer Mimi Zou has developed a concept idea for a camera that is controlled entirely by the eye.

Called ‘Iris’, it uses biometric technology to identify people by their unique iris signatures—loading a user’s preferred camera settings.

By looking through the ‘lens-shaped’ camera, users can focus their shots and take pictures by blinking—while narrowing and widening the eyes causes the camera to zoom in and out.

The biometric technology even allows recognized individuals to be instantly tagged when pictures taken.

Once a picture has been taken, it can be uploaded instantly through Wi-Fi or be stored in an SD card.

Is this the future for cameras?
