CAMERing - Stealth Photography At It's Best

The CAMERing is another James Bond style piece of gadgetry. Meant to allow convenient and discreet photos to be taken by s simple touch of a button, the CAMERing (as the name tells) is designed in the shape of a ring. The wearer is able to shot pics at any time by simply pointing the ring to the desired direction and hitting the shutter button. No more mingling after the smartphone, or waiting for the digital camera to turn on … this simple point and snap devices will allow take the pics at the exact moment of action.

The CAMERing was conceived to work with a platform that runs on tablets, which will be used to allow users to surf, adjust and manage the pictures taken.

The CAMERing was presented at the 2012 IF Design Talents by Hyeonsik Studio and Jeon Yengwon and it’s still in a concept phase. We’re looking forward to see the CAMERing on the consumer market and snap some cool pics with it.
