Geeky Cameras Part 3: Polaroid

Part 1  Part 2

Really basic design: a camera that has the same look and size as a Polaroid picture. With small tablets becoming more commonplace, this novelty camera is certainly a possibility.

If it weren’t for the large screen this would make for a neat disposable camera. Still it would make for a neat camera for the nostalgic crowd.

To maintain the guise of a polaroid picture the screen would be square-shaped, however the image would remain at 4:3 or 16:9 or what have you.

A few features I’d like to see: the option to have all pictures appear by fading from white. Also an accelerometer could be included which would allow users to wave/flick the camera to “speed up” the development of pictures.
