Get Zapped, Take Better Photos

Even when on the lookout for the perfect photo opportunity, it isn't always possible to raise the camera and snap a shot at precisely the right moment.

But what if the camera could send you a message that the time for taking the perfect picture was right now?

That's the idea behind the Prosthetic Photographer, a device dreamed up by Peter Buczkowski, who included the project along with two others as part of his master's thesis, "Experiments in Human Computer Interaction through electrical body part stimulation."

When the camera's Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered brain figures out that a vista is suitable for capturing, the device sends an electric shock to the user. The attachment is said to be compatible with any DSLR or mirrorless camera, which means that anyone could theoretically be trained/equipped to take professional-quality shots. Then again, the quality of the shots is determined by a machine, which may have a different interpretation of beauty and professional quality than the user's.
