Why would you want a throwaway camera? So you could have something to throw at faces you donâ€™t like photographing.
No, seriously, its designer Franziska Faoro says the Triops‘s mission in life is to â€œallow the user to experience new perspectives and perceptions and take the potential of digital photography to a new level.â€
The Triops made it to the finals of the BraunPrize 2007 international design competition and made Ms. Faoro â‚¬6,000 richer.
Triops is envisioned to be a triple-lens digital camera which reacts to sound, motion or manual triggers. Its three protected fish eye lenses shoot panoramas and sequels that show more than just one direction.
