Kiss-activated camera


KISS CAM is a portable buttonless play camera, activated to take a photo when you kiss it.

A transparent OLED acts not only as a flash, but as an oversized viewfinder and the touchscreen button.

When you look through the viewfinder and see something you love, give the OLED-viewfinder a kiss to capture the image. The language of social media – "like"/ "(heart)" – is changed into a gesture.

Additionally we´ve designed some lovely glass filters that are worn as jewelry to be manually fitted over the lens for an insta-filtered effect.

The photos are saved digitally and can only be viewed and selected once they are downloaded onto a computer, blurring the lines between our digital/analog experience. Follow KissCam on Instagram!      @KissKissCamCam
