We’ve taken numerous “pretend shots” by framing a scene with a pretend camera made with our fingers. The Air Camera concept by designer Yeon Su Kim builds on the same premise, using the positioning of the fingers to capture images or video. The concept has two parts, a ring-like camera for the thumb, and a tension sensing device on the forefinger.
Changes in the position of the forefinger take the concept from camera mode to camcorder mode. A simple gesture of taking a picture captures the shot, and if you curve fingers further to make a somewhat round shape like a camcorder, the Air Camera starts capturing video.
