Punking tourist pix

Here’s a bit of brilliance for your Monday: "The Image Fulgurator is a device for physically manipulating photographs. It intervenes when a photo is being taken, without the photographer being able to detect anything. The manipulation is only visible on the photo afterwards."  In other words, it watches for the flash of someone else’s camera & projects an image onto what they’re photographing.  Check it out in action.

On a related note, Wired surveys cameras shaped like guns, cameras on guns, and more. [Via Ellis Vener] For other projected guerilla fun, see previous about Applied Autonomy’s “Streetwriter.”

    That’s pretty cool. I’d be pumped to get images like that. it’s be like photographing performance art. It would also make up for my weak tourist-photo skills.

    I love it. I wish he’d invented it back in the days of film—he could have started another ghost photography craze. Come to think of it, maybe he should exploit the fact that so many people believe in angels…

    Wait until Disney figures this one out. They’ll install Fulgurators as fixtures in their parks. Your vacation snaps get festooned with fast-food and cruise vacation ads…

    That is a great device to use to make some really nice effects! Yea, there are lots of potential for commercial uses and also some fun stuff..imagine what you can create with Fulgurator and your vacation..especially when you just visited some spooky places.
