Photography: Forget pixels, gimme glyphs

  • Matt Richardson’s Descriptive Camera captures images, uses real people to describe them, and then prints out only the descriptions they create. “The technology at the core of the Descriptive Camera is Amazon’s Mechanical Turk API. It allows a developer to submit Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs) for workers on the internet to complete.” [Via]
  • Adobe researcher Dan Goldman notes, “This is not just a nutty art project: the same general idea is actually being used to help blind people.” He points out VizWiz, “an iPhone app that allows blind users to receive quick answers to questions about their surroundings. VizWiz combines automatic image processing, anonymous web workers, and members of the user’s social network in order to collect fast and accurate answers to their questions.”
  • Text-Only Instagram is spot on. Hip hip cliché! [Via Mark Kawano]
