The new technologies of digital cameras have become more and more complex, which leads to creating more sophisticated parts and more complex disposable waste. Based on that issue, Bryn Seymour and Jon Rothapfel tried to help creating self powered eco friendly camera. Inspired by other contemporary self powered devices such as radios and lamps, the Twist Camera is a small portable digital camera that uses a winding mechanism for power and would be capable of taking several photographs per cycle of the mechanism.
The Twist Cameras features are minimal with the view finder being a simple hole in the body for the user to look through, a knob to wind for energy, one button for shooting a photograph and a multi colored L.E.D. (Light Emitting Diode) for the user interface.
Photographs can be uploaded from the camera via a USB (Universal Serial Bus) plug that is hidden under the winding cap to a computer for further distribution and viewing.
It is intended that such a device could support resolution of up to 5MP with current technologies and find use in a range of diverse areas such as recreation, children’s products and third world use.
The self winding mechanism is also intended to highlight how the latest technologies can live in a more harmonious way with us in our society and hopefully make people aware that energy does not just only come from a power point.
