    This just blew my mind. A camera (?) that doesn't take pictures, but instead prints out a description of what it sees.

    this is more of a piece of interactive art than "real" technology; a human is providing the descriptive content, not the camera ... I like it a lot, but then I like this sort of stuff

    So if I understand it right, it uploads an image on to the internet where someone is paid to type up a description of what they see? I'd like to be the guy that types up the descriptions (but I need to learn to type a bit faster).....pay me now. Oh yeah, I will also make some snarky critiques for no extra charge ;)
