A number of novel camera concepts have been doing their rounds around the web. However, few of these have been realized into real products. Now, however, artist Eric Siu has actually created a unique camera, called Touchy, that can be worn and the wearer is able to see until someone touches the wearer. The camera detect human touch and the shutters open as long as the contact is maintained.


If the person who is wearing Touchy is being touched for more than ten seconds, a camera poised in front of it takes a photo and displays it on a screen mounted on the back. However, as long as the person is not touched by anyone, the shutters of ‘Touchy’ placed in front of his eyes will remain closed and he won’t be able to see anything.

It is a really interesting concept, also because the Siu has actually tried to work with an altogether different concept at the background. The real inspiration for this project comes from ‘social anxiety’ which Siu intends to bring to limelight through this project. According to Siu, the helmet that bars the wearer from viewing anything is in fact, a representation of the isolation that becomes inevitable when one starts relying too much on online social interactions.

So Siu tries to tackle this by providing the user with a helmet which works only when he is being touched by a real human being. The whole project is indeed quite interesting and you may want to take a quick peek here.
