Sony’s Concept Camera: The ODO Twirl ‘N Take

Sony Odo Kinetic CameraThat’s right, the picture you’re looking at isn’t a kid’s magnifying glass, or even a bulky remote for your Blu-Ray player – it’s a new concept camera designed by Sony that takes pictures by kinetic energy. When you roll the wheel along any surface like a paintbrush roller, it stores up the energy produced by its movement that it can later take pictures with, eliminating the need for batteries altogether. Although Sony has no current plans to put the camera into mass production, and is simply using it to show the capabilities of human powered technology, we’re likely to see some new kinetic products from Sony in the near future.If you’re curious about what kind of pictures the cam takes, check out a video of the ODO Twirl ‘N Take in action right here.
