Concept camera Iris is controlled by your eye

Iris is the most exciting, and perhaps most eye-opening, concept camera we’ve heard of in quite a while. Designed by Mimi Zou, the camera looks like a small, rather non-descript lens. The biometric technology hidden inside the white, sleek design, is engineered to respond to instructions from the human eye; focusing, zooming in and out and taking pictures is done by narrowing and widening the eyes, and blinking twice will take a picture.

This groundbreaking concept camera doesn’t just stop there, however. Facial recognition will in theory identify people by their iris signatures. You can then tag the photo with your friend’s name.

We might not be seeing Iris in stores any time soon, but if we do it will certainly be something to get pretty excited about.

This video features how the concept camera would work if it comes to fruition.
