Aurga, a hotshoe-mounted intelligent assistant for DSLRs, launches on Kickstarter

Now funding on Kickstarter, Aurga is an interesting-looking device that promises to allow users to achieve perfect images in seconds, with just a single tap on a smartphone.

Described as a DSLR assistant, Aurga slips into a DSLR camera's hotshoe and promises a host of useful functions for photographers of varying skill levels. Not only that, but its access to a continuously updated database of images should ensure that it's able to judge various photographic situations more and more accurately in order to provide optimum capture settings.
