Off to work early… I thought you would enjoy Meme, an awesome wearable camera, before I leave. I discovered this teenagers-dream on electricfoxy and love the concept. As one facebook commenter notes this is a, “[c]ool – a wearable camera with which you can ‘activate an automatic photo capture mode, which takes photos at a predetermined interval. That way, users can document an entire party, performance, or sporting event with minimal effort.’ It wirelessly syncs with your phone for subsequent editing/sharing.” I would have flipped out over this when I was sixteen.

Continuing with our exploration into photography, we have developed a new concept that capitalizes in trends in wearable technology and instant sharing. Introducing, Meme.
Meme is a fashionable, wearable concept camera and display that encourages users to snap, share, and wear their photos in an instant.
Photography is a great tool for self-expression in social media channels. Mobile apps like Instagram are very popular means for people to express their identity in the digital world – yet similar options don’t exist in the analog world. Our challenge with this concept design was to bridge that gap.
The traditional point-and-shoot camera is becoming marginalized as camera phones continue to improve in quality and functionality. We thought about how to re-imagine this device as a product that teens and young adults would want to use as much as their phones. But rather than try to displace the cell-phone as a camera, we wanted to find a solution that integrates into the existing tech ecosystem (mobile, app, social media).
Young people enjoy sharing experiences right at the moment they happen and define their identity through creative outlets. We wanted to design an affordable yet disruptive camera that offers instant gratification and relevance to its user. Emphasis has been placed on fun and self-expression rather than tech specs and functions.
As a fashion accessory, Meme goes with everything! Users can change the picture as frequently as they change their mood, interests, or style. Meme can be worn as a necklace, or attached to clothing with a pin or clip.
