Imagine that, the Artificial Smile camera only takes photos of people smiling. But there's an obvious catch. It always takes a photo, yet people aren't always smiling. Clearly, the 'artificial' part plays a big role.

Created by Stefan Stubbe and Andreas Schmelas of University of the Arts, Berlin, the Artificial Smile camera actually turns those frowns upside down. Replacing those non-smiles with smiles from pre-existing photos, it'll make our world a happier one--one photo at a time.
