The 'Blincam' was designed by a Tokyo-based start-up and was created to take photos easily from the perspective of the user.

The camera works by being attached to glasses and can sense when the person wearing it blinks or winks. When the user blinks, the camera takes a photo and captures whatever they were looking at. These photos upload to an accompanying app where they can be viewed or deleted. While some may see the camera as unnecessary, it could be excellent for people who seek to enjoy more candid photos as opposed to ones that have been posed and thought through.

By photographing organic moments from the exact perspective of the wearer, the Blincam is able to capture moments that would otherwise only be memories.
