Taking the perfect Facebook self-shot is a tough task that would be made a lot easier by the Butter-Fly Camera. The Butter-Fly Camera is a concept camera designed for the adults of tomorrow, who grew up obsessed with taking the perfect self-shot with their cellphone to put onto their MySpace page.

The Butter-Fly Camera was designed by Joh Minhoo and gets its name from a retractable set of wings (a tripod) that is located on the underside of the camera. The interesting feature of this tripod is that it can actually be folded into itself, letting you hold the camera away at arms length to get the best self-shot. In addition to the tripod, the Butter-Fly also features a dual display and a 14.2 megapixel lens.
