Vacations and events with friends often amount to an abundance in near duplicate photographs, but the Hitch Camera concept corrects this excess thanks to a scheme called 'Sharing Memories.'

The designer is Martin Spurway, and his idea is to develop cameras that operate on a joint network to share images. A group snapshot, for example, can hence be taken with a single device, and the picture can be instantly visible on all networked cameras at the event, or by easily distributing the files on the round wooden docking station after the fact.

Interested in creating a collection of cameras optimized for this, Spurway has decided to still include card readers in the hub for all other gadgets. The Hitch Camera concept will save device battery life, conserve collective data storage space and ensure everyone's got record of those memorable events.
