With digital cameras and smartphones running rampant around the world, it is increasingly difficult for photographers to take original and creative photos -- Le Myope, created by Salade Tomate Oignon, aims to resolve this problem.

The "camera" works by being aimed at scenes that the user is thinking about photographing and finds images on the Internet that are of the same scene. If the user points the "camera" at something that experiences high "photography traffic" it will show up, but if it is a more rare photo it will produce photos that look like the image but are not from the exact same location.

This product and process would be extremely useful for photographers who are looking to break new ground, go places no one has been before and take photographs that have not been taken before.
