The photoBot by Tommy Dykes, a product and interaction designer as well as PhD student at Northumbria University, is a discreet camera that allows people to snap photos that are candid with a documentary style. An alternative to the common point-and-shoot photography, it can be likened to a surveillance camera, which not many people would like. Nevertheless, it takes pains to avoid that comparison through its clever design.

The photoBot by Tommy Dykes balances between covertness and transparency by way of its simple aesthetic and LCD screen. While its minimalist nature allows it to blend into its surroundings, the display invites people to preview their pictures to assure them that they ultimately have a say in what is being captured.
