It is undeniable that although people share a lot in common, one of the biggest differences between them is perspective, an idea that is captured through Duo by Chin-Wei Liao, a camera that splits conveniently into two. By breaking apart, it allows two people to take photos at the very same time. Viewing those photos will show just how different they see the world, even if they are in the same room.
Duo by Chin-Wei Liao, a designer currently studying for an MA/MSc Dual Degree in Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art in London, England, essentially provides an engaging and inclusive photo-taking experience. According to Psfk, it was "inspired by the fact that some people feel uncomfortable being photographed or don’t like seeing images of themselves."
Duo by Chin-Wei Liao Splits Apart for Two People to Use
1. Collaborative Photography - The trend towards sharing the photography experience through collaborative photos has an opportunity for disruptive innovation through apps and accessories that enable people to capture images collaboratively.
2. Split Cameras - The trend towards cameras that can be split apart has an opportunity for disruptive innovation in the camera industry by enabling new forms of usage and experiences for commercial and personal photography.
3. Dual-perspective Imagery - The trend towards dual-perspective imagery in photography has an opportunity for disruptive innovation in the software industry through the development of AI and machine learning models that can analyze and merge multiple perspectives from images captured by dual-camera systems.
1. Photography - The photography industry has an opportunity to develop new cameras and accessories that enable people to capture different perspectives simultaneously and experience collaborative photography.
2. App Development - The app development industry has an opportunity to create apps and platforms that enable people to collaborate through photography by sharing photos, editing others' images, and providing a platform for people to capture images remotely simultaneously.
3. Software - The software industry has an opportunity to innovate new software and hardware systems that enable people to merge and analyze multiple perspectives from dual-camera systems, enabling new forms of AI and machine learning-based image processing and analysis applications.
