If you’re wary of asking others to help you take a photo (because they might run off with your camera), the Wagabond camera is the answer to your problem.
Designed by Turkish designer Imregün Erturk, the Wagabond camera is for the lone traveler who doesn’t want to be a bother to others. It features an integrated remote controlled system that can take your picture from different angles—because it floats! Yep, you just set up the lens, timer, height and distance, and the Wagabond camera will hover in the air and take your photo from the best angle. For the solitary traveler, I’m sure this device will come in handy (if not for photo-taking, than as a travel companion).
