The Yin Yang Camera is a Techie Taoist Friendship Charm

 - Oct 5, 2011
The philosophy that opposing forces exist in balance has been applied symbolically to technology in the form of the Yin Yang Camera. The playful concept explores the separation and codependence of different device mechanisms that allow it to function as a efficient photographic apparatus.

This iconic accessory is composed of two raindrop-shaped halves, one black and one white that fit together in perfect harmony. The first one incorporates the tiny LED screen and a lens on its reverse side, while the other has a USB port, flash memory and a forward-facing lens.

Without each of these integrated specs, the gadget would cease to impress most consumers. Krzysztof Kubasek's Yin Yang Camera demonstrates the necessity of combining different technologies as a microcosm of the larger themes of life.
