Iranian photographer Alireza Rostami has a true DIY spirit. He loves repurposing old and broken stuff and turning them into camera gadgets (or even into an actual camera). This time he combined a broken flash and an old watch and created a powerful, wearable camera flash.
Smartwatches with cameras in wristbands aren’t entirely new. However, the ones we’ve seen so far require you to contort your wrist if you want to point them in different directions. It seems that Apple is trying to solve this problem. The company has recently patented a smartwatch with an adjustable camera built right into the wristband, which allows you to easily position it any way you like.
I always find it interesting to see (or own) different kinds of items that were inspired by photography gear. The Japanese brand TACS has announced a collection of watches that have been inspired by lenses. So, if you’re looking to buy a gift for yourself or a photographer in your life or treat yourself, this is definitely something to consider.
Perhaps you remember Iranian photographer Alireza Rostami for his experiment with “magic bokeh.” This time, he has made something you may find even cooler. He used a broken camera and turned it into a watch. And it doesn’t only look sharp (no pun intended) – it can take actually take photos, too!
