Will These 5 Robot Photographers Replace Human Photogs as We Know It?

No, they won’t.
But they’ll take over when you want to take a break from shooting at a party or want to document your day without having to stop what you’re doing!
Meet the anthropomorphic party cameras:
- photoBot is a ‘bot that uses an ultrasonic ranger to detect where people are in a room. Like an adorable T2, he detects people to shoot and shoots them.
- NAO is a humanoid robot that can shoot based off the rule of thirds and the golden ratio. It actually learned what makes a good photo based on these two photography principles.
These robo-photographers are meant to be worn, so they’ll document your day from your perspective:
- The Autographer has 5 sensors that use a super smart algorithm that decides when it’s just the right moment to take a photo.
- The Memoto comes with no buttons because it simply shoots a photo every 30 seconds. Similar to the Autographer, you clip it on and have your day documented!
It’ll be a while before humans are completely replaced with robots, but we wouldn’t mind handing over the duties when our hands are full. How about you?
