mmi remote controlled camera + smartphone app by or leviteh

‘mmi’ camera, remote controlled by a smartphone application

the work of israeli designer or leviteh, ‘mmi’ is a screenless camera that interfaces with smartphones to permit the remote shooting of photographs and video.

the camera itself contains a built-in kickstand as well as standard horseshoe mount for tripods. insertable suction cup or magnetic connectors increase the range of spaces in which ‘mmi’ can be mounted and used. by accessing the app onto iPhone, iPod touch or other smartphones, users can remotely view what the camera sees, adjusting the angle and shooting settings, including white balance, focus, burst or timer mode, and lens tilt. the application also permits the immediate uploading of images and video to web.

  • the worlds going more hi-tech, and there is less place for relationship. and now you don’t need no one to take a pic of you. it’s a pity, ‘coz we are getting far and far one from each other with phone, internet and cameras.

  • to mihangel and whoever hold the same opinions – the idea of remote-operated camera is valid not only to a single person: just think about a group of friends who would like to include everybody in a picture immortalizing their friendship when there’s no outsider to take the picture for them. and this is only one example. technology is not omnipotent – staying alone or socializing can be a matter (and an outcome) of personal decision. how pitiful is a person who lets technology rule his/hers life.

  • u got it backwards ‘mihangel’ — in fact cell phones, internet, and video messaging brings us closer to the world.

    startist says:
  • looks more like a personal surveilance device to me

    dbkii says:

    I fly paragliders. What I’d like to accomplish is remote viewing of the windsock at the top of the paragliding mountain from home. I’m thinking about leaving a smartphone at the mountaintop on a solar trickle charger. I want to remotely trigger this mountain top smartphone to snap a shot be ale to see the wind direction on my PC or 2nd smartphone. Or set the mountain smartphone to auto capture at 15 min. intervals and be able to see them without driving to the mountain. It’s 3 hours round-trip, and if the wind is not “right”, this is a big waste of time.

    There is Cell coverage on the mountain, but no electricity to plug into.

    Any ideas?
