If the user’s iris is recognised, the camera will automatically load their preferred settings – including aperture, ISO and screen display. As the user looks through the lens, they can zoom in and out by narrowing or widening their eyelids. To take the photo, they simply hold their gaze and double blink.

German designer Valerie Hebel created the Keep on Turnin’, a stereo system that brings back the pleasure of music. As an alternative to the usually identical and mostly technical design of stereo systems it should find its place as a piece of furniture.

I know that sushi is a traditional Japanese food, but look what a German design firm, osko + deichmann, has done to bring the process of making sushi into the 21st century. This is a great new application to an established mechanism used to roll tobacco, but it is still clever.

Internet, meet Burritob0t. The creation of Tisch School of the Arts student Marko Manriquez, the BurritoB0t is a machine that prints burritos. The project, dubbed Burritobot, is more than just a stunt novelty–it’s a sneak peak at the future of fast food.
Part of Manriquez’s master’s thesis, the system allows you to place your order via iPhone. Orders can be customized down to how much salsa you’d like on your meal. The Burritobot exists at the fringes of 3-D printing. Unlike some 3-D printers which extrude layer upon layer of plastics to create a three dimensional object, the Burritobot extrudes customizable amounts of Mexican ingredients onto a pre-made tortilla to a user’s taste.
