Point (Your Finger) And Shoot

Point and shoot takes on a new meaning with this camera-equipped "EyeRing." It's a ring you wear on your finger and, while it's quite clunky as rings go, I'd consider it fairly compact in terms of cameras. It captures digital photos and wirelessly delivers them to a smartphone for instant viewing. It was developed not with photographers in mind so much as a medical device for vision assistance. It's a quirky but obviously useful little tool. I can't decide if it's more weird than brilliant, but I do know this: I want one! If only the MIT Science Lab geniuses developing it would hurry up and get it to market. Sell it for $39 and call it the first real "digital" camera. (Get it? Digital? As in digit, like your finger? Punny.) I'm guessing that's not going to happen any time soon, but a guy can dream, can't he?
