The Wvil camera does social media

The Wvil camera does social media

Taking photos is serious business. How else are people on Facebook going to know about your relevant lifestyle / outfit / dinner / drunken hook-up? Problem is that friends with cameras are kinda unreliable. Half the time they’re taking photos of the wrong people, or they’re too lazy to upload anything at all. Artefact may have solved this very real (very First World problem) with their Wireless Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens: the Wvil.

Because the imaging sensor is situated in the back of the camera lens rather than the body, you can detach the two and use them without wires. So, for instance, you can set up the lens on the other side of the room and then use the viewfinder to stage the perfect photo. (Or you can just spy on people.) As the official blurb puts it, “The Wvil system lets you separate the point of view from the point of control.”

Instead of relying on idiot friends or being the guy stuck behind the camera, the Wvil allows you take your social media photo game to whole new levels. It’s also plenty nice on the narcissism scale.

Anyway, it’s still in the concept stage at the moment (and the video below is pretty dodgy), but it’s an idea we’d like to see developed. Especially if they do throw all the social media direct uploads in. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have Facebook photos to un-tag.

Great concept, but this video is VERY staged... Both of the guys asking questions about how it works, work at Artefact, the company that owns WVIL. The guy on the left is Fernd van Engelen one of the designers, and the guy in the middle is Tucker Spofford, another employee (can read the name tag). But still, would be great to see it come to life!
