Here's a reminder for concept designers and tech industry analysts: just because you can technically make something and it may look nice, it doesn't mean you should do it. Example: this stupid Facebook/Instagram camera, with a flat touch screen and a built-in printer.

Don't get me wrong. I'm sure that plenty of hipsters would buy it and wear it around their necks as they tote their soy lattes across Williamsburg's Bedford Avenue. New Age fun with a vintage feel and all that.* But the reason why Instagram got so popular that Facebook bought its cool hype for a billion of hot dollars was that everyone had it in their iPhones and it made things easy to share.


We just don't need another useless piece of junk to carry around with us. [ADR Studio via Petapixel]
