Indeed - bizarre in the extreme. If it succeeds then I'll officially join the "clueless, boring old fart society" !

Very interesting ? sounds like it is based on the Adobe system you pay but do not own it.

Re: And now for something completely difference

Its a bit bulky for a fashion accessory and anyway your friends are meant to cluster around the camera (phone!) to see the photo you have just taken before it whizzes its way up to the cloud so everyone else can see it. How does that happen with no display?

Re: And now for something completely difference

The hipsters might be queuing up but I can't see it catching on with the general public. It's far too expensive for a start, even in the days of film how many people spent that sort of money on D&P? I think someone from Kodak once said that a typical roll of film has a Christmas tree at each end and sandy beaches in the middle! Deserves to follow the Disc Camera into obscurity .

Re: And now for something completely difference

Judging by all the other things that would never happen this year... it might be a roaring success

Yes, maybe the Truxit supporters will think this is a good idea too!
