Would You Buy This Facebook Instagram Concept Camera If It Were Real?

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 Facebook/Instagram camera, with a flat touchscreen 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 Bourke St. 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 because everyone had it in their iPhones and make things easy to share.

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