Why would this even be considered something to have?


With image-tweaking services like Instagram turning our everyday photos into vintage snapshots, it seems like photography itself is taking a step back in time. A new camera prototype turns that idea completely on its head by producing a text description of each photo you shoot, rather than capturing an actual image. It's called the Descriptive Camera, and it just might be the next big thing in photography.
I know some folks are suggesting a tool for the blind, but as it's proposed in the article it doesn't sound like that's the intention.
