Finger camera lets you focus, frame and shoot with your hands

Back before the age of ubiquitous digital camera set-ups, Hollywood directors and fashion photographers made finger framing a scene or person the universal symbol for the path to stardom. Amazingly, that simple gesture now powers a real camera.

The Ubi-Camera is a tiny camera that uses your hands to take photos. Developed by Japan's Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences, the camera attaches to your index finger and allows you to accurately frame a photo. You take the photo by applying pressure to its side with your thumb. Zooming in and out is accomplished by changing the distance between your face and the camera.

The camera is just a prototype, but the group hopes to commercialize a wireless version in the future. You can see the Ubi-Camera in action in the video below.
