Ever wonder how we’ll be interacting with our digital photos in the future? The BendDesk is a curved interactive surface being researched/developed by the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen University seamlessly blends vertical and horizontal multi-touch surfaces. The demo video above has a segment showing how photos can be sorted using the desk (it starts 46 seconds in). Say hello to the future.

DCHome forum member voigtlander just posted this photograph of a Nikon concept camera from Nikon Sapporo Showroom, where photography is prohibited. There’s a lot of discussion over whether or not this design suggests what a future Nikon EVIL camera might look like, since it seems to have the same form factor as existing EVIL cams (e.g. Samsung NX10).
The i dropper is a conceptual device designed to make transferring photographs from different devices and computers intuitive, quick, and easy. To move a photograph from your iPad to your desktop, all you would have to do is “suck up” the photo on your iPad using the stylus pen-shaped device, and “drop” the data onto your computer screen. What’s more, the data contained in the pen is displayed on a little screen to inform you of what’s ready to be dropped.
Here are a couple mockups by MacRumors showing what Photoshop might look like on mobile computing devices like the iPad or iPhone. Adobe recently published a presentation they did on various things they’re exploring with such devices. An example was using Content Aware Fill to modify a scene by painting over objects to be removed using your finger.
This is one of the most creative examples of light painting we’ve seen — Flickr user Janne Parviainen created this unique light painting photograph to show a skeleton jumping out of a body. It’s straight from the camera without any Photoshop trickery.
“Oops”, created by Chris Beckman, is a 10 minute art video composed entirely of appropriated YouTube videos in which the camera is accidentally dropped. What’s amazing is how seamlessly the clips are stitched together, making it difficult to discern where one clip ends and the next begins. The result is mesmerizing.
Canon Expo 2010 is going on over in New York City right now, and one of the interesting things being displayed is a funky multipurpose 4K camera. The 8-megapixel CMOS camera is capable of super high definition video and photography at 60 frames per second, and has a do-it-all 24-480mm zoom lens.
This adorable Pico projector concept which comes hot on the heels of Nikon’s more standard-looking S1100pj projector camera. The Pico, envisioned by René Wooram Lee, combines form and function in its anthropomorphic design: its blue “eye” is a projector lens and its greenish “eye” is the camera lens. The center smile is actually a microphone. The two feet not only double as a stand for the pico projector cam, but they also cover a mini-USB port and what looks like an audio jack. Brilliant!
