Somewhere deep in the depths of our archives, it’s inevitable that every single one of us has an image with our finger in it. Whether a family portrait gone bad or an accidental misfire by a stranger helping you take a shot, it seems like our fleshly phalanges have a knack for getting in the way.

Prototype Camera Lets You Shoot Photos by Framing Scenes with Your Fingers

Last November we featured a concept camera called Air that is worn on your fingers and snaps photographs when you frame scenes with your fingers. That concept may soon become a reality. Researchers at IAMAS in Japan have developed a tiny camera called Ubi-Camera that captures photos as you position your fingers in the shape of a frame. The shutter button is triggered with your opposite hand’s thumb, and the “zoom” level is determined by how far the camera is from the photographer’s face. Expect these cameras to land on store shelves at about the same time as the gesture-controlled computers from Minority Report.
