Matt Richardson’s Descriptive Camera

Glad to see the "Descriptive Camera" from Matt Richardson land on kottke this morning; the project is a clever combination of engineering, software programming, and a brilliant concept involving what photographs are, and what they might be.

In addition to unphotographable (pictures I did not take), and the newly-launched @picturelesspins ("the best of pinterest without having to look at pictures"), the Descriptive Camera reminds us of "A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter" from Caleb Larson, the self-selling machine that creates its own auction on eBay, and most recently sold for $7,500. (Perhaps all they have in common is an ethernet connection?)
