New Concept Lets Two Take Photo At Same Time - The DUO concept camera splits in half and can take two photos at the same time in different places.
An engineering student from London has developed a camera which splits into two halves, and takes two photos simultaneously.
The DUO camera is joined together by magnets and pulls apart. It has one trigger for taking photos, meaning that both cameras trigger simultaneously.
The inventor of the camera, Chin-Wei Liao, who is studying at the Royal College of Art in London, says he invented the camera as a system that enabled the person taking the photos to also be in the shot. When the cameras are triggered, one photo containing both of the images taken is put together.
The camera was developed as part of Liao's final project in the Royal College of Arts Innovation Design Engineering program.
