Matt Richardson, the graduate of Interactive Telecommunications Program, calls this unusual device the Descriptive Camera. He used BeagleBone, USB webcam, and three LEDs to build it as a project of his course.
He connected it to Mechanical Turk which is a crowdsourcing service from Amazon that enables programmers to perform certain tasks against sum of money. His camera, after taking pictures, uploads them on the Web and users on the Turk service describe them in their own words and then a thermal printer, used in the camera, prints those descriptions like in the picture below.
Richardson paid $1.25 for each quick description of the picture. He notes that this whole process involves humans to write descriptions but one day the technology might exist when cameras would describe the photographs by themselves, utilizing the metadata more effectively.
I seriously cannot imagine how this camera will describe my husband.
