Dutch engineer Bjorn Karmann introduced the camera Paragraphica, which does not take real photos, but generates images using artificial intelligence. To do this, it uses location data.
Externally, the device looks like a regular camera with strap lugs and a place for a tripod. However, instead of the lens there is a plug resembling a spider, and on the inside there is a small touch screen on which you can adjust images in real time. Adjustment is carried out using three "knobs" on the upper part of the case.
The Paragraphica display displays the current location, time of day, temperature, date and objects nearby. Based on this data, the AI camera generates photos. She needs internet access to work.
The device is based on a Raspberry Pi 4 single-board computer. The case is printed on a 3D printer. The Stable Diffusion API is used as a model for generating images.
The project also has a web version where, in theory, you can take a "snapshot" of your location. However, the site is practically unavailable in Russia.
