Covet: photoBot – my new friend

I have fallen in love, it is a little one-eyed monster to-be-named and I WANT him; but beyond my own gadget addiction this is a seriously awesome toy. PhotoBot is the brainchild of Tommy Dykes, a digital product designer pursing a phD, and won notice after being shown at the Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh. This adorable tyke works hard, sending out ultrasonic sound to find your party guests and snapping photographs all night long. Now every moment of your life can be recorded in a series of stills and you will have plenty of photographic mementos to torture the neighbor kids with on the year 2075.

Perfect gift for the friend who has the most up-to-date Facebook stream.

Wrong for the friend who likes to hide behind a lens so they don’t have to talk to anyone.
