The ultimate “what is a photo?” gadget.

The Paragraphica camera makes photos, but not in the way you’re used to. Designer Bjørn Karmann rigged the experimental device so that when you hit the shutter, it collects information about where you are, the current conditions, and what you’re looking at — and then feeds that to an AI image generator, which creates a picture for you.

He also made a generator for building your own images. Is it a photo? Is it something else? Who knows! I want one.
