Can you remember exactly how you felt when you captured a killer image of an underwater subject? Nikon is developing a finger sensor that can read the user’s emotion—and log this information much like photo metadata.
The sensors (patent JP2017-143581) can detect biometrics such as heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, perspiration, and handle grip pressure. Nikon would place the sensors on both the front and back of the grip, according to a report from New Camera.
The goal is to capture the photographer’s emotions along with the image. The sensory data would be distilled into base emotions such as “joy,” “love,” “surprised,” “sadness,” and “anger.” Now all we need is these sensors on our underwater housings to capture our emotion when a pod of orcas hunts a stingray only a few feet away.
