[Gadget de la semaine] Camer: ing, your new ring camera
Camer: ing is a camera ring created by designer Jeon Yengwon and Hyeonsik studio. This allows you to quickly take photos, without the hassle of a bulky device, and then sync them with an associated tablet that allows you to view your photos. The idea is simple, and much more elegant than walking around with a go-pro on your forehead.
