Tree Rings of webcam / industrial design

Tree Rings of webcam
Tree Rings of webcam

From the inspiration of tree rings we derive the concepts of ‘timing’ and ‘memory’.
‘Timing’: As tree rings show the tree’s displacement of its center towards greater sunlight, so the camera detects the shapes of objects and adjusts to the shape most resembling a human face.
‘Memory’:As a tree grows and rings are added, so the camera has the capacity tosave the images it records.
Through these two features , the procduct can be easily affixed in any position on a computer monitor.
Combined with wireless technology this camera is a useful porduct for digitally recording and saving everyday communications.
