Walker-Cam

Take pictures without falling down.

Today I went for a walk along a beautiful tree-lined path and decided to take pictures. Yet, every time I wanted to take a picture, the risk of falling was heightened when I had to release my walker and try to compose the picture. The tremors in my hands made most of the pictures quite blurry.

The WalkerCam has the all controls on the hand grips and has a detached LCD screen mounted on the top cross brace. I can adjust the exposure and the zoom, focus, f-stop and aperture right from my fingertips without releasing my grip on my walker. The functions I would normally see through the viewfinder are available on my screen.

       This is good for taking pictures of muggers too (there could be a "omnidirectional" setting)

       And here I was thinking this would be a Chuck Norris - related idea.

       The *other* Walker-Cam lets you replay the instant Chuck Norris ripped out your still-beating heart with just his little finger.

       Like the walkers on Star Wars, I want lasers on mine.

       Automatic anno?   

       So, is this baked or not? I can't tell from the photo. Anyways, I'd suspect you want to control the angle and positioning of the camera, as well?

       It is not. The photo was cobbled together in Paint®. If you bake it, I will come to buy it. I also figured the angle could be set with a simple friction coupling.
