Green-house announce 8x Zoom addon for cellphones
It’s very tricky to write gadget articles on April’s Fools, but of all of the “announcements” today, this was one of the most interesting one.
It’s basically an addon that attaches itself to your cellphone to give it better zoom capabilities. Although this isn’t impossible to do, it’s certainly unconventional. And given how slowly cellphones take pictures, this would require complete stillness in order to achieve decent results.
Fake or not, it’s an interesting concept, although I don’t think it’s well suited for this generation of camera phones. I think we’re still a couple of years away before our camera phones achieve semi-professional quality, and a couple of years from then before we really start to see these kinds of accessories emerging.
