By blending egg with camera, Francesco Capponi has sidestepped this age-old question. Now, the camera is the egg; the egg is the camera. It's the perfect blend of form and function. Why would I reach for my slim iPhone when I want to snap an impromptu portrait when I could carefully pull an egg out of my pocket? (Is that an egg camera in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Or is it mumps?)
I'll give this to Francesco, though: the photos are really cool. Go make an egg camera today!
