Well now the exact same app is being constructed, however it’s not for music. Yes, you fashionistas out there, it’s for clothes! Just think about all those times you saw celebrities and other common folk wearing an item of clothing you adored but weren't able to establish the designer or brand!
Well the material pain is over, as it’s expected this technology will be at our smartphone finger tips very soon thanks to a company based at Imperial College, London. The company is currently developing the fashion forward app, which will allow its users to snap a photo of their chosen item of clothing, either on the TV or in actual life whereupon they will then be presented with an array of identical outfits available for them to purchase utilizing the photo taken.
Have you ever loved the smell of place so much that you wanted to have it forever? Designer Amy Radcliffe has created the latest smell-camera-technology enabling you to capture a scent, upload it, and then recreate it at your convenience. So now your vacation in Maldives, freshly cut grass, cherry-wood from a campfire, or any scent you love, can be stored as a data file and saved with Radcliffe’s Madeleine. The Madeleine is an “analog odor camera based off Headspace Capture.” By placing a smell source underneath the cone, a device will extract the smell and go through a resin trap to absorb the particles and store the molecular information. Any scent can be saved, and depending on the pungency, this process could take only a few minutes to a full day. To find out more about this impressive camera, check out the website.

3D Pentax Camera
Designer Prevoteau Mathieu has just created the 3D Pentax Camera. This incredibly cool gadget has the ability to take a picture, hook up to a 3D-printer, and then create a small landscape style sculptural replica of the photograph. While many fun applications for this product come to mind, this design is specifically aimed at helping the blind to see what others see. The model can be touched and held, and every detail can be incorporatd onto the page; it's a kind of a high-relief sculpture. This will enable the visually impaired to experience the world in a new way. The camera is fitted with a large button to facilitate taking a photo, and logo-based camera settings if you want to adjust the image. For more information on Pentax products, check out their website.
Tengrade is a social rating tool that allows users to “rate an endless list of topics from politics to pizza to pop culture, and beyond, and then see what the rest of the world thinks.” Essentially, the rating tool is like Yelp, but without words, and with greater functionality. Let’s say, for example, you want to rate Chipotle on Tengrade. All you have to do is type it into the search bar, and you then rate the restaurant on a scale from 0-10, where 0 indicates that you hate it, and 10 indicates that you love it (but in all seriousness, everyone loves Chipotle). As you rate the restaurant you are able to see what kind of ratings it has received in the last hour, 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days, and year. If you’re into statistics, there are even charts displaying the ratings it has obtained from users over time, including yourself.
