The descriptive camera

I thought this was kind of cool. A camera that uses human power to spit out descriptive text of a picture.

I forgot that Amazon had this Mechanical Turk thingy. I almost want to try being a worker just reading the description.

Oh yeah, forgot I’m suppose to be talking about this camera thing. So he snaps a pic, it’s sent off to the mechanical turk, someone types out a description and sends it back, and boom.. a true text Instagram, not to be confused with @textinstagram.

Very cool project.
