The latest camera will shock you into taking a good picture. The Prosthetic Photographer, a new art project by Peter Buczkowski, is a grip-like device with a built-in camera. Using AI, it will judge every scene and, when something worth shooting is spotted, it will send an electric shock into your hand, forcing you to take a picture.

The AI learned its habits from the CUKPQ data set, a database of 17,000 photos that are pulled from the internet and ranked by humans. Speaking to Fast Code Design, Buczkowski said that “People have commented to me that the photos are just a representation of the database and are not aesthetically pleasing or creative. It’s just more of the same.” And, with the art project being a comment on how photography is turning into an algorithm-based act, that’s the point.
