Will.i.am has his fingers in many pies these days it seems. Clothing, gadgets, music… The latest gadget is a camera accessory designed for iPhone 4/4S and 5, and somehow turns your iDevice in to a 14 megapixel “genius-phone”. The “i.am+” branded gizmo has its own built in sensor and flash to truly make your iPhone a compact point-and-shoot killer. Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me though. Replace your point-and-shoot with a point-and-shoot that fits on the back of an iPhone that already has a great camera? Hmm. Perhaps Will.i.am should get back to making
music noise and leave gadgets to the experts.
There’s no news on pricing yet, but, the range is only going to be on sale in Selfridges in London. Hardly the cheapest place in the world to shop. But, I suppose if people have money to burn on pointless accessories, they’ve nothing to lose by purchasing the “i.am+” camera case thingymebob, which will likely cost more than a compact digital camera.
