Camerautomata is a ‘Magical Image Digesting Duck’, made by hacking a digital camera, printer, vacuum cleaner, mp3 player and connecting them by a single microcontroller. The duck, Charlie travels to many tourists spots in New York City, takes a picture when it detects flash light from other camera, and prints them out or posts them on the Net via WIFI.  This project deals with automation and artificial intelligence, and human desire for technology to replace human labor.
