Descriptive camera developed by student Matt Richardson

I was on my way to the darkroom this morning when I read this article on the BBC News application on my phone. 
This is a device which sends a data file of a photograph to an online site, which will then be described by users and then sent back to the device and printed within minutes. This has been developed by Matt Richardson, an Interactive Communications graduate student at New York University.
He's hoping to build upon the endless amounts of Meta-data which camera's compile and often remain unused and lost in cyberspace. 

This is such a fascinating idea, when we look at photographs we think and see endless possibilities of words to describe the images. They do say that a photo tells a thousand words, and this puts into reality exactly that. It also uses social networks and communications to build upon the device, giving it an endless scope of possibilities.
