PUNCH - This is a camera which was inspired by the loss of tangible memories. It is meant to connect both physical and digital while minimizing excess materials and the hardships in sharing images.
the PUNCH process - The PUNCH takes regular digital images but allows its users to physically punch a rasterized image of their photo. The punched image gives information which can connect its users to the digital gallery.

How the PUNCH works - The punch aligns a set of pins and then uses the force of the user to perforate a regular piece of paper.
computer interface - Here is the user profile section of the user interface. The camera randomly generates sentences from this information to tag the metadata of each image.
Inspiration - I wanted to allow users to create a hardcopy image but minimize the use of inks and paper cartridges so I was inspired to use the negative space of a regular piece of paper
The PUNCH - The PUNCH makes sharing photos easy... all you need is a piece of paper.
