Check out the Flying Stick Camera concept from designer Tsunho Wang, it certainly looks like a very cool way to take photos.
The idea is that you rub the stick camera between the palm of your hands and it gets charged via kinetic energy.
Then you release it and it takes off taking photos at set intervals, and it has built in face detection software so it always knows what to photograph.
An interesting concept, not sure how practical it would be, but I like the idea.
