The audio camera

This is a product that I just want to love, but can’t quite “get” it.  It just seems like a handheld audio recorder, but I so want it to be much more.

Laurence Veitch’s Audio Focus is an audio recording device, which utilises parallels in the cameras and photography of the 60’s and 70’s as a way of capturing cherished moments and evoking further appreciation of our surroundings. The product is aimed at anyone who might also be interested in snapshot photography for nostalgia’s sake and those who would care to deepen their experience of sound as a sensory input.

If you can figure it out, please let us all know in the comments.  More on the audio camera here.
