The Canon Wonder Camera Concept

On showcase at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai was the Canon Wonder Camera Concept. It was one of the attractions at the Japanese Pavilion, along with a trio of Panasonic 152" multi-touch plasma displays.

If photos of the Wonder Camera paint an accurate picture of the imaging future, we'll all be walking around with cameras holstered like revolvers.

No doubt, the hardware driving everything will be much more capable.

Heck, we may even see language barriers go down.

Maybe not. Go here for the complete hagiography.
