Wil.I.Am iPhone 14 megapixel camera


The Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am is looking to get himself more involve in the technology field. Recently we have reported on the megastar interview with BBC Click, where he discusses his love for tech and his vision of the future.

Will.I.Am is now shifting his focus on the  global launch of his new iPhone hardware, which he claims ‘will turn your smartphone into a genius-phone’.

According to The Telegraph, “the first product from his new consumer electronics and app venture i.am+ is an accessory that clips onto an iPhone and transforms the eight megapixel smartphone camera into a 14 megapixel camera, which it is claimed dramatically enhances the clarity and definition of your photographs.”

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Will.I.Am stated: “We have our own sensor and a better flash. You dock you phone into our device and it turns you smartphone into a genius-phone. We take over the camera.”

From the report:

[quote] The camera will be the first of a series of digital products that bear his name – to support them, he has invested in what he calls ‘digital real estate’ online. He now owns the domain www.i.am. Users of i.am+ accessories will be given individual online profiles, for example www.i.am/Will.

Pricing will be announced next week at a launch in London.

The multi-Grammy-award-winning singer and musician described how he came up with the idea for the camera attachment at a photo shoot in London in 2008. ‘I was just hanging out afterwards, and one of the models took an iPhone picture, which circulated the planet before the shoot was even over,’ he says. ‘I took one of the photographer’s lenses and held it up on my [phone] and said “imagine this one day”. Then I said: “I’m going to do this”.[/quote]
