  • Will.i.am to Launch i.am+ Camera, A 14 MP Camera Add-on for the iPhone


    One of the stars of the Black Eyed Peas, Will.i.am, has recently decided to jump into the world of technology with the launch of a range of accessories specifically designed for the iPhone. According to him, the launch of the new brand will take place next week with accessories that he claims will turn your smartphone into a genius phone. The Telegraph reports the following about the news:

    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. Speaking exclusively to The Daily Telegraph, he says: ‘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.’

    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.
    Will.i.am has a development license from Apple which allows him to produce and sell the camera accessory. The i.am+ camera add on has already made an appearance in a video for Britney Spears and Will.i.am’s joint venture named “Scream and Shout.” The Black Eyed Peas member is not limiting himself to just the camera, he is said to be working on a larger range of many more accessories that will be available soon as well.

    The news sounds sweet and sour but the best we can do is hope that the accessories live up to the hype that is being created. The accessories will be launched and sold exclusively through the Selfridges shop chain in the U.K. Furthermore, they will be official shown off in London on November 28th with no news on international availability. The latter probably won’t take too long though.

      Not the smartest idea.....I think if people want to take great pictures they buy a nice camera....not an add-on of their phone.

      Guess he decided to stop trying to build cars, and instead build something else he doesn't know anything about.

      Why Is Will.I.Am Saying He Built A DeLorean?

      I have no idea who Will.I.Am is but most people seem to be suggesting he has not done any research. It will be interesting to see who is right.

      NOOOOO!!!!! Will.I.Am needs to stay away from music too! He tries to do EDM, but he sucks at it too. He needs to stick to his hip pop and stay away from Electronic Dance Music!!
