If you happen to be looking for a nice way to get truly candid images of your friends, family or others — you may want to check out the latest concept product from Yanko Design, the Sling Shot Camera. Of course, given the name, images and description that come along with, we suspect the candid images may be of your subjects cowering in fear of being shot with a marble. Then again, it could make for some fun pics to look at later. Anyway, the Sling Shot Camera has a USB port for connectivity as well as a built-in flash. But perhaps the most interesting part, the elastic band is how you take the picture. In other words, when you pull back on the sling shot making it look like you are going to shoot something, the vibration of the elastic band snaps the picture. With that, again, this is a concept product which means you cannot purchase it. And furthermore, you likely will not be able to purchase it anytime soon — but that aside, just think of the fun you can have. Or alternatively, the trouble you can get in when your boss learns that you have been running around the office scaring people with what appears to be a slingshot.
